2 CORINTHIANS 5:17
NEW CREATURE ALTOGETHER
KJV ... Therefore if any man (person) be in Christ (the Anointed One and His anointing), he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
AMP. ... If any person in in Christ (the Anointed One and His anointing), he is a new creature altogether. The old previous moral and spiritual condition has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!
NLT ... Anyone who belongs to Christ (Jesus) has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun.
THE MESSAGE ... Anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is created new. The old life is gone; a new life burgeons!
I had to look up the meaning of this word and it means ... "our new life is a bud or shoot that begins to grow and to send forth shoots and other new growth."
