THEME: The New Creature.
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
2 Corinthians 5:17.
2 Corinthians 5:18-19.
“And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.”
An adage in southwestern Nigeria says that; _”Although a child, can have plenty new clothes more than the adults, but cannot have rags like the adults.”_ Dear friend, the truth is that, rags are from the past life, while new things evolve with new season and the time of life. However, before the new ones surface, there are old ones; which is by now no longer fitting, outdated, messed up and invalid through sin. Thus the way we were outside Jesus, while in Jesus, we possess the newness of life in Christ Jesus.
Meanwhile, Apostle Paul reminds us of God’s magnanimous love towards us, for not imputing our trespasses against us, but He reconcile with us in Christ Jesus. Who suffered and bore our sins upon Himself, in exchange for righteousness.
A new creature is God’s handmade, recreated in Jesus with a change in character and conduct. And in the spirit of the Lord, he acts upon new principles, by new rules, with great expectations among new people, a generation birthed with the blood of Jesus Christ.
In conclusion, the old man is done with, Satan and sinfulness are put under the feet of a new creature through the righteousness of Jesus Christ. Beloved, don’t forget that a believer is created anew, his heart is not merely set right, but a new heart is given to him. May God create a new heart in you today in Jesus name. Amen.
God bless you.
Till He returns or call you home, do remain in the power of His love.
*Jesus is coming very soon.*
I am a new creature, transformed, redefined and redeemed through the blood of Lamb.
Father, grant me the grace to remain in righteousness. And create in me a new heart, help me to draw souls out of hell into your heavenly kingdom in Jesus name. Amen.
Yours in Christ,
B. J. Folorunsho.
