Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a 
new creature: old things are passed away; 
behold, all things are become new 
(2 Corinthians 5:17).
sunday 22
The new creation didn’t come from the cross, 
but from the resurrection of Jesus Christ; we’re 
the fruits of His resurrection. When Jesus died, you died 
with Him. When He was buried, you were buried with 
Him. When He resurrected, you also arose with Him 
as a new man, a new species. 
Romans 6:4 says, “Therefore we are buried with 
him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was 
raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, 
even so we also should walk in newness of life.” Your 
new life started with the resurrection of Jesus Christ. 
The old life has been supplanted by this new life, the 
divine life. 
Understand that there’s no connection between 
the new creation and your past. In fact, the so-called 
past doesn’t exist. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says,  “Therefore 
if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old 
things are passed away; behold, all things are become 
new.” Quit judging or appraising yourself on the basis 
of your past. Your past was nailed to the cross. 
In Romans 7:6, the Apostle Paul, stressing 
our disconnection from the past and old nature, 
admonished that we serve God in the newness of 
spirit:  “But now we are delivered from the law, that 
being dead wherein we were held; that we should 
serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of 
the letter.” He also said in Colossians 3:10, “…put on 
the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after 
the image of him that created him.”
Today, what counts with God is that you’re born 
again and are a new creature in Christ Jesus (Galatians 
6:15). You’re now in His class of being; an associate of 
the God-kind; a partaker of the divine nature (2 Peter 
1:4). You’ve been made alive in Christ. All these are as a 
result of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Hallelujah!
Blessed be God! I have the incorruptible life of Christ 
in my spirit. I’m an associate of the God-kind, reigning 
in life by grace through righteousness. I walk in the 
reality of the new life of righteousness, which I’ve 
received in Christ. I’m more than a conqueror; I live 
in dominion over Satan and the world! Hallelujah! 
Isaiah 43:18-19; James 1:18; Luke 20:35
