Bible Summary. When we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior we are a new man. The new man is in continual relationship with God. A new man knows God and is in constant fellowship with God. The evidence that the new man loves God is his good works. See below for Biblical commentary and scriptures in regard to being a new man in Christ.
Our New Man Is Formed in Righteousness.
A Christian Value. When we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior we are a new man. We began to take on Christian values because our new man is formed out of God’s righteousness. Ephesians 4:24 advises us to put on the new man that is created in righteousness and holiness.
Ephesians 4:24, “And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.”
A New Man Follows God and Does Not Follow His Own Way.
The new man is in continual relationship with God. The old man chooses sin and is in fellowship with the devil, the flesh, and the world. Separated from God, the old man cannot do good. Romans 3:12 advises us that no one is righteous that does not follow God.
Romans 3:12, “They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”
A New Man Shows He Knows God By Doing Good Works.
A new man knows God and is in constant fellowship with God. The evidence that the new man loves God is his good works. The new man does things that are in fellowship with God such as praying, helping the poor, loving his fellow man, and being patient with people. Titus 1:16 advises us that are lack of good works is proof that we do not truly love God.
Titus 1:16, “They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.”
A Born Again Christian is a New Man In Christ.
To be a born again Christian you need to have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior. When you are in Jesus you are a new creature. 2nd Corinthians 5;17 advises us that if we are of Christ we are a new creature and old things have passed away.
2nd Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
