It says in II Corinthians 5:16-17 that, “So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” As believers of Christ, we are promised a new life. Today Rev Daniel shared with us what it is like as new creations in Christ.
1. We have been justified in Christ (Romans 8:1) – Jesus accepts us, therefore we don’t need to worry about how others judge us; we are set free and there is no condemnation in new creations!
2. We have freedom from the powers and authorities of Satan (Colossians 2:13-15; James 4:7) – God makes us alive and we can fight the devil; so we should live a new life and start fresh.
3. We have been healed from all diseases (I Peter 2:24; James 5:15; Matthew 8:17) – Jesus takes over all our problems so we can be healed from inside to outside; we also have the authority to pray for the sick.
4. Jesus overcome all curses and death (James 1:23-25; Genesis 13:14) – God gives blessings to those who love Him wholeheartedly, so we should believe that all curses in our lives no longer exist.
