Focus on God’s Goodness-New Creations

July 2nd, 2024

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Focus on God’s Goodness is found in Second Corinthians 5:17.

“If anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: the old has gone, the new is here!”

The grace of God transforms lives from the inside out, building the character of Christ in us and affecting other people’s lives through us.

One of the ways we become a new creation in Christ is that we are reconciled to God. The barrier of sin comes down, and our relationship with God is restored to peace and harmony.

Another way we become a new creation in Christ is that He gives us a message to share with the world. That message is a peace mission. Be reconciled to God. Jesus is the answer to reconciliation. That is why the Gospel is the relevant message for our important mission.

A third way we become a new creation is that we have the righteousness of Christ. God made Jesus who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.

“New creations in Christ” reveal the goodness of God and are reasons to give thanks in the Year of Gratitude.
