I have an old 'friend' who likes to remind me of my past.
Sometimes people don't want to let us move on.
How do you respond to people that we are 'new' without sounding self righteous, giving God the Glory?
What if that person doesn't want to acknowledge that you are new, and continues to bring up the 'old'?
2 Cor 5
16Therefore from now on we recognize no one according to the flesh; even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him in this way no longer. 17Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. 18Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, 19namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
Thank you Watchman. Your reply is exactly what I needed to be reminded of, and it blesses me.
I'm certain that others will be blessed by it as well.
Love back to you, Carla
