“See, Everything Has Become New!”

Paul is convinced that in and through Christ we have died to an old way of being and have been raised to a new creation.  Everything has been changed!  Paul here is using the same language Revelation uses as it paints a picture of the old world passing away and a new, transformed world appearing.  Paul isn’t suggesting it will happen or it might happen, but proclaims that for those living in Christ it already has happened.  What will it mean to live in this completely new reality?
