November 21: A New Creature in Christ

2 Corinthians 5:17

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

Ephesians 4:24.

“And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.”

Our anchor Scripture tells us that if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things have become new. This is a scripture that almost every Christian can quote, but not everyone in Christ has come to terms with it yet. But on this scripture hinges our effectiveness as Christians, because it is the hub of our new identity in Christ. Being a new creature simply means someone with new possibilities, new realities, new capacity or potential; a brand new being. Who you are or your identity, determines your potential. For example, an animal cannot act like a human, owing to the fact that it does not have the potential or ability of man. If any man be in Christ, he is a new being or creature with a new kind of potential, superior to that of the natural man. The man in Christ has new capacity to act and do things according to his new nature. Now, you can function according to the capacity of the Word of God which sourced you. 1 Peter 1:23 tells us that we are born again, not of the corruptible seed, but of the incorruptible seed of the Word of God which lives and abides forever. We are born of the Word, and we have the life of the Word of God. We have the chromosome of the Word running in us. The very life of God which is in and of the Word runs in us. We are a kind of firstfruits of His creature. We are children of God with the divine capacity to fellowship with God, and fully exemplify the divine life in earthly realms.

We are born of the Word of God. There is no impossibility with the Word of God. There is no impossibility with you, for all things are possible to the believing one. We are of faith, and we have overcome the world, for greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world. Ephesians 4:24 tells us that we are born again of the God-kind in righteousness and true holiness. It is in us to live holy; it is of our new nature in Christ to walk in godliness. Though we are in this world, we are not of this world. We are rulers and kings over the earth realm in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. We have authority to tread upon snakes and scorpions, and over all the powers of the enemy; and nothing shall by any means hurt us. You are invincible in Christ, and more than a conqueror because Christ Jesus loved you, and gave Himself for you, and recreated you in His image. Hallelujah! Amen.

 

My Solid Front (Confession)In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I declare that I am a new creature in Christ Jesus; the old is passed away, and the new has come. I am of the God-kind in nature and potential; therefore I rule and reign in this world by Christ Jesus. Amen.
