Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
2 Corinthians 5:17
Being a new creation is the direct result of being in Christ. It is something which only God can do. One need but to examine their own life in order to know if they are a new creature. The old things will no longer hold an allure to them. Every waking day will be new and alive with all the possibilities which are found in Christ. The new creature will no longer be trapped in a routine which repeats itself in the forms of bondage offered by this world.
