New Creation Memory Verse
In this week’s memory verse, the believer is a new creation.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 2 Corinthians 5:17 ESV
Anyone in Christ
Being ‘in Christ’ summarizes the experience of redemption. It is belief, commitment and becoming like Christ. A change begins, instigated by the Holy Spirit, and could be described as the changes brought about by the return of Spring, after a long hard winter.
1 John 5:12 says whoever has the Son has life…
Romans 6:4 explains that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too may have new life.
The old has passed away
By the work of Jesus Christ and the indwelling Holy Spirit, the person we were in the past, is gone. The new person has come. We have already participated in the passing away of the old and arrival of the new.
Isaiah 43:18 says to forget the things of the past. God is doing a new thing. He is making a way in the wilderness, a river in the desert.
The line from the song, That Was Then, This is Now by Josh Wilson gives a musical visual.Don’t we love to gaze at those old photographs and yearn for the past? While focusing on the old life, we miss the new.
“God ahead, put the past in the past. Box it up like an old photograph”
