A Recreation of You

2 Corinthians 5:17(NIV)

17Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!

Your creation in Christ Jesus is a re-creation of you. Part of being a new creation means getting rid of the old—especially the “bad tapes” of past sins, inabilities, deficiencies, and inferiority that replay over and over in our minds. It was not until I was an adult that I realized my admiration of certain people was misplaced. I did not admire them for who they were in Christ. They intimidated me because of their position in the community. God wanted to renew my perspective with the truth about my identity in Him. I began to tell myself, “I am a new creation, a child of God. Jesus has prepared a home for me in my heavenly Father’s mansion. One day, I will enjoy the company of angels and saints! I am somebody in Christ.”

In recognizing that you are a new creation, you must also face up to the fact that Christ does the recreating. It’s His work. When feelings of inferiority surface, say to the Lord, “Whatever potential I have, God, I trust You to bring it to fullness. I’ll work hard at whatever job You give me. But as of today, I give up striving for perfection in my own strength.”

Prayer
Father help me to recognize that I am a re-creation in Christ Jesus. Help me to face the fact that this is done by the work of your hands, not mine. In Jesus' name. Amen.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Jesus is our perfection and we should strive to be perfect in heart toward him as was Job. Paul tells us that he died daily and that we must crucify the lusts of our flesh. It is not our own strength which allows us to be able to do these things, but it is the strength of our heavenly Father. He continues to work on me and will as long as I live here on this earth. Thank you for this piece.
