Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, and look, new things have come. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
Today I am thankful for my relationship with my Savior, Jesus Christ. I’m thankful that God sent His Son, Jesus, to earth to live a perfect, sinless life, to die on a cross, and rescue me from my sins. I’m thankful that He desires a relationship with me. I’m thankful for the opportunity to live out my faith freely, to read my Bible with no persecution, and to worship with no oppression.
I’m thankful that I’m no longer the person I was before Christ. I’m thankful that, like 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, I am a new creation because of Christ. I’m thankful for the grace He shows me each and every day of my life—grace I don’t deserve, yet He gives me anyway.
