The New Creation in Christ


2 Corinthians 5:17 states “Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is NEW CREATION; the old things have passed away; behold, new things have come.”

If you have become born again through enterring the blood covenant made available to us through the sacrificial death of Jesus on the cross then you are “in Him”.

Romans 6:4 declares to us “Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, in order that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life (zoe).”

If you have been born again and baptized in water the scriptures declare to us that we are new creations because we now have (“ZOE”) the life of God within us.  Can you even fathom that in your mind and heart.  You are now the same old person you were before your salvation experience.  You are just like Jesus was when He walked the earth – you have the life of the Father by the Holy Spirit within you.  That makes you capable of living your life just like Jesus did.  CAN YOU MEDITATE UPON THAT THOUGHT AND ALLOW IT TO PENETRATE DEEP WITHIN YOU?

Friends, we live so far below what God intends for our lives here on earth.

Matthew 6:10 – “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”  You are His children and His ambassadors upon this earth to bring heaven to earth and to be instrumental in bringing His will to pass ON THIS EARTH.

Are we doing our jobs, or just waiting for the great escape to occur?

Think about it!
