In light of the day’s reading, pause to reflect on the specific areas you long to see made new and how Jesus’s ministry calls us to join in that restoration. Let these shape your prayers today.
If you are a follower of Christ, you are living evidence of new creation. Scripture teaches that we, as believers, share in Christ’s death and resurrection. In the here and now, we primarily experience this reality as spiritual. We become more and more like Christ in our thoughts, attitudes, and actions.
After you’ve read, spend some time in prayer about your identity as a new creation in Christ. Comment/share with the community anything that stood out to you or encouraged you from the reading or your time in prayer.
