“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

The AMP translation says,

“therefore if any person is (ingrafted) in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old (previous moral and spiritual condition) has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come”. 

Every man who has received salvation has been given a new identity and a new life in Christ. He has been made a new creation; with his old self dead.

This new life is called the God-class of life.

It is the life of God operational in man. This new life in Christ functions differently with the regular human life. This life is alien to complaints and sickness. You may be living in the world, but you are not a product of the world. You have the new life; therefore, you have been configured for success. You are a product of the Word, not of the world.

You are alien to failure, sickness and all other elements of this world. You are a king here on earth. (Revelation 1:6).

Colossians 2:9 says,

“For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” 

The new life in Christ carries God in His fullness. It is a life that is far above human comprehension and far beyond the reach of the devil.

The new life in Christ is not controlled by blood.

When Jesus was crucified, the Bible recorded that his bowels were ruptured by a spear and blood and water gushed out. He was no longer flesh and blood; but flesh and bones.

Jesus said in Luke 24:39,

“Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.” 

That blood signified the end of the human age. It showed the translation from the normal man to the new life.

You carry the God-life in its fullness, you cannot be found under the bondage of sin. The new life in Christ is the victorious life.

I live the new creation life. I am victorious all round. I carry the God-life in its fullness. I live the new life in Christ.

1 John 5:4a; Colossians 1:19
