Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. 2 Corinthians 5:17
What does it mean to be Born Again? (John 3:3) This is a concept that a lot of Christians seem to have trouble understanding. You are not saved by your religious affiliations, you are not saved by the amount of money you put into the offering plate, and your not saved by doing community service, you are saved by faith through Jesus Christ only!
Now when you truly accept Jesus as your Lord, something begins to happen, you become Born Again. You are baptized with the Holy Spirit and the sanctification process starts to begin. This is how you become a New Creature through Christ
The old things pass away, meaning your old sinful lifestyle. No longer are you a slave to the sins that trap you like alcohol, drugs, pornography, gambling, ect. You have put away the old and have been set free through Christ
He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:21
Jesus the sinless Lamb of God took the penalty for your sin! Think about this, who would die in your place? Who loves you enough to die for you? Jesus is the answer! Become reconciled with God today and made new through Jesus Christ!
