Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.
What this means is that those who become Christians become new persons. They are not the same anymore, for the old life is gone. A new life has begun!
Now we look inside, and what we see is that anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is created new. The old life is gone; a new life burgeons! Look at it!
So if any man is in Christ, he is in a new world: the old things have come to an end; they have truly become new.
So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
