Rhett Walker – “Make Me New” (Devotional)

ΓÇ£Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!ΓÇ¥

2 Cor. 5:17

I have been doing music for a good while now. My career kicked off by playing music at my DadΓÇÖs church on Sundays. I loved leading worship, and loved getting to be a part of that time with other brothers and sisters every week. It seems just like yesterday that I was starting off on this musical journey, but I am nowhere close to the musician, the artist, or the man that I used to be. I have grown a bit more, I have lived a little more, learned hard lessons. 

See, when I first started doing music and leading worship at churches all over the Southeast, it was great and exactly what I was supposed to be doing.

As I continued to grow in my faith, I felt my path was to head out and tell my story of what Christ had done in my life. How God had taken a kid, hell bent on living life his own way and made him into a new creation. 

What I was experiencing was growth. Me as a new creation, blooming into what I was made to do and following what He had called me to do. So I did just that. I started chasing whatever God had for me which ended up leading me to Nashville, where I now live with my family with an album full of these stories. 

The funny thing to me though, is that Christ didnΓÇÖt stop after I surrendered. He is continuously making me new. He is continuing to add and take away, to shape and mold me into what He wants. I think that is how life is though. If you are not continuing to shape and grow, you are dead.
