NEW IN CHRIST!
Updated: Jan 9
"Therefore if anyone is in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], he is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life]." (II Corinthians 5:17 AMPC)
And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” And then he said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.” (Revelation 21:5 NLT)
We are NEW! As we celebrate a New Year what a timely reminder that we are not the same. We are brand NEW in Him!
"For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago." (Ephesians 2:10 NLT)
Declare this over yourself and walk in it:
I am unique!
I am strong!
I am beautiful! Or I am handsome!
You have blessed me with a unique plan and purpose!
I am Your masterpiece!
Abba Father, let me not forget who I am or my heritage as Your child.
Thank You Abba Father for creating me in Your image. I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Thank You that I am honored and precious in Your sight. Hallelujah I am redeemed and forgiven! I am a new creature in Christ, the old has passed away. I’m not that person anymore. Before You I am holy and blameless. I am chosen by You. Even if no one else wants me or chooses me, You wanted me, planned for me, and chose me. I am Your masterpiece, a work of art, treasured beyond measure. Thank you for creating me with purpose to do great works for Your Kingdom.
