E. G. White's Quotes on New Creation

O that the church was awake! O that all who profess the truth for this time were sanctified through the truth, that they might discern the designs of God, and understand their own individual responsibility to give the light to the world. The seed of truth will spring forth in a new creation, and souls will be converted to God. —The Review and Herald, February 21, 1893

Out of the heart are the issues of life. The inward fountain of life must be cleansed, purified. The will must yield its helm to the command of Christ. Paul, the great apostle, describes this as “putting on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.” [Ephesians 4:24.] The evidence we bear of this new creation in Christ Jesus is to love righteousness and to hate iniquity. —Letters and Manuscripts, 1899

The sinner who has been saved by grace is God’s “workmanship.” He is a new piece of humanity—a new creation. He is “created in Christ Jesus.” The apostle proceeds to point out the new responsibilities that accompany this new relationship. “Created,” he declares, “unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” —The Abiding Gift of Prophecy, p. 293

Only through faith in Christ's name can the sinner be saved. He is the head of the new creation. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. He is the prophet, priest, and king of all regenerate humanity. He is Immanuel, God with us. The eternal Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and of his fulness have all we received. He is the author and finisher of our faith. “As many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” —The Review and Herald, November 3, 1904

The miracle-working power of Christ's grace is revealed in the creation in man of a new heart, a higher life, a holier enthusiasm. God says: “A new heart also will I give you” (Ezekiel 36:26). Is not this, the renewal of man, the greatest miracle that can be performed? What cannot the human agent do who by faith takes hold of the divine power? —God’s Amazing Grace, p. 253

The germ in the seed grows by the unfolding of the life-principle which God has implanted. Its development depends upon no human power. So, it is with the kingdom of Christ. It is a new creation. Its principles of development are the opposite to those that rule the kingdoms of this world. Earthly governments prevail by physical force; they maintain their dominion by war; but the founder of the new kingdom is the Prince of Peace.... Christ implants a principle. By implanting truth and righteousness, He counterworks error and sin.... —God’s Amazing Grace, p. 17
