What narrative plays in the background of your life that fuels your choices and drives your focus?
Is it an old story or your new one in Christ?
Jesus came to change your story.
God has called you to live a different story than the one handed down to you from your parents or the world.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV
It’s a new way of living, of thinking, of being.
It is a new story with a new ending.
Sometimes you may revert to your old ways, old why’s, the old dialogue, the old labels, old mode of operation but every day is a new day to learn how to live with a new narrative- God’s.
In Christ, you have everything you need to live a new one.
“Everything that goes into a life of pleasing God has been miraculously given to us by getting to know, personally and intimately, the One who invited us to God.
The best invitation we ever received!
We were also given absolutely terrific promises to pass on to you—your tickets to participation in the life of God after you turned your back on a world corrupted by lust.”
2 Peter 1:3-4 MSG
This is not a once-in-a-lifetime change, it is an every-day-opportunity-to-do-it -differently, and learn- to-live-by- the- grace- of -Jesus change.
Take a moment…take a deep breath, and remember you have a new story to live today.
Leave the old one at the cross and embrace the new one with the help of the Holy Spirit.
What story are you living?
