New Creature

New Creation

Author: Pat Aman

2 Corinthians 5:17  Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!

When we ask Jesus to come into our hearts and forgive us of our sins, He immediately cleanses us of our sins. We become a new person with new thoughts and actions.

But that does not mean we will not be temped anymore, it just means we now have the power to overcome temptation, by the power of the name of Jesus.

Jesus died on the cross, and shed His blood for us so we could be changed, forgiven, set free and deliver of our sins. Praise God!

As Children of God we must appropriate the fact that God has called us to live for Him. We must avoid any selfishness or personal ambition. We must practice diligence in everything,  and do what is right. Making sure our ethics reflect Jesus Christ in all our conduct.

People must see Jesus in us daily, in all our ways. We must try to live a life of holiness which requires that we live according to God’s standard, not that of the world. 

We must be determine to grow spiritually. Such growth is painful because one undergoes stretching, molding, and refining by the Holy Spirit. 

This is why it is so important to be willing to be shaped by the Holy

Spirit so that people can come to know Jesus through what what see in us.

Because of this we must spend time in God’s presence, in Prayer and Bible Study.

I promise you that you will not regret one second, minute or hour that you

spend time with God. For God Blessings His children and we get a renew spirit, every time we go and spend time with our Heavenly Father.

Just remember to daily keep Jesus in your heart and close to your heart.

There is a poem that I read back in the 70’s. As a matter of fact, my

husband Joe carries a cross in His pocket everyday, since we read this

poem. He does not carry it for show, but just to remind Him of the one who died for him, so that he could have eternal life.

A Cross In My Pocket

Carry a cross in my pocket

A simple reminder to me

Of the fact that I am a Christian

No matter where I may be. 

This little cross is not magic,

Nor is it a good luck charm

It isn’t meant to protect me

From every physical harm.

It’s not for identification

For all the world to see

It’s simply an understanding

Between my Savior and me.

When I put my hand in my pocket

To bring out a coin or a key

The cross is there to remind me

Of the price He paid for me.

It reminds me, too, to be thankful

For my blessings day by day

And to strive to serve Him better

In all that I do and say.

It’s also a daily reminder

Of the peace and comfort I share

With all who know my Master

And give themselves to His care.

So, I carry a cross in my pocket

Reminding no one but me

That Jesus Christ is the Lord of my life. If only I’ll let Him be.
