II Corinthians 5:17

…If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are past away; behold, all things are become new.

The central theme for this month's devotional is Christian Maturity; we begin by looking at becoming a new creature in Christ. Believers become new creatures in Christ by accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. In doing so believers belongs to God as believers have been bought with the precious blood of Jesus Christ and is under the control of God through the indwelling Holy Spirit.

Believers become new creatures in Christ by taking on the image of God to share in His glory (3:18) as well as gaining new knowledge of God and His righteousness. This includes knowing and doing His will. Becoming a new creature in Christ, believers have the ability and desire to live holy lives unto God the Father.

God called believers out of darkness through the atoning work of Christ for a special purpose which is to be His workmanship (Ephesians 2:10), to witness Christ the world over thus building His kingdom (Matthew 28:19-20) and to live faithful lives so the world will see Christ manifested in us.

Being a new creature in Christ the believer have put away the old sinful nature and put on the righteousness of Christ as His atoning work sanctified, justified us before God the Father. Being a new creature in Christ, believers died to sin with Christ and rose with Him to a new life and now have on the righteousness of God the Father.

Out of Christ we remain in the old nature, but in Christ we are new creatures.
