Get New Life Today!
So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
2 Corinthians 5:16-17
Thank You for our new life in Christ Jesus. We died with Christ so that we can also live with Him. Give each of us a deeper revelation of this knowledge. Get it deep in our hearts so in times of darkness we can pull it out and rejoice.
We are new creations!
We are no longer of Adam’s race. Christ Jesus is our new race and bloodline. No longer slaves but free in Jesus. Thank You for Jesus.
Give us the power and grace to look at others through heavenly eyes and not worldly eyes. Help us to not see things from the worldly point of view. We thank You for taking us deeper into who You created us to be. Thank You for conforming us more and more to be like Jesus.
In His name we pray.
Today’s Transformation Tip
5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. 6 For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with,[a] that we should no longer be slaves to sin— 7 because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.
8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.
Paul tells us that we were crucified with Jesus ~ past tense. Our old sin nature was crucified with Him so that we can be resurrected with him in new life. This new life is a new creation. We are no longer of Adam’s lineage but we are in the lineage of Jesus Christ.
We have been set free in Christ.
Our bondage and ties to the law have been severed when Christ died on the cross. He did for us what man had been unable to do for centuries ~ since the Garden of Eden. He kicked sin to the curb.
We are called to share this new life with others. It no longer controls us and this is such freeing news we cannot keep it to ourselves. It must be shared! We are given new life to live for Christ. It is the most precious gift of all.
And this new life doesn’t start when we die and go to heaven. It starts the minute we accept Jesus Christ into our hearts!!
Stay in the Light and Love always,
