Therefore, if anyone is united with the Messiah, he is a new creation — the old has passed; look, what has come is fresh and new!
Through godly mercy we have the opportunity to build ourselves anew, as we accept the reality that we are a new creation. It takes time to go from newborn to full-grown. Believers should give themselves time to change and to become who they really are. Know that your Fatherly loves you and made a path for you to walk with Him, no matter how much you may stumble. He also built into the world times and seasons for changing and renewing, so that believers, old and new can continually strive towards being who He wants us to be.
