Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God …
—2 Corinthians 5:17-18, NIV
Prayer + Reflection
- By faith, embrace your identity as a new creation. The old is gone, and you are now new. Listen for the Holy Spirit’s promptings toward patience, humility, love, faith and joy.
- In these days, where strife and division dominate, ask the Spirit to give you power, courage and gospel-infused speech, that you might clearly proclaim the gospel to whomever you are led.
- In Christ, God took incompatible man and made him compatible with a holy God. Pray for the grace to take the initiative in diffusing anger, speaking words that heal and returning good for evil.
As a new creation, list five things you would like to be able to do, with Jesus’ help. (Use the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22-23 as a guide for what kind of things to pick, like “be good to my sister” or “keep peace within my group of friends.”) Then, think of ways you can do those things each day, and ask the Holy Spirit in prayer to help you do them. This is your holy “to do” list!
