A New Person

Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
II Corinthians 5:17 (NLT)

We are a new person in Christ. But how much do we really know about this “new person” that we have become? The authors of “Truefaced” make this point, “If we do not start with ‘trusting who God says we are,’ we will end up trusting in our own resources to try to please God.” The fact is, in Christ, we are sons and daughters of God. We are joint-heirs with Christ. We are a temple of His Holy Spirit. We are a “saint” and created by God to do His good works. We are a disciple of Jesus Christ and a citizen of heaven seated with Christ in heavenly places. We have been chosen by God to be part of His chosen race, a royal priesthood, a people of God. In Christ, we are Holy and dearly loved, free from condemnation for the things we have done. We are unconditionally loved and have been completely forgiven and made righteous. We have been established, anointed, and sealed by God in Christ. Today, make these truths more than words. Let them sink deep into your heart. Believe that you are a new person in Christ, the old life is gone, and a new life has begun.

Father, I thank You for making me a new person in You. Help me know what this means and to live it out in my everyday life.
