Today's Inspiring Thought: A New Creation in Christ

If you're like me, when you first read this Bible verse it was one of the most thrilling revelations of your new life in Christ. But it probably didn't take long for you to begin to doubt the truth of these words.

Even though we do, in fact, undergo a miraculous transformation the moment we surrender our lives to Jesus, we don't always see it or feel it. This new existence happens because of our spiritual relationship to Christ—in Christ—and it is only in Christ that we are new. This is the work of the Holy Spirit and not anything we can achieve of our own efforts. So, rest in the knowledge of God's amazing creative work and have faith that it is, and forever will be, completely fulfilled in Christ alone.
