“New Creation” in Christ?

“New Creation” in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17)?

You become a “new creation” in Christ by faith in Jesus as your Lord (2 Corinthians 5:17) which results in the Holy Spirit of Promise taking-up residence within you by covenant promise (Ezekiel 36:27; Hebrews 8:12; Ephesians 1:13-14) and it is the Holy Spirit’s presence in your life that transforms you into a “new creation” as He’s there to conform you to the obedient image of Jesus Christ…a task that is not possible without the Holy Spirit’s presence (Ephesians 1:13-14; Galatians 5:16).

You remain encapsulated in a decaying body of death and sin even subsequent faith and salvation (Romans 7:14-25); the difference being, the Holy Spirit’s daily work in transforming your inner man via sanctification…a work you cannot perform without the Holy Spirit and obedience to His will for your life via the conscience.
