Lenten Reading for March 17


Describing the new life offered to us in Christ, Paul writes:

So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new! (2Corinthians 5:22) In the Christian life, we are invited to live out of the new creation rather than out of the old creation. This means saying goodbye to the pig poop in the far country, and living gratefully in the father’s house. It means concluding that our old resentments as well as our tired self-righteousness needs to be left behind so that we can begin dancing in the party and enjoying a leg of lamb with our long lost brother.What does living out of the new creation mean for us, personally, and collectively?
