NEW BEGINNINGS

January 3, 2017

Tuesday

 

2 Corinthians 5:17

 

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

 

 

LESSON

 

Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection had had another effect besides altering Paul’s viewpoint. Verses 16 and 17 each begin with the same Greek word, hoste: “therefore” or “so.” Whenever a person experiences conversion, as Paul did, he or she really becomes “a new person.” It is not just his or her viewpoint, that should change and can change, but many other things also change. Certain old conditions and relationships no longer exist, and others take their place and continue.

 

Obviously there is both continuity and discontinuity that takes place at conversion (justification).

 

Are you a new creation? I am not asking if you have been baptized , are you a new creation?

 

Memory Verse: Genesis 1:1

 

The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.
