"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!" 2 Corinthians 5:17
Ruthless violence. Lavish lifestyle. Those words once described Jorge Valdes (HORE-hay val-DEEZ), a former Columbian drug lord.
His recent message to drug policy makers, ambassadors and top military officers in Washington, D.C., was surprising. He spoke of "coming clean" and finding a new life through a dramatic personal encounter with Jesus Christ. Even the FBI agents who tracked and jailed him agree he's truly been transformed by Christ. Amazing!
You may think you're without hope ... that you'll never change. But the Bible says otherwise. The Bible assures us: "If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new!"
Cling to that truth today, dear one. Christ can transform you. Ask Him to. Trust in Him alone. And say goodbye to that old self - serving you.
How has the Lord already began to transform your life, and how do you look forward to Him transforming your life in the future?
