Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
This is one of my favourite verses outside the Gospel books of the Bible. It’s speaks of God’s love for us, and the depth of that love. Because I’m so transfixed with His creation, I feel sometimes that my heart and soul will burst with its beauty, so when I read, “if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation” I can’t find enough words to explain how that radiates through me.
How can anyone gaze at the universe through a telescope and believe that it all just happened? How can we comprehend the incredible design of new life, whether that is a chicken, a horse, a whale or a human baby and disbelieve that it’s a miracle in the making? His creation is amazing; and it’s new every morning—just look at a sunrise.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1 NIV) Read it, and the following verses, and see that it “was good”. Take a moment to grasp the beauty and the expression of His love for you and be a new creation in Christ.
