NKJV 2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
This new year gives us an opportunity to take a fresh start. We need to understand who we are now in Christ. We are no longer who we used to be but are now a new creation. God has forgiven our sins and our past is behind us. There are greater things a head.
Many times we get stuck in the old mentality or the “Egypt” mentality like in the time of Moses. We don’t want to leave the comfortable or the familiar. We don’t want change. God wants to make us a new creation. This means that we are being transformed into someone new.
The only way to understand our new identity in Christ is if we seek God’s word and allow the Holy Spirit to reveal who we are in Christ. How do you know Christ? It is through God’s word and the Holy Spirit. We weren’t there at the time that Jesus Christ was around. We didn’t see him through our physical eyes. Likewise we don’t see our new creation with our physical eyes but we can see the new creation that we are through the Spirit and through the Word.
Seek God this year like never before and recognize who you are now in Christ. We have access to so many things and many times we don’t even know. As we receive revelation from the Holy Spirit we will realize the blessing, authority, and all the things we have access to now that we are a new creation in Christ.
