He is Risen! Yes, Indeed.
I know it is after Easter but the truth of this statement continues. Praise God that death could not hold Jesus and He is risen from the grave.
The resurrection power rose Jesus from the grave, that same power raises those who believe from the grave.
Some might ask what grave? We were once spiritually dead, separated from God by our sins, blinded by the Kingdom of darkness and captives to a way of thinking, a way of living. But for those who have received Jesus Christ as their Lord & Saviour, God has given the power to become sons.
I am a new creation, my past doesn’t have to hold me, I don’t have any longer to be a slave to addiction, whether that be alcohol, tobacco, gambling, pornography. I don’t have to be held captive by fear, rejection, inferiority, guilt or shame nor come under the control of manipulation……..the list goes on….. I/YOU ARE A NEW CREATION. The power that raised Jesus from the dead is the same power that has made you and me a new creation.
A new creation, no longer having to repeat the same errors as our parents and grandparents, free to be all we are called to be through Christ, a new story.
New, fresh, renewed, restored to what I should have been…… wow ………
Do you walk as a new creation?
I must confess that I often have to remind myself, the old has gone, the new has come, HE IS RISEN! I have to remind myself about who God says I am and not what circumstance, situations or people might.
Often in our walk as NEW CREATIONS we stumble and fall, we resurrect the past so to speak. I would like to encourage you to keep on going. Keep on reminding yourself of who you are in Christ.
Keep on choosing to walk as a new creation.
You are a child of God. You are precious. You are loved. You are unique.
Remember He that started a good work in you will complete it.
God's continued blessings,
Pastors Marty & Rebeca
