Old vs. new …

This morning I was reading the story of Uzziah, King of Judah as told in 2 Chronicles. He was a good king but disobeyed God. He became powerful and pride led to his downfall. He went to the temple to burn incense to God – but only the priest were to do this according to the law. God immediately struck him with leprosy. Ouch!

Of course, I began to question God about such a cruel punishment. I was then led to read a portion of scripture from Mark 1:40-42 – A man with leprosy came to him and begged him on his knees, ‘If you are willing, you can make me clean.’ Filled with compassion, Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. ‘I am willing,’ he said. ‘Be clean!’ Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cured.”

Wow! I thought about the scripture in 2 Corinthians 2:17 – “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come. The old has gone, the new is here!” 

 I am no longer bound under the weight of the old law – Christ came to set me free. I trust Him to be willing to set me free from anything and everything! I am cleansed, I am whole, and I am a new creation … because He was willing!

 

About RealMomx2

I honestly don't like to talk about myself, and I have started trying to write something here about four times. Each time everything I say seems so lame. I'm surprised I haven't erased this yet. The name "RealMomx2" came about from wanting people to understand that just because I am an adoptive mom, doesn't mean I'm not a real mom. I can't tell you how many times my oldest daughter was asked about her "real mom". It brought out a side in me that wanted to immediately educate people on adoption or suggest they go back to kindergarten and learn basic manners. I write from my heart and from personal experience. I'm passionate about adoption. I'm blessed everyday to be called "momma". I am a woman of faith. I am loved by my heavenly Father unconditionally. He knows my failures, my achievements, my true motives, my insecurities... and He still loves me. Who could ask for more? If you'd like to know where I've worked and what I've done you can connect with me on LinkedIn.
