New creatures in Christ

By Dr. John W. Lewis - Religion Writer

II Corinthians 5:27, “Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

A tremendous change occurs when a person becomes a new creature in Christ. His relationship to God is as follows: First, justification (a change of standing before God). Secondly, regeneration (a change of nature from God). Thirdly, repentance (a change of mind about God). Fourthly, conversion (a changed life for God). Fifth, adoption (a change of family in God). Sixth, sanctification (a change of service unto God). And seventh, glorification (a change of place with God).

What a wonderful change in my life has been wrought, since Jesus came into my heart!
