“For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection” – Romans 6:5
LIGHT FOR NOW: The New Creation is a conveyor and distributor of God’s eternal blessings.
The new creation stands out as the most distinguished miracle of redemption; we are recreated to be like God by His word “Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures” (James 1:18). Being recreated by the Spirit is purely the work of God; the only part we play is to consent to God giving us His nature and to recognize the Lordship of the new head of the new creation, Jesus Christ. So presently, the believer is the house of God; he is the very temple and holy sanctuary of the most High God. God has chosen to live in him, and thus, he bears His presence – His healing, His salvation, His liberty and help to the dying world. Beyond the forgiveness of sins, you’re in union with Divinity; it’s an inseparable oneness. That is why you are superior to Satan, having dominion over the forces of darkness!
The new creation is a conveyor and distributor of God’s eternal blessings, hence wherever and whenever he shows up, the blessedness of the Father has arrived; whether the people acknowledge it or not, it doesn’t change the fact that the believer is a carrier of divine blessings. 2 Peter 1:4 says, “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of divine nature…” Paul is saying we’re partakers of God’s kind of life – “divine nature”. The term in the Greek is “theias – phuseos” which really means “God-kind”. So being born again is much more than being forgiven your sins; you’ve been brought into fellowship with Divinity. The forgiveness of sins has granted us access into the Father and all He has, hence we are called heirs of God, and joint – heirs with Christ, having been glorified together with Him in His resurrection. Hallelujah! What an honor! This is what the Gospel of Jesus Christ has made us.
INSTRUCTION: You are sealed with the Holy Ghost; acknowledge this!
PRAYER: I affirm that because I am found in Christ, I have been brought into the fraternity of the God-kind, in Jesus Name, Amen.
QUOTE: The believer is a carrier of divine blessings.
