Are you a part of the “Second Creation”?


BIBLE MEDITATION:

And He is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things He might have the preeminence. Colossians 1:18

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

There are two beginnings in creation.

The first occurred when God created the heavens and the earth. He spoke and—just like that—from His fingertips flew this vast, measureless universe. How simple it was for God to create this universe.

The second is when His creature, man, becomes a new creation in Christ (see 2 Corinthians 5:17). When God reconciled us through His Son, it took every drop of Jesus’ blood. There was no other way to be saved apart from the death of Jesus—the perfect sacrifice. There still isn’t another way.

ACTION POINT:

None of us were here for the first Creation. But we can all be a part of the Second Creation! If you have received the salvation Jesus bought with His blood—thank Him that He’s made you a new creature…a second creation!
