Goodbye

Years and
times of past
I’ve spent
living frivolously,
when the altar call
of my life was made
through Calvary,
I was made free.

Free to begin again,
free to start anew
– my life before
was just a preview,
of the greatness He
wanted to do inside,
to bid the old man
adieu, goodbye.

Saying goodbye isn’t always a bad thing.  It is a time when we are able to clean out certain things in our lives that were hindrances and unprofitable.  Even in our own character, there can be things we would like to rid ourselves of and start anew.  When that newness starts with Christ, you can never go wrong.  When the new I am seeking is found in Him, I may not be guaranteed a life of ease and success, but I am guaranteed a new life with a glorious future to behold.

Letting go.  Saying goodbye is sometimes the best thing we can do for ourselves.  Especially if it is keeping us from something far greater.

I can’t guarantee you a lot in life, but I can guarantee that anything you let go of will pale in comparison to what you find in our Savior.

Goodbye, old man.  It’s time for the new.

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17

“That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;” Ephesians 4:22-23

“And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:” Colossians 3:10

“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” 1 John 4:4

“We Are Made New!”

New. What a great word! What was, is now
gone. The old is done away with and put in the
past. It doesn’t have a place in the here and
now. For now, “all things are become new.”

Life is now seen with different eyes; with a
different vision. Because Christ has changed
us from what we used to be, now we see us
as He sees us – NEW! We have been
transformed. We have been remade. Our
lives have been restored. And now, our walk is
made great. Bought with a price and made
whole through and through. Saved creatures
in Jesus Christ, who are now totally NEW!
