Bible Texts: 2nd Cor 5:17-19; Galatians 3:29; Isiah 53:10

What has confused many is the assumption that being a born again is only the change of behaviour. New birth in Christ is greater than that.

Anybody can change their character for many reasons but that doesn’t make them a born again. Just like a moralist is not a born again;but a born again is a moralist.

God does not renovate you when you come to Christ rather, the “old you” dies and the “new you” manifests. Born again is death and resurrection( you die to sin and come alive to righteousness).

The moment you become born again, you become ingrafted in Christ. The sinful natures vanishes at the time one is ingrafted in Christ.

The new creature is God in man; God wrapping himself in human flesh. Being in Christ is a personal choice. At new birth, God the father, God the son and the Holy Ghost dwells in the recipient.

After this is done, God then sanctifies the believer through His Word. Sanctification/ holiness is not instantaneous but progressive.

Prayer: Dear Lord, as I have understood the mystery of new creature, I cannot be condemned again, in Jesus name. Amen!

Rev Dr Bright Chibike is the founder of Dominant Throne Int’l church Awka where great armies are raised for Christ.
