A New Beginning

Rate this Entry
2 Corinthians 5:17 - Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! - A new year is often viewed as a new beginning, and we can think of ourselves as having a new beginning if we have come to Christ. The Apostle Paul wrote 2 Corinthians about 55 a.d. probably when he was in Macedonia, and in 5:17 notice that Paul says "has come," "has gone" and "is here," he never uses the words "might come," might be gone," or "might be here." It's a done deal for those in Christ because of what he did for us on the cross. He paid for all our sins and promises us eternity in Heaven as his free gift to us if we have faith in him. Ephesians 2:8-9 says - For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-not by works, so that no one can boast. Despite our feelings and what we may have been told, we can't work our way to forgivness and eternal life, we can only rely on Christ for that. We need to have faith in him in order to be a new creation. What About Jesus?
