You Are A New Creation
“Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:16-17 (NKJV)
According to our opening scripture today, if you are born again, stop judging yourself based on the flesh because the Bible says, “But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you.” Romans 8:9
Our opening scripture says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation …” This is because there was an old creation that had the natural human life, but when you come into Christ by being born again, “… old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”
The Amplified Bible puts 2 Corinthians 5:17 this way, “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!”
Therefore as a child of God you are not supposed to still have your old struggles. That is why you have to renew your mind to your new life in Christ.
Dear Father, I ask that You fill me with the knowledge of Your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, so that I may walk worthy of You; fully pleasing to you and fruitful in every good work, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
