Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet we now know Him thus no longer. 17) 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: 16,17
Some of us struggle to feel forgiven and accept that we have been rescued, redeemed, restored – new creations defined by our Saviour’s love for us, not by the sins that once held us in bondage. The Apostle Paul considered himself to be the worst of sinners, affirmed that believers in Jesus needed to stop seeing people and Christ from a human point of view. As ‘new creations’ who have been reconciled to God through Jesus finished work on the cross, our sins are no longer counted against us. Having received this new identity, God’s children become living ambassadors for Christ. Our past sins have no more hold on us. That’s what Easter, Resurrection Sunday is all about.
