Rhythms of Grace – Rebuilt by the Spirit

Rebuilt by the Spirit by keeping in step 

2 Corinthians 5:17 NASB “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.”

Many believers have such a struggle trying to learn to walk as steadfast disciples of Christ while still crippled from their pasts. Although in sincerity they want to speed ahead, but before long they become frustrated and confused, especially when they see others who are progressing steadily.

But to become a new creature in Christ is only the beginning of this new life. The promise, “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation,” does not instantly guarantee the complete product. It does promise new possibilities opening to us though—we are no longer dominated or controlled by our pasts. But for the full dominion and power of Christs rule to penetrate the whole personality, in most cases “the real you” needs to be rebuilt by the Spirit, day by day by day.
