NEW Creation pt3.
The gospel which we preach.Death, burial and resurrection and how each and every one of us go through this death burial and resurrection process called SALVATION.
If we are out of our mind, it is for God; if we are of sound mind, it is for you. 14For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that One died for all, therefore all died. 15And He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died for them and was raised again. (2 Corinthians 5;1)
16So from now on we regard no one according to the flesh. Although we once regarded Christ in this way, WE DO SO NO LONGER (2 Cor 5;16)
We don’t look at the flesh to determine who a brother or sister is. you are not known after the flesh because all of us after the flesh are sinners. all of us after Christ are new creation realities.
17Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.a The old has passed away. Behold, the new has come! (2 Corinthians 5;17). I don’t know any sinners here do you. If you label me as what I was then your mind is un-renewed. I am not what I was. I AM WHO HE IS!
We don’t look at the flesh to determine who you are. Trouble comes when you do that “men!” you marry someone cause of their curves and moves. Thats why you marry the old woman… then you wonder why your relationship is OLD, your love is growing old. Well… you done the same thing to Jesus have you not. you KNEW HIM AFTER THE FLESH AND NOT THE SPIRIT. You married a son, well that’s all he is to you. A son, the gentle Jesus meek and mild. you’ve missed something, you know his humanity but not his deity. You have to know him after the spirit to understand who he is now!
So we have stopped evaluating others from a human point of view. At one time we thought of Christ merely from a human point of view. How differently we know him now! 17 This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! (2 Cor 5;16 NLT).A new perspective of God gives you a new perspective of you. AS HE IS SO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD which means as we see and know him we so see and know ourselves. Since we were meek and lowly now we are bold and confident. since we were servants now we are sons, since we were slaves now are Sons, inheritors, possessors of an inheritance in christ. which means WE MOVE FROM being lowly to being MIGHTY, TAKING KINGDOMS, SEIZING TERRITORY, Standing up for that which is right. LIVING THE RESURRECTION LIFE. not the dying to self life, thats why you done when you were baptised, you buried the old man, stop trying to die to self and live to God.
