NEW CREATION v NEW IDENTITY

2019 – FRIDAY 01 FEBRUARY

NEW CREATION v NEW IDENTITY

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

Some years ago there was an incredible revelation across the church – of New Creation Realities. (NCR)
We learnt who we are in Christ – and it changed the church.

Today there is a new wave sweeping across the church that sounds a lot like NCR but has some fundamental differences.
Today’s emphasis is on who we are as unique individuals – seeking to maximise our unique destiny.
I call this current wave “New Identity Realities.” (NIR)

Some key differences.
NCR – He can
NIR – Me can

NCR – Die to self
NIR – Live for self

NCR – Justified in Christ
NIR – Self justification

NCR – Obey the word
NIR – Use the word

NCR – The call to His cause
NIR – The call to my greatness

NCR – A commitment to prayer
NIR – A belief in prayer

NCR – Joy in possessing Christ
NIR – Joy in possessing favour

NCR – Humble yourself
NIR – Promote yourself

NCR – Live by faith & sacrifice
NIR – Live by wisdom & strength

NCR – I can do all thing through Christ.
NIR – I can do all things for Christ.

IN HIM WE LIVE AND MOVE
AND HAVE OUR BEING.
