2020 has been a terrible year you can’t wait to put in the rearview mirror. That’s why Paul’s words in 2 Corinthians 5:17 are so important, “So then, if anyone is in Christ, that person is part of the new creation. The old things have gone away, and look, new things have arrived!” Sure, it’s hard to believe this is possible when life still seems controlled by selfishness, pain, injustice, suffering and hopelessness. But that’s why Paul is so clear that you need Jesus. He’s the doorway that opens you to experiencing God, yourself, others and life in brand new ways. So run to Jesus’ embrace of grace as quickly as you can, and experience how old things are being swept away and new things are arriving.
