A new creation!
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation;
2 Cor 5 17-21
A new species of being, with God’s nature!
However, looking at our lives,
… this seems to be little more than a promise!
So what hinders us from truly being this new creation?
To them God willed to make known what are the riches
of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles:
which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
Colossians 1 27
There is something we obviously need to do…
Christ in you is the potential – (where He is)
… the hope of His glory in us.
You in Christ is the reality – (where you are)
… is where that potential is released in you.
If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you,
you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
John 15 7
Being a New Creation is about living in Him, with Him and for Him,
… and not about where I go He goes – but where He goes I go!
It is about living and acting according to His personal instruction to you.
… and you no longer living for yourself, but living for Him, in Him!
As you allow Him to take control,
… is when that glory that He is
… becomes real in you!
And as you take your place in Him,
… is when His glory will envelop you!
All we need do is to start living who we are in Him!
