Behold! I Make All Things New

Behold

Behold! Christ makes all things new by taking away the old, sinful nature and making us new creations in His image. We become image bearers of His likeness.

Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come! ~2 Corinthians 5:17 AMPC

Behold! It is amazing to find that beholding Christ can transform us into His very nature. We adopt His perspective and are forever changed for the better.

And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit. ~2 Corinthians 3:18 AMPC

As you behold Christ in His Holiness, and declare He is worthy, may you be encouraged, inspired, and transformed into His likeness.

10 thoughts on “Behold! I Make All Things New”

  1. As my heart is breaking, I must believe it’s true:
    from sorrow Christ is making all things bright and new.
    My doggy friend is going, twelve years passed all too soon,
    while outside cows are losing, coyotes howling to the moon.
    My world will soon be colder, a piece pulled from my heart,
    soul suddenly years older; oh, Lord, please play your part
    that one day we’ll meet again in rainbows, free of tears and pain!

    1. I’m glad that you have twelve years of blessed memories together, Andrew! I’m sad to hear that you are losing his presence. May the Lord give you grace in the transition from this world, and comfort.

  2. I’m so thankful Jesus allows us to both “behold” and to “hold” the nature of His very person in these fragile, earthen vessels. Thanks for the reminder of Christ’s transforming power at work in us. Blessings!
