- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
5:17 Therefore if any one be in Christ - A true believer in him. There is a new creation - Only the power that makes a world can make a Christian. And when he is so created, the old things are passed away - Of their own accord, even as snow in spring. Behold - The present, visible, undeniable change! All things are become new - He has new life, new senses, new faculties, new affections, new appetites, new ideas and conceptions. His whole tenor of action and conversation is new, and he lives, as it were, in a new world. God, men, the whole creation, heaven, earth, and all therein, appear in a new light, and stand related to him in a new manner, since he was created anew in Christ Jesus.
2Co 5:17 If any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature. Because, crucified with Christ, buried into his death, we have died with Christ, and risen to walk in a new life (Ro 6:6,4,14). Born anew, we are new creatures who must live a new life. Old things are passed away. The old life ended when we died and were buried. All things have become new. The affections, the motives, the thoughts, the hopes, the whole life.

The word of God is beautiful is truth!
His word is revealing to those that are in Christ who we are!
Because of what Christ has done not what we are striving to be.

I have noticed most Christians have no trouble believing (trusting in, relying on or adhering to) all the miracles that God performed through Christ including raising Lazarus after being dead for three days and rotting, healing the blind,lame and sick. No problem believing that the Holy Spirit created the entire universe out of nothing just to name so few. But have difficulty trusting in relying on and adhering to (believing) that God can make any person that comes to him with Godly sorrow and a repentant heart could be supernatural/spiritual made a new creation with all the rights and privileges as Jesus Christ their Lord and Savior.
Our adversary hides or steals the truth that all true disciples of Christ's are totally cleansed, given a new heart of flesh, new spirit,inputed with Christ's righteousness and if that was not enough given God's agape nature and authority over Satan via the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Talk about gifts that we did not earn or deserve!

2 Corinthians 5:17 is the part of scripture that gives sinners the hope that God still love them, and he has given them the chance of second birth.
