Aug 16 Devotion: A New Creature

A New Creature

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

One of the things I enjoy doing even though I haven’t in a while is going to car shows. On our way home last week I seen an old truck rusted out being hauled on a trailer. I couldn’t help but think I wish I had the resources and time to rebuild that truck. To me there is nothing cooler than seeing some of those historic vehicles completely rebuilt inside and out. One thing I haven’t seen is a car that has just been strictly re-painted on the outside and then everything on the inside be exactly as the same as it was 30, 40, 50 years ago or more. God’s Word tells us that if we give our life to him, we are a new creature. We should be different inside and out. It’s not a matter of just putting on a good show on the outside, but also a change on the inside. We should have new desires, a new perspective, a new willingness to serve Christ, etc. There is no such thing as a perfect Christian so I’m not suggesting that we should be perfect. Just as it takes time to rebuild those old cars we should grow as Christians over time. I’m not trying to get anyone to question their salvation, but can you look back on that time you became a new creature?

God bless you today! Bro. Josh Richardson
