Ephesians 5:17-20 (New International Version)
17Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is. 18Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit. 19Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, 20always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 5:17 (King James Version)
17Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
Being a "new creation" is about being thankful. Your gratitude is looking forward in faith, not backward in regret or resentment. "...old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." For many today, being thankful will require some faith. God is faithful!
