Out with the old and in with the new

What a concept. A fresh start. A clean slate.

Hhhmmm...sounds a lot like the life we have in Christ. 1 John 1:9 "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and cleanse us of all unrighteousness". I love that. A new beginning with no dirt (because we are cleansed), no bondage (because He has forgiven us) And we know that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Free to start over. And all we have to do is confess. (sounds so simple)

But I know that with true confession comes freedom. Freedom from guilt. Freedom from fear. Freedom to live out my life in the authority God has given me. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says that "if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things have passed away; behold the new things have come."

Again, OUT with the old and IN with the new. What a concept!!

As I start 2009 I am convinced that it will be a year of tearing down, letting go, giving away and true freedom.

Happy New Year. Happy New Life.
