NEW CREATION MYSTERIES #3: You Are Brand New
Dear New Creation,
The new creature is not a refurbished being. He/ she is not a “pimped up” version of himself/herself. He is not a sinner saved by grace. The sinner was saved by grace, but then the sinner died and the new creature was born.
Romans 6:3-5 NLT
“ Or have you forgotten that when we were joined with Christ Jesus in baptism, we joined him in his death?  For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.  Since we have been united with him in his death, we will also be raised to life as he was.”
There is no longer any part of the old you left. God did not need the raw material of the old you to help with the new you. Call yourself who you are and not what you were.
The new man and the old man are two different natures. As different as the day is from the night. The old man having the nature of fallen Adam. The new man the nature of The divine man Jesus.
You cannot posses two natures at once. You can’t be both man and goat. You can act goat-like (you know yourself) but you are a man. Likewise even when you act like the old man, know this. The truth of your new nature does not change. You are brand new!
