As believers, we are God’s children. A child of God will reflect His character. Each week, we focus on one scripture while highlighting a declaration (Who God is) and affirmation (Who we are as believers).
This week’s scripture is:
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV
God is the creator.
I am a new creature through Jesus Christ.
When we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we become “new creatures”. God forgives our sins and gifts us with the Holy Spirit. He takes the remnants of our sin and uses them to show the power of His grace. The newness is evident in how we live our lives moving forward. Our future in Christ is illuminated with God-given purpose.
A Prayer Starter…
Heavenly Father, I praise you for the gift of your son and the forgiving of sins. Thank you for making me a new creature in Jesus Christ. Use my life as a testament to the power of Your grace and goodness. Let the change in me cause others to draw closer to You, God, our creator…. Amen.
