Spiritual Strength For Each Day

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17).

Nostalgia, this sentimental longing for former things, is a trend in our day. We want things to be as they used to be. In Christian circles, we find an increasing tendency toward spiritual nostalgia. The old man with his tendencies and bad habits, his faults, is to be upheld. The old, decaying ego is to be kept alive at all costs. What is missing is this, “Behold, all things are become new.” Paul cries, “Put off..the old man, which is corrupt…put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness” (Ephesians 4:22, 24). Don’t stop halfway! Take the decisive step that is long overdue, “Lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees” (Hebrews 12:12). Leave the old life and enter into the new life of fellowship with the Father and the Son!
