“Each of you is now a new person. You are becoming more and more like your Creator, and you will understand him better.” (Colossians 3: 10, Contemporary English Version)
You are a new person today. Each moment we are increasing in awareness, experience, knowledge. This growth goes on humanly, of course, but our real progress is spiritual, and this is what truly renews us.
For moving through time can seem to mean both advancement and decline. But spiritual growth is a constant becoming. It is that continual opening of self to the good news, the reality of who we are as God’s own ideas. As we recognize more of God’s character—goodness, Love, immortal Life, Truth, justice—we begin to see what is real and enduring. We realize that those very qualities that we love are what we are made of.
And this true you is always brand new, for God is ageless and timeless, and His ideas express that. We can feel free to let go of the burdensome view or ourselves and of life. We can be open to believing, trusting, releasing ego and fear, and waking up to Soul’s promises.
This verse announces that we are now a new person. We are not waiting for this refreshing reality. We can accept this exciting fact today and be ready for tomorrow’s inspiration and exultation.
