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.
1 Corinthians 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
Growing into spiritual maturity as a new creature in Christ is not a simple task. Knowing how to conform to His will can sometimes be unclear to us. It is as Paul said we are looking into a "glass darkly". We can see only a shadow of what is really there.
We have a mirror that is perfectly clear and it works two ways. We have the Word of God, the Bible. It not only shows us Jesus and His life and His word that we should conform to, but it also shows us the areas in our life we need to work on.
Many people fail to mature as a new creature in Christ because they fail to ever learn what God wants them to become. He wants you to become more like Christ. Conform to that image and you will begin to find your potential as a new creature.
