Daily Devotional 10/29/09 The Former Things

From: Reflections

Hebrews 6:12, NIV: We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.

We are told by Paul that if we are in Christ, we are a new creation; “old things are past away, behold, all things are become new” (2 Cor. 5:17). In his words and throughout scripture we find a principle of change that takes place, and continues to take place, in the heart of any who come to the Lord. We are encouraged not to turn again to the “former things” we did before we knew Him. But to continue moving forward--building on top of what God has made us--growing to maturity in our faith.
