We have opportunities in our lives to change and become "new." As a quote that I recently read says, "There's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then." When we choose to follow God, we are not only renewed, we are reborn!
The Psalmist's song asks God to create a pure heart and a renewed, steadfast spirit in him. We can ask God for these same things. God has also given us His Son. Through Jesus Christ, we can have a new life. We can leave behind what we were yesterday in order to become better. Jesus can help us to have a purer heart and a renewed spirit. We can become something new through the grace and mercy of God!
Become a "new you" with a pure heart and renewed spirit given through Jesus Christ!
Thank You for Your grace and mercy and the gift of Your Son. Help me to be a new person that is better than yesterday. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
