Living In the Familiar

2 Corinthians 5:17 say’s Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

What is, it about the familiar we love? Could it be more than just playing it safe? Yes, we can agree that it’s easy to do. In all honesty, we can’t go back to what is familiar. We should move forward. When relationships go bad, we go back to the familiar of when times were easy.

When our careers aren’t working out, we run back to what we use to do. We prepare foods that are familiar to us, don’t we? We rather do that then learn a new meal because it will take more time a preparation.

So, what does this familiar must say about our relationship with Jesus? It means that we are still playing it safe with God. For some of us our faith hasn’t grown at all we still where we were when we first got saved. God tells us to go in one direction and we are all sent and ready to go. But the moment things get a little hard for us the first thing we do is go back to those familiar times.

I totally get the reason as to why we do it. But we can’t live in the familiar, there is so much more to life than that. But if we stay in the familiar, we are cheating ourselves. Look at your life and I bet that you can see just how familiar you are living your life.

Let me show you, for example. We drink the same type of coffee every day, we watch the same television programs. we make the same career moves. We go to bed the same time; we go on the same vacations. Get the point.

Try doing new things each day you might even surprise yourself.
