“…you’ve become a new person. This new person is continually renewed in knowledge to be like its Creator.” (Colossians 3: 10, God’s Word Translation)
The more we know of God, of Life, the more we are made new. We can’t fail to give up—as unreasonable and unnatural and unnecessary—that sense of ourselves that isn’t up to par. God’s standards are high and holy. They are beyond the lowered expectations we may have for ourselves and our lives.
You have become a new person. Each day, you have a renewed opportunity to get better acquainted with who you really are, today. This “you” is the idea that God created, not the one feeling old and weary with years and fears and tears. God made you like Himself. He made you of Spirit, Truth, and Love. He created each one of us to actively and accurately express His qualities and nature today.
Recognize the real you. Every day grants us the occasion to agree to be our best selves, our true selves, new to this moment and brand new in it. You can choose to live as God made you and sees you, and to give up the limited, limiting, depressing, declining, and entirely false. Today is your day to shine. You have become a new person, because God’s Life and Love is constantly revealing new ideas, new outlooks, new perspectives to you and through you. Be willing, ready, eager, and grateful to realize and experience this vibrant newness in yourself, in others, and in your life.
