A Daily Devotion for Thursday, January 20
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
Even though we are only physically born once, I have come to think of being born in Christ as something which involves a process. It involves growth and transformation which only comes through continued relationship with God. Being born is not enough. It is the start of our walk with Christ. There have certainly been years of my life which have resulted in little growth. But there have been years of substantial growth, as well.
Heavenly Father, you have helped me grow. You have been the transforming force and energy behind my very existence. I am thankful for being born into life with you. It was so long ago, I do not remember when it actually happened. You called to me when I was very young. I pray I will please you in some way. I am so thankful. Amen
