Often when we seek to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” (2 Peter 3:18) we unintentionally hinder our growth by not understanding Christ’s transformation. In reading the words of Paul, we are told all things have become new. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17) But how are we to understand this when it comes to our growth in Christ? Often I think Christians approach their new life in Christ as not so different than the old life we left behind.
