TEXT: 2 Corinthians 5:17 - Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: the old has gone, the new is here!
When was the last time you broke something that you really liked? When I broke my tea cup I cried. It wasn't a normal tea cup. It was a beautiful, pale green tea steeper with Asian letters, around the sides. I brought it back from a visit to South Korea. I never drank out of it; I kept it on a shelf for decoration. When I accidently knocked it off the shelf one night, it broke into pieces. I tried to fix it. I thought that maybe with a little glue it would look like new. Nope. Even when I got it to hold together, it still looked cracked. It would never look new again, it would always be broken.
