2 Corinthians 5:17 ESV – Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
How many times have any of us become weary of the routine events of daily living; experiencing nearly identical patterns day after day. Living a routine lifestyle is comfortable but offers little excitement. Humans frequently enjoy having something new and exciting come their way. New things have an appeal that attracts us and very often distract us. The Christian faith offers newness that disrupts the daily routines in a number of ways. Many have reread a scripture in the Bible and have it suddenly reveal something that they never before observed or thought of. Many have attended a worship service and have experienced a conviction to serve they never before felt. Some, during a period of prayer, felt a presence and, perhaps, a Spiritual direction they had never before felt.
Such disruptions are blessings that are personal in nature and instrumental in spiritual growth. I hope that everyone may experience such disruptions in their lives.
