You Are New
2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV) –Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
This is one my favorite Scriptures. I grabbed hold of this verse shortly after I was born again in February, 1973. I realized that I was a brand new creature!
Meditate on this verse, because if you don’t understand the truth of what the new birth is, it will keep you from receiving the blessings God has in store for you.
The spiritual nature of man is a fallen nature. Man received an evil nature from Satan when Adam sinned. And no man can change his human nature, But God can!
When you were born again, something happened inside of you – instantaneously! That evil nature went out of you. And the very life and nature of God came into you! God created you a brand new creature – a new creation. The man on the inside – the real you, which is a spirit man – has already become a new man in Christ Jesus.
So don’t look at yourself from the physical point of view. Look at yourself from the spiritual viewpoint. See yourself as a new creature in Christ. That’s how God sees you!
I am a new creature. Old things on the inside of me passed away. All things inside of me became new. I have a new life. I have a new nature. I have the life of God!
God bless you my friend,
