2 Cor 5:17 “17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
Context: This follows verse 16 which is in reference to how we judge things. See people look and the height and body of things and God looks at the heart and belief.
“If any-man be in Christ”
Any Man= Everyone!
God loves and invites EVERYONE to be in Christ!
John 3:16 “16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
God loves the world!
Jesus died for EVERYONE!
2 Cor 5:14 “14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:”
The place everyone is invited to be? IN CHRIST!
Since Jesus died for all, all are invited to be in Christ!
How is one in Christ?
Galatians 3:26-28 “26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”
“Old things are passed away”
Jesus not only makes things new! He get rid of the old!
Passed away= Gone!
The old is dead!
Romans 6:6 “6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.”
Since it’s dead it has no power anymore! It’s dead and gone
Sin, lusts, issues, desires!
“he is a new creature” “all things are become new.”
Being in Christ not only allows us forgiveness and gets rid of old things! He makes new!
Jesus totally changes everything!
He makes us NEW
A new creature
New desires new appetites
Matt 6:33 “33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
All things new!
New life that we are to live!
Eph 4:22-24 “22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.”
If were are new creatures and the old us is dead all in Christ. Everything should be different in life.
Are we living like the creatures God has made us to be?
