New creation

If any man be in Christ he is a new creation. This verse (2 Corinthians 5:17) means more to some than to others. For example, I got saved at an early age, because of that Christ made me a new creation, but I didn’t have some huge sin debt to get over. I hadn’t had a chance to mess up my life or get into “serious sin” on the other hand; a friend of mine just recently got saved, she’s a teenager she has some bad habits that were fine or a lost person but not acceptable for a Christian. She has some skeletons in her closet she has to get over and give to God. For me being a new creation wasn’t near as significant as it was for her. She realized God had forgiven her; He has made her a new creation, her old sins and mistakes are passed away. God forgives everyone who comes to Him, if there young and innocent like I was or who ever in your mind is the worst possible person ever. To God our sins are equal. Although it’s easier for me to overcome my past, I am no better in God’s eyes, or I would be, but God has forgiven me and washed me white as snow in His blood shed on the cross. God is willing to make us all new creations if only we come to Him by faith. No matter what you’ve done be it big or small God can and will forgive you if only you ask and believe in Him.
