Of course, being a new creation does not mean that we are perfect or have it all together. We are still human beings in need of grace and forgiveness on a regular basis. In Psalm 51:10, David cries out to the Lord saying, "Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me." We, too, can can cry out to the Lord for a FRESH heart and a right spirit.

God gives us grace and mercy for a FRESH start each day. Lamentations 3:22-23 tells us that, "Through the Lord's mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness."

So many things change, but the Lord's mercies and His goodness and His grace remain the same. Hebrews 11:8 reminds us, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever."

Isn't it wonderful to know that we can receive FRESH grace and mercy and forgiveness from a Lord who never changes?
