Live In The New You

“What this means is that those who become Christians become new persons. They are not the same anymore, for the old life is gone. A new life has begun!” – 2 Corinthians 5:17 NLT

You’ve been declared “Not Guilty” by the highest court in the universe. What an amazing promise. And yet there are Christians as hard as they may try just can’t break free of the lie that Satan has placed in their head which is keeping them tied to their past sins and failures.

Listen… when you come to Christ Jesus in faith you become a new creation, old things are passed away all things become new.

On the basis of God’s wonderful word, the Word of God states when God forgives a person, God trusts him a though he had never sinned. That’s right I typed that correctly. God trusts you as you have never sinned. When you come to faith in Jesus Christ the bible says you have been “justified” – which can be translated for our help “just as if you have never sinned.” You’re a new creation. Believe it. Accept it. Live it.

One day a woman caught in adultery was brought before Jesus to be punished ( as the Jewish leaders thought or tested Jesus to see what He would do ) but instead, Jesus said: “I do not condemn go and sin no more.”

The enemy of your soul will continue to bring up your past mistakes but the goodness of God will continue to bless you with clean slates as His mercies are new every morning. It’s really simple the enemy wants you to live in defeat. God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit want you to live in Victory!

When God forgave you He didn’t think to himself …”I better watch this one, he’s done some things in his past that, well. I’m not sure of…He has a record you know.” No, when you called upon Jesus to save you and be your Lord God started with you as though you were just created and as if there had been no past at all.

And every day you begin each day with “New Mercies…” You are a new creation in Christ Jesus, old things are passed away all things become new. All you need to do at this point praise God for His love, grace, and mercy and secondly walk in the newness of life by the power of the Holy Spirit.
