Replace 2 Oct 2019
A friend owned a nice lamp with broken electronics. It was impossible for me to repair the electronics. So I decided to replace the old (unusual) CCFL lamp by LED's (see picture). The repair went reasonable and now the nice lamp has a new life. Similarly, in Christ my old self will be replaced by a brand new self.
2 Cor 5:16-19 In Christ you are NEW.
16 From now onwards, then, we will not consider anyone by human standards: even if we were once familiar with Christ according to human standards, we do not know him in that way any longer.
17 So for anyone who is in Christ, there is a new creation: the old order is gone and a new being is there to see.
18 It is all God's work; he reconciled us to himself through Christ and he gave us the ministry of reconciliation.
19 I mean, God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself, not holding anyone's faults against them, but entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.
The old (white) and the new parts.
