If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, then you are the New You. The apostle Paul calls you a New Creation. In the eyes of God and in the presence of all angelic creations and the devil, you have become a New Creation. Your old life has passed away, and at this very moment everything becomes new. You have new life, new dreams, new vision, new day, new joy, new strength, new relationships, new blessings, new song, new praise, new heart, new soul, new mind and new revelation from the Word of God. What you found is the very life of God; it sits within you – deep in your heart. It is everlasting life, it has no limit, and it is new every day.
In 1 John 1:1-3, the apostle John testifies that Jesus Christ, the Son of God is the Word of Life. And this Life, the Eternal Life which is the very life of the Father, was manifested in the flesh. John wrote that they have seen Him, touched Him, and they have fellowship with Him. The truth is, John desires that you also enjoy your fellowship with the Son and with the Father. In 1 John 5:11-12, the apostle through the power of the Holy Spirit continues to reveal Jesus, “This is the testimony: That God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.” What you found is not a religion, not a system of belief, not a dogma, not a social science, not a philosophy or another feel good stuff. What you found is the life of God through Jesus, a life with the abundance of His grace and mercy, a life that is full of the joy, the unspeakable joy. As far as God is concern, no one can take that life away from you – it is eternal.
In Ephesians 1:16-19, 3:14-19, the apostle Paul never ceases to mention you in his prayer. He prays that you will receive God’s revelation of His inheritance that is available for you. He prays that you will be enlightened of the greatness of God’s power, the power that is now working in you. He prays that you would have understanding of His love for you, so that you will be filled with the fullness of God. This is Paul’s desire for you, that you would enjoy the fullness of God and His abundant blessings because they are belong to you.
It is heartbreaking to see someone who professes to be a follower of Christ and yet lives in a defeated life. A child of God shall not live defeated, nor shall remain in just coping to survive the harshness of this present earthly life. In Psalm 37:25, David wrote, “I have been young, and now old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his descendants begging bread, he is ever merciful, and lends; and his descendants are blessed.” Again, in Psalm 34:10, David wrote, “The young lions lack and suffer hunger; but those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.” It is true that a child of God goes through testing and trials of faith, however, David reminds us in verse 19 that God would not leave us without any help, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.” Also in verse 17, David said, “The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears. And delivers them out of all their troubles.”
In the Old Testament, the people of God enjoyed His abundant blessings, as long as they continue in obedience. God highly exalted them with so much blessings, victory and prosperity. Deuteronomy 28:2, states, “And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord, your God.” They became mighty and strong, and in verse 10, it says, “Then all peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they shall be afraid.” They have known by the whole world for their abundant economic wealth, military might, a strong and healthy nation, and serving the living God. Neighboring nations dared to challenge them, nor insult them. They were the most powerful nation in the face of the planet at the time.
However, the New Testament is better than the Old Testament. In other words, the new covenant is far better than the old covenant because it contains the truths about the New Creation. The new covenant is the Spirit’s revelation of the identity of the New Creation and you need to discover your identity in Christ because you have so much blessing in Christ Jesus.
