Your New Life

Creation is an act of God. He alone is our Creator. Through the gospel of our Lord Jesus, we become a new creation. That's our new life in Christ. God who gave us life from our mother's womb, now gives us new life in Christ. We are born again by the Spirit of God, through the implanted Word of God in our hearts (James 1:18). Our mind, will, and emotions are changed by the grace of God.

Your new birth makes you a new creation, becoming a new person by grace through faith in Christ. You have a new identity with a new life. Old things pass away. God forgives all your old sins and you start a new life. That's because you are a new creation in Christ."Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new"(2 Corinthians 5:17).

God takes away our sins through the blood of Jesus Christ and gives us the righteousness of Christ (1 John 1:7; 2 Corinthians 5:21).  He has a purpose for your new life, and that purpose is always good."And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose"(Romans 8:28).

Your old life is buried in baptism (Romans 6:4). You are raised by God's grace to new life in Christ. You are not a prisoner to the old things in your past. Trust God to bless and use you as a new creation. Remember, the old things have passed away. Trust God to do good things in your life in the days ahead. That's because you are a new creation, by God's grace.
