Remember the days when buying something new meant getting something virtually flawless. Whatever it was, the expectation was that it have no scratches, no dents, no snags or flaws; it would look brand new, not like someone else’s hand-me-downs. Things have changed, haven’t they? The distressed look is the new new (let that sink in for a second). We buy furniture with marks in the design, t-shirts that are faded, jeans with holes in them, and hair cuts that are sloppy. What’s next, underwear with stains already in them? In all seriousness though, distressed is in.
That’s good news for sinners like myself. It’s for our flaws that God gave a new covenant which involved His son being distressed so that we’d be made new. Wow! Christ is the new life. Who ever said the Lord is out of style?
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
~2 Corinthians 5:17~
