New Creation

Do you yearn to break free from the chains of your past? Are you weary of running Or wearing a mask? Pain, guilt, shame, and despair Ugly, heavy—it’s too much to bear Hope shines through the dark When all else seems lost He took all our sin When He bore the cross No longer slaves, no need to fear His burden is light; God’s presence is near Will you receive the freedom He gives? Grace is for all; healing is here Joy, forgiveness, peace for the taking A new creation in Christ in the making • Savannah Coleman • Do you ever feel like you’re running, or like you’re wearing a mask? • Jesus came to free us—not only from sin and death—but also from shame and fear. From the beginning, God had a plan to send His Son, Jesus, to save us. When Adam and Eve sinned, death reigned—pain, guilt, shame, and despair were the rule of the day—until God abundantly provided the gift of new life through Jesus Christ. This gift is for everyone who puts their trust in Him (Romans 5:17-21, 10:9). Have you made the decision to put your trust in Jesus? (If you’d like to know more about what this means, see our “Know Jesus” page.) • Once you belong to Christ, He begins a good work in you that He promises to bring to completion until the day He comes again (Philippians 1:3-11). Jesus invites us to live in His freedom and abundance. As you spend time in God’s presence, He will deepen your knowledge of Himself and equip you with everything you need to follow Him. How do you like to spend time with God? Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV)
