The man in Christ is not new for a day or a week or a month after he gets saved. The ‘new man’ does not refer to a baby in Christ; it is the identity received upon being born again and it remains the status forever. Someone that has been in Christ for over forty years is still a new man. 

2 Corinthians 5:17 says Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” Old things are passed away – whatever you were before you became saved have passed away and you do not identify with them any longer (Psalm 103:12). In the eyes of God, you are new.

We are the first of our kind – the first kind of people after the resurrection. We now have the life of God and are called the sons of God. Not even the angels of God have this privilege. So, the man that is a new man is simply ‘the man in Christ’. In this new creation, there is no Jew or Gentile – everyone in Christ is on the same plane. Galatians 3:28 says “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus”.

The new man has eternal life and is dead to sin (Titus 3:7).

The new man is indwelled by the Spirit of God (Acts 2:4).

The new man is the righteousness of God. God made you right with Him when you believed in Him. You are the proof of whom God has made right (2 Corinthians 5:21).

The new man has been justified by faith. The verdict has been passed and it is ‘discharged and acquitted’ (Romans 3:24, 5:1).

The new man has all the blessings of God (Ephesians 1).

The new man is chosen by God, holy, and without blame before Him (1 Peter 2:9; Ephesians 1:4).

The new man is predestinated unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ. This means that you have God as Father. You have been accepted in the beloved, and will never lose acceptance in His sight (Ephesians 1:5-6).

The new man has been redeemed through His blood and has received the forgiveness of sins (Ephesians 1:5). What blessedness!

God sees you as He sees Christ. You have all the things God says you have. You have His power, authority, and dominion. You are that new man, and so, walk in the nobility of such.
