Brand New // Part 3

(II Corinthians 5:17 TPT) Now, if anyone is enfolded into Christ, he has become an entirely new creation. All that is related to the old order has vanished. Behold, everything is fresh and new.

Bad news

(Psalm 51:5 NLT) For I was born a sinner--yes, from the moment my mother conceived me.

(Romans 3:23) for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

Good news

(Ephesians 2:8-9) For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.

Born from above

(Titus 3:5) He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit,

Made new

(Romans 6:4 ESV) We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.

What can I do?

Meditate.

(Psalm 119:11 AMP) Your word I have treasured and stored in my heart, That I may not sin against You.

(Psalm 1:2) but whose delight is in the law of the LORD, and who meditates on his law day and night.

Declare.

(Psalm 71:15 NLT) I will tell everyone about your righteousness. All day long I will proclaim your saving power, though I am not skilled with words.

(Proverbs 18:21) The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

Discipline.

(Philippians 2:12-13 TPT) My beloved ones, just like you’ve always listened to everything I’ve taught you in the past, I’m asking you now to keep following my instructions as though I were right there with you. Now you must continue to make this new life fully manifested as you live in the holy awe of God—which brings you trembling into his presence. God will continually revitalize you, implanting within you the passion to do what pleases him.
