"Therefore... if anyone is in Christ - he is a NEW creation; the Old has gone - the NEW has come!" (2 Corinthians 5:17) -- Your Old IDENTITY is gone and your New IDENTITY is eternal – this is HOW you can begin to CHANGE your IDENTITY! Understanding that YOU have no real part in that CHANGE! It’s because of WHAT CHRIST has done IN YOU that enables YOU to MAKE THAT CHANGE! The ability to then… be LIKE CHRIST – living up to His standards!
Have you ever seen a Hearse pulling a U-Haul? Didn't think so. You know why? After fantastic careers - plush 401k's & secure retirements... it ALL goes back in the box! No more game cards. No more tokens. No more promotions, no more financial planning, no more RV's and vacation homes. GAME OVER. What did you WIN that you get to keep? That's the ECONOMY of God, unusual for sure. Some may actually call it... FREAKONOMIC$!
