2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a NEW CREATURE: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
IN HIS IMAGE
Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
We sometimes don't like to think of our self as creatures but that is what we are. We were created by God. We did not evolve, we did not just happen but we were created by God in His image.
Some may ask if we are created in the image of God, why don't we resemble Him more? We don't resemble God in our natural state because we have been marred by sin. That is why we need Jesus. He comes into our life and we receive the Holy Spirit and He then begins to transform us. He transforms us so that we become more like Christ.
Are you allowing God to transform your life into someone who more resembles His image. After all, if you are saved, you are now a new creature.
