      A New Creature

      2Cor. 5:17 What this means is that those who become Christians become new
      persons. They are not the same anymore, for the old life is gone. A new life
      has begun!  

      Where you really made new when you accepted Christ into your heart? Well,
      this is an ongoing battle in many church circles because many believe that
      when you are made new you are made spiritually new and it’s only manifested
      in the spirit realm. But I don’t agree with that. I do not believe the
      scripture “If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things are
      passed away and behold all things become new” is just talking about the
      spirit realm. I believe when you accept Christ, you should change. There
      should be a new found desire to find out what God wants and expects of you.
      There should be a desire to find the will of God for you and not do the same
      old sinful things you did before Christ! Why would a person accept Christ
      and not want to live for him? You can’t accept him and not want to live for
      him. Yes, we do make mistakes and we do sin after our new birth. But to always
      desire to do the wrong thing more than the right thing suggests that there
      is something internally wrong with your new birth. Not to blame Christ, but
      to search into yourself and see if there are areas in your life that are
      unconfessed to God or unsurrendered to him.  

      You see, becoming a new creature was instantaneous, but practicing righteousness  

      is a process. We know that when a person accepts Christ, there is a process to
      learn, live,
      and behave according to the word, but there must be a desire to read the word
      before a
      person will ever live according to the word! Come on people, wake up! If you
      are not desiring the word, desiring to hear from God, desiring to live for
      God, then you do not want God!!!! God is not a flavor of cologne that you
      can spray on whenever you want to smell good. If you are of God, you are a
      new creature! If you are still desiring sinful things and always looking for
      ways to do the fool, then you are not of him. Mistakes, we all make. But
      your utmost desire should be to live according to the word of God if you are
      his. If old things are passed away, then why are they all still there? If
      all things became new, then why are your old ways still ruling you! Are you
      a new creature?  

      Suggested Reading: 2Tim. 3:5, Rom. 8:1, Rom. 8:13, 2Pet. 2:10
