A New Creation

I’m not a sinner and nothing more
I’m also a saint who Christ restored

I live each day a new creation
The Holy Rock my firm foundation

Though I have sinned, falling short of God’s glory
My life of sin is not the end of the story

I live each day a new creation
Relying on the Spirit to resist temptation

Christ died to redeem a sinner like me
Now I have His sweet victory

I live each day a new creation
Secure and free in my salvation

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. I love remembering that we are made new! Especially when memories of how I used to be come creeping in. Thank you, Linda, and God bless!

    • Debbie, The thing our teaching leader said in the lecture that made me think of this poem was that if we think of ourselves as saints instead of sinners, we will live differently. I think that is true. It’s much easier to slip back into old habits and patterns of thinking if we think “Well, I’m just a sinner, I can’t help it.” But we aren’t just a sinner – we are redeemed, we are saints, we are His new creation! That makes it so much easier to live for Him. 🙂 Peace, Linda
