As dawn begins, each day can begin with hope. Hope that we will be a little better, a little more Christlike. As we strive to emulate Christ we must make daily concerted effort. Affirmations can help us as we transform.
In 2 Corinthians 5:17 Paul states, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
As we begin to define ourselves we will become a new person in Christ. In the Sermon on the Mount, the Savior defines many characteristics that we need to make our own.
