Not What Was, But What Is New

18 Aug

Not What Was, But What Is New…

It is written, “If anyone is in Jesus, he is a new creation…” When you come to Jesus, you become new. That’s part of the truth, but not all. It’s not what the Scripture says. The Scripture doesn’t say, “he becomes a new creation.” The Scripture says, “he is a new creation.”

There’s a difference. If you only become new, at one point, as when you first come to the Lord, then you might stop being new after a while, and start getting old in Jesus, which is what most believers do. They lose that excitement, that…newness.

Rather it says, “If anyone is in Jesus, he IS a new creation.” That means you ARE a new creation all the time. It’s the present tense. You read that Scripture right now. So right now…you ARE a new creation.

The power of God never gets old. The New Covenant never stops being new. Live as if salvation were new to you. Live as if you just got filled with God. Live as if you just became new, and you will be. For if anyone be in Jesus, he IS a new creation, and that’s good news!

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

Think about it – just as when you first got saved yesterday – today, you ARE just as much a new creation. Walk in the newness of life.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
