The New Man In Christ - November 23rd 2023

“...if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV).

 

The new creature in our opening verse, is a new type of man, a mystery to the world. He’s the dream of the Father. Being born again, you’re not like anything the world has seen before. You’re the first and the best of everything that God made (James 1:18). You’re top-class, superior to Satan.


The new man in Christ is the temple of the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 3:16 says, “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” Now that the Holy Spirit has taken up His abode in you, your physical body is no longer subject to decay, decadence and corrupting influences of this world.


Death, sickness, disease and everything of darkness can’t, and shouldn’t, reign in your physical body, because your human life was supplanted by God’s divine life. You live by the Spirit now, not by blood: “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” (John 1:12-13). This is the amazing life of the new man in Christ!


2 Corinthians 6:16 says, “...for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them....” God’s dream from the foundation of the world is fulfilled in the new man in Christ. The mystery that was hidden from ages and generations has now been made manifest, and fulfilled in us. That mystery is Christ in you, the hope of glory (Colossians 1:26-27). Hallelujah! What does this mean to you even now? It means you ought to walk in the fullness of the blessings of the Gospel of Christ. You received the fullness of God’s blessing when you received Christ.


PRAYER/CONFESSION

"The creator of all things lives in me in His fullness; I’m a carrier and sharer of His life and glory. I’m conscious of my divine nature and heritage, and I manifest the Christ-life in me to my world by the power of the Spirit, to influence men and women in righteousness, in Jesus’ Name. Amen."
