A New Creation

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

2 Corinthians 5:17. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

We are born or created anew, in the image of God, when we accept His Son, Jesus, into our hearts, minds and lives. The question is are we different from what we were before this acceptance? Do we act and think and live like a new creation? Has our old way of thinking and doing really passed away? The power to change is given us by God’s Holy Spirit now living in us and wanting to live through us. The power is there instantly but the changes come slowly. We must study the Bible to learn how our new creation is to think, act and live differently from the way we were before Jesus entered our lives. Each day we should be a little changed from the day before. Let us seek to learn, grow and be continually changed from earthly things to the heavenly.
