WE’RE NEW CREATIONS

WE’RE NEW CREATIONS

2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV) Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

We are new creations in Christ.  We are not going to be, in the sweet by and by.  We are today!  When Jesus died on the cross of Calvary, He opened the door for everyone in the human race to become, as one translation puts it, “a new species of being that never existed before.”

Think about that for a moment.  Before Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead, there was no one who was a new creation, but once He did, it became available to every person that would believe on His work, and receive Him as their personal Lord and Savior.

The Scripture goes on to say in Galatians 6:15, “For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but a new creation.”

To God, all He requires of us is to receive the gift of His Son and become new in His sight.  This puts you in the family.  This gives you Zoe: His eternal Life.  So if you have not received this gift, do it now!  I will help you by writing the prayer out for you, but you need to pray it with your mouth and believe it in your heart.  Once you do that, you are a new creation; you are a new species of being that never existed before.  Your body and your mind will not be changed, but your heart will. You will be born-again.  You will have received eternal life, or the Life of God.  So go ahead, pray this prayer, and then let me know you did.

Confession: Heavenly Father, I believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that he died on the cross for me.  Father, I repent of my sins and ask you, Lord Jesus, to come into my heart and be my personal Lord and Savior.  I believe that I am born again, and I have received the Life of God in me.  Amen. 

(If you just prayed that prayer for the first time, please give us a call so we can help you in your new-found faith.)
