Topic: “NEW CREATURE IN CHRIST 2”
MEMORISE: 2 Corinthians 6:17
“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.”
READ: Isaiah 43:18-19 (KJV)
18. Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.
19. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
Everybody desires new things. As we expect new things to come our way, the Almighty God shall give them to us this season in Jesus’ name. God says He will do a new thing (Isaiah 43:19). To whom is He making this promise? To His people, of course. This leads all those who are expecting a new thing this season to ask themselves some fundamental questions: Am I a child of God? Does God know me? Am I among His elect? Am I among the redeemed of the Lord? What is the proof that I am redeemed of the Lord?
Our memory verse shows that, for you to be really redeemed of the Lord, you must adopt a new way of living.
One thing that can come upon a new creature in Christ is the movement from poverty to prosperity. The Bible says in (2 Corinthians 8:9) For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.
Apostle Paul encourages us to be transformed rather than being conformed to this world of sin (Romans 12:1-2). The truth of the matter is this: only those who are in Christ can experience the new things God promises us in His word:
Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. – (2 Corinthians 6:17-18)
You need to change all old habits that are contrary to God’s word. New blessings cannot come upon an old life of sin.
Matthew 9:16-17 says: No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse. Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.
I pray that you will experience new things in your life this season, in Jesus’ name.
