We Are A New Creation (Easter Message)

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ
he is a new creation; the old has
gone, the new has come!

All this is from God, who reconciled
us to Himself through Christ and
gave us the ministry of reconciliation;

That God was reconciling the world to
Himself in Christ, not counting men's
sins against them. And He has
committed to us the message of reconciliation.

We are therefore Christ's ambassadors,
as though God were making His appeal
through us.
We implore you on Christ's behalf:
Be reconciled to God.

God made Him who had no sin to be sin
for us, so that in Him we might become
the righteousness of God."
2 Corinthians 5: 17-21

We are a new creation. There is now no condemnation for those who are in Jesus Christ. So let us throw away our old sinful self. It is already dead in sins. We are now gloriously alive in Christ's righteousness, love and joy.

The video is not working, Mel. Thanks though for sharing us this verse. Your site reminds me to read the bible. I seldom read the bible and I am not a church goer but I am a believer.

Happy easter and may our good Lord bless you always.

Hi Rossel,
Thank you so much for pointing that out. I just replaced it with a working one. Being merely a believer cannot assure you of being taken by the Lord to His kingdom when He comes to rapture His church before the Great Tribulation on earth. The only key to salvation and eternal life is to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior and surrendering your life to Him. There is no other way. We cannot work for our own salvation by doing good works alone. If that can be done, then the Father would not have sent His only begotten Son to save all of us from perdition and eternal death. This is the grace of God that we must accept to ensure salvation and eternal life with the Lord. I hope and pray that you will see the light and do the simple prayer of acceptance. That will surely become the turning point of your life where everything will be opened before your very eyes. Thanks for your visit and comments. If you have any further questions or clarifications, you may email me at and I will gladly answer all your inquiries. God bless you all always.

Hi Me,
I'm glad that you have already accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior. Although maybe at first you will suffer hardship and testings, these are being done to cleanse you of all residues of sin or of sin's consequences. Later on, when we have been purified by fire, we will experience His promise of an abundant life. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.
