If Christians are a new creation, why isn’t everything perfect? I ask the question because of today’s Verse of the Day, from YouVersion. It says we are a new creation. The old is gone. The new is here. It sounds so exciting! So how come things aren’t perfect? For that matter, how come little or nothing seems to have changed? Is the verse wrong?
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
See what I mean?
What’s the problem?
Why isn’t everything perfect?
Well, there are several reasons.
- We pulled the verse out of context
- The English translation loses something
- We missed a condition and its effects
