THE DYNAMICS OF A NEW CREATION
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things have passed away; behold, all things are become new” 2Corinthians 5:17.
LIGHT FOR THE NOW: God does not live in heaven but He lives in you.
There has been a lot of confusion in the church about who a new man in Christ is. The world has come to see a new man in Christ as an ordinary man because of wrong information. Until we have a deep knowledge of who a born again creature is, we will not be able to function fully in the power of God. A deep understanding of whom a born again creature is can be determined by how you relate with God or how you see God. Born again experience is a called experience. The Holy Spirit lives in a reborn man to lead and guide that life. The moment you receive God into your life, the Holy Spirit begins to live in you. It is the new birth that makes a difference between the old covenant and the new covenant. The most powerful creation of God is the rebirth of man. The rebirth of man is what Satan cannot comprehend. It is a mystery to Satan how God became man and man becomes God. This is what Satan cannot handle. Therefore, a born again child of God is a mystery to Satan. The devil has no right to predict you. As a new creation, you become unpredictable and unstoppable by the devil and his agents.
God does not live in Heaven but He lives in you. 1 Corinthians 6:19 says; “What! Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not you own?” The rebirth of the human spirit makes it possible for us to be filled with the Holy Ghost. You cannot live right until He lives in you. The life you have at new birth is called light because that is your new nature. Your life as a new creation is connected to that light. A born again creature cannot be controlled by the forces of darkness. John 1 vs 4-5 says, “In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shinneth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not”. What brought darkness to man was sin. Therefore, whatever can handle sin can also handle darkness. How fast and how far you go in life is a function of the kind of light you have. A car with a bad light cannot drive fast. A new creation is guided by God because God by nature is light.
INSTRUCTION: Go ahead and prosper.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive grace to connect my life to your light, in Jesus name.
QUOTE:You cannot live right until He lives in you.
