A new Creation

If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”
2 Corinthians 5:17

When a person comes to faith in Christ there will be some evidence of this faith in their lives. You won’t see perfection in a Christian, but what you will see is something different in that person. You will see some evidence that a person has a relationship with Christ.

Now it’s very important to we understand that we aren’t talking about being saved by works. You aren’t a Christian because you don’t curse or smoke or cut people off in traffic or because you go to church or give money to charity.

Everyone sins and falls short of God’s glory, but through Christ we are forgiven of those sins. A Christian is someone who calls on Christ to save them from their sins. (Romans 3:23-26)
You’ll see these differences more clearly in some Christians than in others – we’re all a work in progress and we all grow in Christ at different rates. “
