“13 For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh.
14 But God forbid that I should glory, save in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by Whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.
15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.” Galatians 6:13-15
It is the NEW CREATURE, the creature created by the power of the Holy Spirit upon faith in the Cross of Christ that will availeth much in the Kingdom of God. The NEW CREATURE who walks in the Spirit and not after the lusts of the flesh that will have fruit unto God.
This new creature is not a product of rehabilitation but is a regenerated man. It is the Born Again experience, being born of the Spirit, that gives us the ability to live unto God. The regenerated man is given a Divine Nature as the Holy Spirit dwells in our hearts and draws us closer to Jesus. Old things pass away and all things become new for this new creature birthed in us by the Holy Spirit. Our faith in the Cross of Christ gives the Holy Spirit this latitude to perform HIS ministry in our heart.
Circumcision or uncircumcision avails us nothing. Nothing. Religious ceremonies are laid waste in every respect when the power of God raises up a new creature in what the world would throw away.
“1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
2 For the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the Law of Sin and Death.” Romans 8:1-2
There is but one way to be free from the power of the Law of Sin and Death and it is to purposefully place our faith IN the Cross of Christ for all that we need and walk in the liberty Christ has afforded us. Only the New Creature can do this. Only the New Creature can partake in this Divine Nature…not the rehabilitated creature. It is the power of the Cross that gives the Holy Spirit the legal means to perform His mighty work in our heart and that is why we MUST fight that fight of faith DAILY. Faith in Jesus Christ and Him crucified, be determined to know nothing else.
