2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
The first three words in the definition of new is “Not existing before” If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. If we fully understand this verse the sins that once ruled over us can fully be conquered thru this truth. The fact that we are a new creation is the key. The relationship you once had with sin is impossible to keep in Christ because if we fully embrace this truth of being a new creation the sins of our past should no longer recognize us. So if you’re struggling with a sin then here’s a great verse to remind yourself of.
You’re a new creation (Not existing before) God is saying I don’t care what it is! the old is gone! the new has come! Don’t let old sin beat you down, or new sin make you give up, ask for that newness in Christ as much as it takes because that new creation in Christ is where you’ll experience the blessings and purpose you were born to discover.
