The New is Here

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
— 2 Corinthians 5:17

By Nina Roach

It is jaw-dropping to me when I think of what believers have obtained from their spiritual rebirth through Christ Jesus. Only by the will of God could He create such a feat to make us new.

Our new creation is completely new. Once new, always new! God never intended to just clean up the acts of our "old" nature—self-reliance, works of the flesh, the pride of life, sin, and insincere motives. He created by His power and for His glory something beautiful in each one of us that is to be discovered, revered and put on daily—the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.

Behold your new nature today...

United in Christ, you have grace before the world was created, you are inseparable from God's love, all of your sins are forgiven, you have a seat in the heavenly places, God's peace guards your heart and mind, and everything you will ever need has already been provided for you.

Aren't you glad that you have been made a new creation with so many great benefits? Never lose sight or disconnect in your new position in Christ when you are faced with opposition. Rise up! The new is here.

Decree It: In Christ I am inseparable from God's love and being sanctified and made holy. United in Christ I have everlasting life, joy and the peace of God that guards my heart and mind
