a new creation….

God has  provided a way  for everyone to be with Him in Zion…. the way He has provided… is His Son, Jesus.  When we are  in Christ... we are in God… in Zion.  The scripture seems pretty clear to this old fella.

If any man is in Christ, he is a new (creature) creation: the old things are passed away; behold, they are become new.  But all things are of God. (2 Corinthians 5:17,18 ASV)

Sparks said:   “The all-inclusive rule of the new creation is that  all things are of  (out from)  God.”  

This is not rocket science… when Philip was  born again by the Holy Spirit, he started life all over again… a completely transformed person… a new creature… a whole new creation… and God’s process began to conform Philip to the image of His Son.  Too often we miss (I certainly missed it back in 1968) that the  “many sons in one Son” … all looking like Jesus … is what Father is after… it is the way that He is going to  fill this whole earth  with His glory…  fill this whole earth  with His many sons.

The missing piece for me (back then) was… that I needed to see that  everything  that ever happened in my life was  from God… all things  were and are  of God… they are  out from  God… they are specifically  designed  to bring Philip to the end of himself…  in every area of his life…  as Father  conforms Philip  to the image of His Son.

Philip has been at it for almost 50 years now…. it is a  one day at a time  process… a few steps forward… a few steps backwards… an inch at a time…  but it works… Philip is slowly changing into the image of His Son….  and so very  thankful  for that.
