In Christ, believers are completely new!
2 Corinthians 5 ” 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! “
Those who don’t believe in Jesus are old creations.
When we believe in Jesus, we are new creations.
– The old creation is a sinner, dead in sin.
– The new creation is sinless and righteous because God has given us His righteousness.
How did that happen?
2 Corinthians 5 “18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ…..not counting people’s sins against them”
God announced the Gospel : good news of salvation.
2 Corinthians 5 ” 21 God made JESUS who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Christ we might become the righteousness of God.”
Jesus died for our sins on the cross.
He rose from the dead after removing our sins.
When we believe in Jesus, we became the Righteousness of God.
The believer is a NEW CREATION in CHRIST.
We are sinless……We cannot sin.
We are perfectly righteous, holy, blameless, faultless, flawless.
It is because Christ lives in us.
We are forgiven all sins and ALIVE as NEW Creations in Christ.
We have no sin, we cannot sin.
It is impossible for us to sin because we are born of God.
We are Sons of God.
God has given us All His Glory.
God has given us EVERY spiritual blessing.
God has given us EVERYTHING He has.
He has given us Himself…
therefore we are sinless and perfect as Christ is living in us!
Sin has gone, old things are gone.
Behold ALL things are new…we are sinless and righteous in Christ by faith and not our works!
We boast in Jesus who is our righteousness!
