Luke 7:11-17 | Ephesians 2:1-6

 

Paul tells us that in sin we are dead. This is figurative and literal. Just like a dead man, a sinner can’t raise himself up or make himself better. A sinner can’t stop sinning and is destined to die an eternal death.

But Jesus is a resurrector of the dead and He can make us alive in Him. Our Saviour can make us a new creature in Christ Jesus. (2 Cor. 5:17) He doesn’t help make us better. He creates a new thing. (Rev. 21:5) He brings life to what was impossibly dead and gives us eternal life with Him. The Mighty Creator, seen in Genesis 1, is still creating new life today.

I’m a new creation
I’m a brand new man
Old things are passed away
I am born again
More than a conqueror
That’s who I am
I’m a new creation
I’m a brand new man

I’m A New Creation
