Out With the Old

By Linda Tancs

Remember the old expression, “Out with the old, in with the new.” We’re used to shedding old things. We give old clothes away to make room for new ones. We shed old habits and (hopefully) develop new, better ones. We buy newer cars. The same concept applies in the spiritual realm. As Jesus said, you don’t pour new wine into old wineskins (Mark 2:22). Indeed, there is nothing in our old nature worth salvaging once we become new creations in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17). Use the advent of a new year to renew yourself!
