OPEN HEAVEN 17 JULY 2021 TOPIC — New Creature In Christ I

MEMORISE: Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. – 2 Corinthians 5:17

READ: Romans 7:18-25 (KJV)

18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I not.

19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.

20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.

22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:

23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Job 13-14

Open Heaven 17 July 2021 :

Speaking about a new creature is an indication that there was an old one. A new in Christ, however, is the new way of thinking and doing things in accordance with the word of God. Galatians 2:20 says:

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”

This simply means that when a person accepts Jesus as his or her Lord and Saviour, such a person automatically becomes dead to the old life. Every link with the old life is cut off. The old password simply refuses to work because the username has changed. This marks the end of the old life and the beginning of the new one in Jesus, as seen in today’s memory verse (2 Corinthians 5:17).

At this point everything about the life we lived before we met Jesus ceases. Every new creature in Christ submits to His lordship. From the point of rebirth, we begin to for righteousness by pursuing purity, honesty, justice, love, humility, and to humanity; we take on a new focus. The Bible makes it clear that becoming a Christian is more than adopting a new philosophy of life. It starts from a new mind – you immediately begin to think differently from the old ways to such an extent that your new behaviour may seem strange, even to you.

Out of the blue, you suddenly have new standards, you begin to measure everything you do in line with the word of God. This new life in Christ comes with the assurance of abundant life – here on earth and even in heaven. You have the assurance of answered prayers, confidence in His love and mercy. As you read His word, your faith grows and intensifies to the point where you know that He will never leave nor forsake you.

God is faithful and dependable; as a new creature in Jesus Christ, you can count on Him. Ignore the devil whenever he comes to remind you of your past. The Bible describes him as the accuser of the brethren (Revelation 12:10). Respond boldly by reminding him that old things are passed away and you are now a new creature in Christ.

Open Heaven 17 July 2021 PRAYER POINT:

Father, as a new creature in Christ, please help me to always live according to Your word, in Jesus’ name.

Open Heaven 17 July 2021 HYMN 2: Amazing Grace! How Sweet The Sound

1. Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.

2. ’Twas grace that taught my to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.

I have already come;

His Word my hope secures;
He will my Shield and Portion be,
As long as life endures.

And mortal life shall cease,

A life of joy and .

6. The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who called me here below,
Will be forever mine.

7. When we’ve been there ten thousand ,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun.
