2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
Are we comfortable with where we are? We tend to keep doing what we have always done because it is comfortable. But all that we have learned in the past might be leading us astray.
We have relied on past teaching to guide us into our walk with God. We learned all the do's and don't's and work at following them religiously.
Our walk has become religious instead of relational. God doesn't want us to just do what someone else said he wants. He wants us to listen to the Holy Spirit he sent to live in us. Our spirit and his are one.
He who lives in us is greater than he who is the world. We are in Christ and he is in us. He will never leave us or forsake us. The kingdom of God is within us. We are eternal. And the Holy Spirit teaches us all things.
It is time to give thanks for all we learned in the past that brought us to this moment in God. But it is time to let go of a lot of that old programming and build a fuller relationship with him.
We need to stop being comfortable in our knowledge of old. It is time to reach out with open minds and hearts.
It is no longer about rules and traditions. It is about listening to the Holy Spirit and allowing Him to lead us daily into all truth.
