While listening to the words of this song I was reminded of Bartemaeus in Mark 10:46-52 and the post I wrote only a few days ago (Be of Good Cheer). Bartemaeus called out to Jesus. After Bartemaeus’ conversation with Jesus, from that point on Bart’s life changed. The old was gone and the new came.
2 Corinthians 5:17 comes to my mind also, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”
