We are new in Christ

May 24th, 2013

One of the first memory verses I remember is 2 Corinthians 5:17. It says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”

As a new Christian back in 1989, and even today, I love the fact that we are completely changed on the inside the moment we come to Christ.

The Bible tells us in Titus 3:5 that, “…He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit.” We are washed internally and have been born again.

We are completely new. We are not reformed, we are not rehabilitated, we are not re-educated – we ARE re-created in Christ. The old really IS swepted away!

I really love facing life knowing that I am completely new on the inside. I love knowing that the creator of the universe re-made me. I love that He turned me back to His original blueprints for me.

I also love that it was a work that He has done. It is not done by human effort, it is ALL His work. It is done completely and perfectly. It is finished.

If you are in Christ, you ARE a new creation!

God Bless,
Dave
