“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are new” – 2Corinthians 5:17

LIGHT FOR NOW: You are a new creature.

The new creature is not of the world; thus, cannot be comprehended by the world; he is in Christ. “For in Him we live, and move, and have our being,…” (Acts 17:28); our life, our movement and our being is in him.

Therefore, Christ is the natural environment of the believer. The world cannot dictate the new man. The new man in Christ is only dictated by the word; this is because the new man is born of the word.

Apostle Paul lays credence to this: “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God which liveth and abideth forever” (1Petere 1:23). So, the word birthed you. The word “seed” used in the above text is where we have the English word “sperm”. Your parentage is in the word or from the word. In essence, you are a child of the word.

The word of God therefore determines the origin of the believer. When you understand your realm, you will maximize all that you have in Christ. The word of God is the final authority as far as the identity of the believer is concerned.

Your identity will only unveil when the word of God is revealed to you. So if you want to know who you are in Christ, don’t go to a psychologist or philosopher. They don’t have the capacity to know you. The world lacks the capacity to know who the man in Christ is; the world cannot handle the man in Christ. The man in Christ is higher than the world; the man in Christ doesn’t go to the world to know who he is, he goes to the word to know who he is because he is born of the word. It is the revelation of Christ that unveils this man (the new creature). So, both Christ and this man are a revelation; that is, Christ is known by revelation, also, the man in Christ is known by revelation.

Scientific knowledge or scientific discovery cannot explain you; the new creature is higher than science. Where the new creature is concerned, science is limited. Scientist with all their intelligence does not have what it takes to explain the man in Christ. You are better than science. Science can fail but you cannot fail.

INSTRUCTION: Never allow your mental capacity dictate any realities outside the reality of your personality in Christ.

PRAYER: Thank you father for revealing me to me through your word, in Jesus Name. Amen.

QUOTE: You are born of the word; you are not born of the world.
