The New Creation - Part 1 of 2
Summary: A 2 Part Sermon Series In 2 Corinthians 5:17, Paul declares: “if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” What does it mean to leave the old and live within the new? In this two-part message by Eric Ludy, the difference between the old creature and the new creature is examined. The triumphant reality of the Cross of Christ is that as Christians we have a whole new anatomy. We have a brand new heart, mind, ears, eyes, nose, and tongue— altering how we think, live, and talk. Some believers want the new heart and mind but wish to leave the new tongue behind; others put emphasis on tongues but forget about the rest of body. As Christians, we are new creatures, where every part of us is transformed ever more into the likeness of Jesus Christ. If you have struggled with what it means to be a new creature in Christ—in every part of your life—this sermon is for you.
