2 Corinthians 5:15-17

It’s a new day! The breaking forth of a new season! A new beginning…
Greater things yet undone are about to spring forth.
The Bible likens the rising of the sun to a bridegroom coming out of his chamber; and to a strong man rejoicing to run his course (Psalm 19:5).
Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth, I tell you of them (Isaiah 42:10).
Remember not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth. Shall you not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert (Isaiah 43:18-19).
…And He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again (2 Cor. 5:15).
Through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, we have received a mandate and grace to henceforth live for Him, not for the fulfilment of lustful desires. As citizens of God’s kingdom, we no longer live to glorify self, but to glorify Jesus (Gal. 2:20; Phil. 1:21).

So, Christ died for us all, so that our living would be profitable and yield the desired fruits of righteousness.

Through His death on the Cross, many people were drawn unto Him and sons were raised (John 12:24, 32).
…Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer… (2 Cor. 5:16).
When we walk in the light of the knowledge of God’s glory, we begin to see people as God sees them. Having received spiritual insight, we view things from the heavenly perspective.

Even our ‘knowledge’ of Christ Jesus is brought under divine scrutiny, and it’s no longer after the flesh, but as the Spirit of God reveals. We begin to see great potentials in people. Our eyes of understanding are being enlightened, we see hope, we see solutions, we see the rising of a new day, a new realm of glory!
…Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new… (2 Cor. 5:17).
Being in Christ is a function of strategic positioning.
If you are rightly positioned in the Spirit, in such a way that you receive daily insights from God, your inner man is being renewed day by day… (2 Cor. 4:16).
The new creation experience brings you under the spotlight of God. It enhances your capacity for creativity and innovation.

Furthermore, the old Adamic nature is put to death, and you receive the grace to walk in the newness of life.

Old things have passed away, old habits are gone, the old life vanishes and a new life burgeons…
Behold, all things have become new!
As a new creation (regenerated) man, you are not born after the similitude of Adam, but of Christ Jesus (1 Cor. 15:21-22, 45, 47).
