“A New Creation….”

Therefore, if anyone is in union with Christ, he is a new creation; the old things passed away; look! new things have come into existence.
================================
After the sixth creative period, or “day,” Jehovah ceased from earthly creative activity.

But he has accomplished grand things in a spiritual way. For example, the apostle Paul wrote: “If anyone is in union with Christ, he is a new creation.”  To be “in” or “in union with” Christ here means to enjoy a oneness with him as a member of his body, his bride.

For this relationship to come into existence, Jehovah God draws the individual to his Son and begets such a one with holy spirit. As a spirit-begotten son of God, he is “a new creation,” with the prospect of sharing with Jesus Christ in the heavenly Kingdom.
