2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV); Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
The new creature in Christ is peculiar (1 Peter 2:9). God does not even define it as a human being because that would be de-ranking it in the realm of spirits.
The Bible uses the word ‘creature’ because there is no proper way to define God in a man and a man in God; the infinite in the finite and the finite in the infinite; the creature in the creator and the creator in the creature.
James 1:18 paints a unique picture of how this special breed of creation came to be. The Bible says that it was created out of the fullness of the Word of God.
In Ephesians 2:10, the Bible says, this creature was created in Christ. God entered the essence, depth and personality of eternity’s Anointed One and made this being.
No wonder he is a mystery! No wonder angels marvel at his existence (1 Peter 1:12).
Do you know who you are, child of God?
How can low self-esteem be an issue to one who knows this truth? How can insecurity incapacitate one who understands this reality?
You are a wonder!

Amen.
