A New Creation

February 12th, 2011

John 8:12-20

John 8 says that we no longer walk in darkness, but have the light of life. This is also the promise of 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”
I have worked for many years with an Iraqi man imprisoned for murder. In prison, he read an Arabic Bible, learned about God, and accepted Jesus as Savior. This man became an incredible testimony of new creation in Christ. He devoted the rest of his days to God’s service, reaching thousands with God’s Word and love. He was a force for God. So much so, that many in the Arab world were scared of all he was doing. His life gave evidence that God had redeemed him completely. A “new creation”–no longer in darkness, but living and walking in the light of the Lord.
