1/29/2021 – A New Creation

II Corinthians 5:17 - Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
To be in Christ you must pick up your cross
And die with Him upon that lonely hill.
Once crucified, the sins you bore are dross;
The price you had to pay He’s now fulfilled.
Now dead in Christ, in Christ you are reborn
As He is resurrected from the tomb!
God’s grace replaces law, the veil is torn;
You live in Jesus, straight from Spirit’s womb.
The flesh has passed away, its nature passed,
And with it all the power that Satan bore.
A new creation now in Him surpassed
To grow into His likeness more and more.
            The old man now is gone – bid him adieu.
            Behold! In Christ alone you now are new!
