A New Person


“Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”
II Corinthians 5:17 (NLT)

We are a new person in Christ. But how much do we really know about this “new person” that we have become? The authors of “Truefaced” make this point, “If we do not start with ‘trusting who God says we are’, we will end up trusting in our own resources to try to please God. The fact is, in Christ we are sons and daughters of God. We are joint heirs with Christ. We are a temple of His Holy Spirit. We are a “saint” and created by God to do His good works. We are a disciple of Jesus Christ and a citizen of heaven seated with Christ in heavenly places. We have been chosen by God to be part of His chosen race, a royal priesthood, a people of God. In Christ, we are Holy and dearly loved, free from condemnation for the things we have done. We are unconditionally loved and have been completely forgiven and made righteous. We have been established, anointed and sealed by God in Christ and have been blessed with every spiritual blessing. Today, make these truths more than words. Let them sink deep into your heart. Believe that you are a new person in Christ, the old life is gone and a new life has begun.

Father, I thank You for making me a new person in You. Help me know more of what this really means and to live it out in my everyday life.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
