Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.2 Corinthians 5:17
New in Christ
When someone comes to know Christ, they are a new creation. Just as Jesus died and was buried in death, so the believer’s old life is forgotten, buried in the ground. They no longer have to live in the midst of their sins any longer.
Just as Christ rose from the dead three days later, the believer is risen to new life. Their old life is gone away. Their sins are gone and they’ve been made clean. Christ’s death was a picture of the regeneration that takes place in the believer’s heart and life. They now can walk in their new life free of sin.
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for giving me new life. May I always walk in that new life. Amen.
