“If anyone is in Christ he is a new creation.” This is the “unseen” that we were urged to focus on last week. The point is that we can only know about a new life in Christ if we have experienced this ourselves. The bad news is we have to let go and die emotionally to our idols in this life in order to experience the new life.
· Like the scene from Raiders of the Lost arc where the hero has to step onto a glass bridge he can’t see
· This life is a training ground – a test of faith
· We are not just bodies – we are spirits that have a body and soul
· We need to understand how this works in practice and affects our new life in Christ
