    A NEW CREATURE WITH A NEW LIFE

    A NEW CREATURE WITH A NEW LIFE
    Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a 
    new creature: old things are passed away; 
    behold, all things are become new 
    (2 Corinthians 5:17).

    When you were born again, you were born 
    and baptized into Christ. 1 Corinthians 
    12:13 says, “For by one Spirit are we all baptized 
    into one body…”; you were baptized into the body of 
    Christ, a new man, a new creature with a new life. The 
    King James Version uses the word “creature,” which is 
    a lot more accurate than the word “creation” as used in 
    some other translations. Being a “new creature” means 
    you’re one of a kind; a special or peculiar being. 
    But that’s not all; the latter part of our opening 
    scripture says, “…old things are passed away; behold, 
    all things are become new.”  The underlined word, 
    “behold” means a lot, even though not so many pay 
    attention to its importance in that verse. It’s a word 
    that calls your attention to a truth: God wants you to 
    SEE that all things have become new. When you’re 
    born again, you have a new life; you’re a new being; 
    the old life and nature are supplanted by God’s divine 
    nature. 
    It wasn’t just a mere change that took place in you 
    when you were born again; it was an actual recreation 
    of your human spirit; there was an actual replacement 
    of the life of which you were born of your parents, 
    with the indestructible life of God. You’ve come alive 
    to God through the New Birth. 
    You’re not someone who has merely become 
    religious; you’re a new person, with a new life,  without 
    a past. Understand when the Bible says, “…old things 
    are passed away...”; it’s talking about the old nature 
    that was subject to sin, defeat, sickness, failure and 
    death— it’s dead and gone. All things have become 
    new, and all these new things are of God (2 Corinthians 
    5:18). 
    Everything about your life now carries divinity in it. 
    There’s no connection between you and your “past,” 
    because in actual fact, there’s no past: “Therefore we 
    are buried with him by baptism into death: that like 
    as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of 
    the Father, even so we also should walk in newness 
    of life”  (Romans 6:4). 
    CONFESSION
    I’m a new creature, a brand new species of being. 
    I’m not ordinary. I’m the first and the best of God’s 
    creatures. I prosper in all I do. My life is an expression 
    of the beauty, glory, and grace of Almighty God.
    His righteousness is revealed in, and through me. 
    Hallelujah!
