2 CORINTHIANS 5:17 AMP: 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].
My dear friends in Christ, having confessed Jesus as your lord and savior, you are now created anew. The new you never existed. The word of God didn’t say refurbished; rather brand new.
What this means is that you now have a new identity, a new life, you are now in Him. The old you is gone. This transformation is greater than what happened when you were born by your mother.
You are now God’s friend. God is no longer angry with you because of what Christ did for you. You were a sinner, but now Christ has paid for your sins and took it away. So you need to now study your new identity, your rights and inheritance which can only be found in the word of God.
So be grateful to God today for giving you a new life that is victorious all the time.
Declare to yourself loud: I am a new creature in Christ. Halleluja
Dear Lord, thank you for giving me a new life. Help me to understand and walk in the light of my new identity in Christ. In Jesus name. Amen.
