Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
(2 Corinthians 5:17, ESV)
When someone comes to Christ there is a change. It may not be readily seen from the outside, but the soul has been made alive. He is spiritually new. Now the work is to get the outside (words and actions) to match the inside.
Prayer: Lord, let what has taken place on the inside be made evident on the outside.
