“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,
he is a new creation;
old things have passed away;
behold, all things have become new.”
~2 Corinthians 5:17, NKJV
Every time the devil comes around to harp on who you used to be, thank him for reminding you to praise Jesus Christ!
Thank you, devil, for reminding me of who I used to be, so I can remember Jesus who has made me new. Thank you, devil, for reminding me just how dirty I was, so I can give glory to Jesus who washed me white as snow.
Thank you, devil, for rehashing my past, so I can thank Jesus for rewriting my future. Thank you, devil, for pointing out every time I fail, so I can remember I need Jesus every day.
Thank you, devil, for reminding me to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, so that old thoughts and habits don’t come creeping back into my life.
Thank you, devil, for bringing up the terrible things I’ve done, so I can contemplate the immeasurable price Jesus paid on the cross to save me.
Thank you, devil, for reminding me
what a difference Jesus has made in my life.
Thank you, devil, for showing me that I really am a new creation in Him! Thank you, devil, for encouraging me to share my testimony with others, so that they can know Jesus like I do.
Thank You, Jesus, for loving me while I was still a sinner. Thank You, Lord Jesus, for saving me from sin and myself. Thank You, Jesus, that You make all things new and that I am new in You. Thank You, Jesus, for sacrificing Your own life so that I could live forever with You. To You alone, Lord Jesus, be all honor and glory and praise forever. In Your precious name, Jesus, I pray. Amen!
