A Special Kind of Miracle

There is one special miracle of creation that God still performs today: “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new” (2 Cor. 5:17).

The miracle of regeneration is the Holy Spirit’s genuine creation of a “new man” when a natural man receives the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ by faith and is “born again.” The marred image of God in him is thereby made new again. People who have been born again possess a “new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness” (Eph. 4:24).

And what God creates lasts forever. Things that are made may, under the curse, disintegrate and die; but not what God has created.

For example, the earth was created in the beginning, and though it has gone through and yet will go through many changes, it has been “established forever” (Ps. 78:69). Similarly, the sun, moon, and stars “were created”; and God “also established them forever and ever” (Ps. 148:6), though their structure also may undergo drastic changes.

Analogously, our bodies (assuming our souls have been born again) will be changed into immortal bodies like that of Christ (Phil. 3:21) and “shall never perish” (Jn. 10:28).

Every person who has been made a new creation through faith in Christ will join with all God’s angelic creation to praise our Creator saying, “You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created” (Rev. 4:11).
