Hi, my name is John Beckett. Have you ever seen one of those “before” and “after” pictures? I’m thinking of a home that gets restored after a severe storm comes through, or a piece of furniture that gets beautifully restored. Well, that same contrast can exist in our spiritual lives. I know for myself that before I came to Christ, I was empty. I knew something was missing. But when I came to Christ - after - everything changed. And there’s a verse in the Bible that describes this beautifully. It says if anyone is in Christ, that person is a new creation - old things pass away, and everything becomes new. What a beautiful image. This can apply to you, too. In fact, in coming to Christ, you can become the person that you’re designed to be.
