Are we called new creature because we have two natures living in us

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. – 2 Corinthians 5:17.

While it is indeed true that when we get born again in addition to the old nature that we once walked we also come into a new nature. There a number of issues that surrounds our being born again that we need to understand in order to have a clearer understanding of what it means to be a new creature. The journey into becoming a new creature does not stop and leave us with two new natures vying for our attention in our walk of faith, if it did we would be in serious trouble. Yes when we become born again we come into a new nature in addition to the old nature, but that is not the end of the story, rather it is the beginning of a journey into being established as a new creature. Let us therefore take this journey together by exploring what it means to be declared a new creature.
