The apostle Paul writes that God provides a brand new life to the Christ-follower in exchange for the old.

II Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.   (NASB)

Today our world is divided into racial differences, political differences, sexual differences, ethical differences . . . generational differences, etc. The younger generation seems to have set a course 180 degrees from their older counterparts. With the future looking bleak — people are asking, “What is there to live for?”

In the 1st century things seemed equally bleak, but Christ — through the disciples — was on the verge of turning that bleak world upside down! Christ is present in the 21st century and His ability to change things is undiminished. Today, no matter how you have lived to this point – you can make a new start!
