How new are you? If you have been born again by the Spirit of God, you are a completely new creation. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” (2 Cor. 5:17). How important is this? Jesus said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” and “You must be born again” (John 3:3, 7). We are called to live according to who we are in Christ. Does your life reflect this radical change? Here are the three main points of the sermon from Ephesians 4:20-5:2 that further understand this truth.
- Put off the old humanity with its deceitful desires
- Be renewed in the spirit of your mind
- Put on the new humanity created after the likeness of God
