PostSubject: A New Creation   Sat Dec 12, 2015 12:42 pm

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 2 Corinthians 5:17-18

Paul, once a persecutor of Christians, started over 180 churches. Matthew, a dishonest tax collector, became one of Jesus’ personally chosen disciples. Mary Magdalene, possessed by seven demons, loved Jesus so fully that she anointed Him with her most prized perfume. Peter, a crude fisherman when Jesus called him to be His disciple, struggled with his own fleshly desires throughout Jesus' three year ministry, to the point of denying he knew Jesus after His arrest...three times before the cock crowed. Yet it was Peter that Jesus built His church on. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. Matthew 16:18. Abraham’s family worshiped heathen gods, yet God chose him to be the father of the great nation; Israel and Moses, a murderer, delivered the Israelites; God’s chosen people, out of bondage in Egypt.

Were their lives so different from ours? Some of us have seen the inside of a jail, verbally and/or physically abused our spouses, lived immorally, cheated and/or stolen from others, continually have lied and deceived others. Maybe we have even murdered but that doesn't even exempt us from experiencing God’s perfect grace and mercy. When we come to Christ, we become “a new creation; the old has gone; the new has come!” We are no longer what we used to be! Because of this wonderful truth, we too can accomplish great things for God’s kingdom regardless of our jaded past. In God’s eyes, the slate is wiped clean.

Insight: If God can take these tarnished lives and make them brand new, just imagine what He can accomplish through you. All He needs is a willing participant.

Dear Lord, Please show me the way to become a willing participant of Your grace and mercy. I want to become a new creation in Christ. I want my old sinful behaviors to pass away and all things to become new. In Jesus' Name, Amen

Amazing how we fall so short of the grace and magnificence of god yet he is so willing to bestow it upon us. Thanks be to the Lord, Amen.

Interesting in that not only did he make these people new again, he had a job in mind for each of them....he didn't make them new to continue doing bad things. This was life changing for these people.

Great insight guys...

Know Jesus, know change

No Jesus...no change.

If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! Matthew 7:11
