2 Corinthians 5:16-17
So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
Being part of a street ministry over the past year has opened my eyes to see the people in need who walk by and into our church doors on a weeknight. Apart from showing Christ-like love and our hearts being renewed in His Spirit, this verse reminds me to welcome and nurture that same revival of love, hope and forgiveness in others through the good news of Jesus.
