From now on, therefore, we regard no one from a human point of view; even though we once knew Christ from a human point of view, we know him no longer in that way. So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us. So we are ambassadors for Christ, since God is making his appeal through us; we entreat you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:16-21, NRSV)

Have you ever been in a new car? And there is that new car smell…

They have even tried to recreate that smell in air fresheners, so you can live that moment of the new car smell…

There is something about things being new.

New shoes just seem to walk better…

New pens write smoother…

New houses are cleaner (well that’s because they haven’t been lived in yet!)

New cars feel better…

And a new life would be great! Well we all have a new life, every day! If we are in Christ and He is in us, then every day is a new creation! The old has gone and the new life in Christ has come!

Every day is a new day smell!

So live in the new and help everyone to see the new life they can have in Christ!
