When you believed the gospel message of Jesus Christ … you became a NEW CREATION.
Spiritually speaking, you became someone who had not existed before. You became someone completely new. God did not remodel, redo, or improve the old you. The old you is gone. The new you is here. The old you died with Christ. The new you was raised to a new life in Christ.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” II Corinthians 5:17
“It doesn’t matter whether we have been circumcised or not. What counts is that we are a new creation.” Galatians 6:15
“We have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.” Romans 6:4
