Love’s New Creation

       II Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! (NIV)

     Our bodies don’t always perform as we desire. In spite of our best efforts to keep them in shape and young looking, wrinkles emerge, aging takes place and sicknesses appear. While there is no cure for outward aging, inner aging is treatable. In Christ, we can start over as babes. By accepting his forgiveness for our sins, we are born again. He takes away our old desires-the wrinkles of a sinful life, and replaces them with a new desire to obey his commands. And that is youthful living!
