Nothing matters but the New Creation

    Scripture says;

    Galatians 6:15 (NASB)
    For neither is circumcision anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation.

    Circumcision under the Old Covenant was everything. It was the sign that one was one of God’s people or not. Under the New Covenant circumcision became null and void. It was now replaced by the New Creation or the New Birth, both being the same thing. Now it is a matter of this new life that has been brought to life in the believer. It is a matter of this life growing to where it would be the only thing expressed by that life that has chosen to be born again.

    Scripture says;

    Romans 6:20 (KJV)
    For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.

    When we served sin we where free from doing righteousness. Now as being set free from sin by our deaths, we can by a act of the will choose to be dead to sin and alive to God, whereby our fruit and the doings of our life’s would be righteousness. For nothing matters but this New Creation that has been birthed in us, coming to full growth and maturity in us. That righteousness and the fruit of righteousness, which is peace and joy in the Spirit of Christ, in the believer. Would so rule and reign in the believers life, that Christ could be seen and read by all man. For this is our acceptable service to God, that as living sacrifice's we would totally give ourselfs up to God, so He might work in us that which was pleasing to Him. Which is always and solely righteousness in all things. For He waits in righteousness, willing to bless those willing to walk in righteousness. Scripture says, you don’t have to be able to walk in righteousness, only be willing to walk in righteousness. For that is something we can do. Be willing. For scripture says;

    Romans 7:18 (NASB)
    For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh; for the willing is present in me, but the doing of the good [is] not.

    “for the willing is present in me”

    This is something we can choose, if so be the Spirit of Christ has been brought to birth in us. For this New Birth is the only thing that matters now. For it is the only thing that can live before God. And as those that are in possession of said life, we too can live before God, now, as to all eternity.

    Let us strive to choose the good thing. That which Mary chose. To sit a Jesus’s feet and learn of Him.

    Blessings,

    Much love in Christ, Not me

    Agreed. I really hope people could understand, that no denominations nor even religions matter, but only new creation.

    I believe that is what Jesus was teaching Mary, as she sat at His feet, and learned of Him......blessings

    So true. I am of Paul, I am of Apollos, have no standing before God. Only the New Creation, which is that that makes us Christian. Blessings,

    Much love in Christ, Not me
