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).
monday 30
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!
