DAY 31 THURSDAY: DECEMBER 2020

YOUR PRESENT STATE OF REALITY IN LIFE!

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new (2 Corinthians 5:17).

As soon as you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, your present status is changed from old to new creation in life. At that point in time, you exist in the present hour reality in life. Of course, you automatically become entitle to whatever promises that God has made in Christ Jesus to every new creation in life. As a new creation in Christ, you have a new life, a new beginning, a new promise, a new heritage and a new identity in Christ Jesus. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that his present state of reality in life is found in Christ Jesus. Hence, a Christian’s present state of reality is absolutely established and at the same time rooted in Christ Jesus forever.

In fact, no matter how dirty and terrible your past was, through Jesus Christ you are cleansed and become an agent of change in life. That is why Jesus Christ said in John 15:3 thus, “You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.” Therefore, it is indeed the Word of God through faith that actually cleanses a man and brings him into a new state of life in Christ Jesus. The Word of God has the potency to cleanse and purge a Christian no matter the degree of sin committed in life. Whenever a sinner gives his attention to God’s Word, he will be freed and cleansed in life. A life that is established and rooted in God’s Word of life is absolutely a life that will indeed experience transformation from one state of reality to another in life forever.

As a new creation in Christ, Jesus Christ took your place of sin and condemnation and gave you His righteousness in life. In the present state, you are one with Jesus Christ and heir of God’s kingdom in life. You now have the nature and Spirit of Jesus Christ in life. Your present status is elevated from a condemned sinner to a saint in the body of Christ Jesus in life. You are expected to know your rights and privileges as you study the Word of God in life. In fact, as you continuously study God’s Word and meditate upon it, your life experiences divine metamorphosis into a present state of reality in Christ Jesus. Therefore, the Word of God is absolutely the only weapon for the total transformation of man from one state of reality into another in life forever. 

Daily Tip: Your present status is a new creation in Christ Jesus, destined for life and eternity forever. Shalom!
