Devotional: A New Creation
Christian Devotion about being a new creation in Christ
"...Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the
Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether);
the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has
passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!..." - 2 Corinthians 5:17 (AMPC)
No more bound to the old life, we have been made new in
Christ Jesus. This is the born again experience. The old
life has passed away, and the new has come. But is it
that easy? Does our old life suddenly disappear when we
accept Christ? In a sense, we do become a new creation when
we come to Christ, for His blood cleanses us from all our
sin. But it is also a process. Though we are a new creature
in Christ, we still have struggles and issues we are working
through. Satan does come up against us, and we have this
battle going on with the flesh and the spirit. It's not an
easy road that we're on, but it is a life-changing journey.
We can celebrate and proclaim that we are a new creation in
Christ. This is something we need to remind ourselves of
when the journey becomes hard.
Though there are times we have battles inside,
We are still new creations in Jesus Christ
