Getting a pedicure gives me something to qualm about. It gives me a sensation of a bit ticklish but more of the painful side. I cringe and anticipate the pain as the pedicurist pushes back the cuticle using a metal pusher. The worst part is when a dead skin or a cuticle is stuck-up in the corner of a toenail and the only option is for the pedicurist to put a pressure as she tries to push out the dead skin or the cuticle. However, what a relief it is when everything is over and done. Much more, it feels good (or even better) when a nail polish is applied.
Much like when we receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we become new. “Therefore if anyone is in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], he is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life].” (2 Corinthians 5:17).
