Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! We have to live out our Christian nature. We have to make sure that our actions always express the fruits of the Holy Spirit. We cannot do this in our own power though, which is why we are in Christ in the first place. It is through Christ, we are able to live out our lives in the Spirit.

And we pray:

Dear God, I thank You that I am not left alone to deal with the things I need to let go of. Thank You, Father, that You are making me a better person day in and day out. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
