When Adam was created in the image of God, He called it very good. He was perfect. Sin marred that perfect creation with the stain of sin.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
Galatians 6:15 For neither circumcision counts for anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation.
Through Jesus Christ’s redemptive work on the cross, that stain of sin is removed. While still in an imperfect state of humanity, God remakes us into a new creation. This is the first step in complete perfection that comes when we are given resurrected bodies in eternity. It is such a blessing to be able to be God’s new creation – His handiwork – in this life… representing God to others as we live for our Redeemer each day.
