Title: The development of the new creation within us
Text verse: 2 Corinthians 5: 17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
Message: Let us do our part to help the new creation within us to develop.
- Paul describes the time prior to baptism with water as the “old” creation”, and the time thereafter as the “new” creation.
- The new creation within us leads to a life that is focused on the Lord.
- Our old existence, which is burdened with sin, must die. The new creation then takes its place.
- Signs of the new creation within us include love for God and our neighbour, as well as gentleness and humbleness.
