Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
“What Jesus did in His death, burial, and resurrection changed all of heaven and earth—seen and unseen!” – Mark Hankins
Jesus did not go through the agony of the crucifixion, death, burial, and resurrection just to help us a little bit. What Jesus did in His death, burial and resurrection, changed all of heaven and earth — seen and unseen!
The world is constantly fantasizing about Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Hercules, the Bionic Woman, the Six Million Dollar Man, Jedi Knights, and the Incredible Hulk. Each of these individuals is an amazing specimen among us. Many stories have been told, but God has produced the real thing — the most amazing specimen of all. He has created a man in Christ. This is no man- made fantasy. God has made a new creature that is a sign and a wonder in this world!
As we feed on the Word, we partake of the same power that fueled these world-changing events two thousand years ago. A man in Christ is a world-changing man!
Confession: I am a world-changing man. I am a man in Christ. Jesus is Lord in my life!
