If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
Beloved Brothers and Sisters in Christ! Wishing you all the joy, happiness, love, peace, great health and abundance of wealth in this New Year and ahead!
Certainly, the above subject verse (2 Corinthians 5:17) is a great revelation for us. We all love to have new things in our lives. Surely, we feel great and happy during the festive seasons, wearing new clothes and exchanging gifts with others. How wonderful it is to know that we are blessed the most when in Christ? The joy and happiness we derive is matchless. For we become a New Creation when we are in Christ. Truly, as the scripture says, the old life has gone and a new life has begun! There is no need for us to cling on to those old habits or old lives. We rather be brand new; not by our own strength, but by our Lord Jesus Christ’s!
As our Lord’s promise from the book of Ezekiel 36:26, let us seek Him a new heart and spirit. He is kind enough to remove the heart of stone and replace it with a heart of flesh.
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.Ezekiel 36:26
Therefore brethren, let us seek to be a new creation in Christ. Let us seek to be in the likeness of our Lord and live for the glory of the living God. As the Scriptures says, let our lives be new, in accordance with the truth that is in Lord Jesus Christ and imbibe His righteousness and holiness. Amen.
