“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.” How true is that? 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 God’s workmanship created to do God’s good works. We are a disciple of Jesus Christ and at the same time a citizen of heaven seated with Christ in heavenly places. We have been chosen by God to be His very own. When we were born again we became a member of a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a people of God. In fact, in Christ, we are Holy and dearly loved, free from condemnation for the things we have done. In fact we are unconditionally loved and have been completely forgiven and made righteous. We have been established, anointed and sealed by God in Christ and have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in Christ. Today, let these truths sink deep into your heart. 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 more of what this really means and to live it out in my everyday life.
