Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 2 Corinthians 5:17 esv
In Christ you are not your past. New life in Jesus is an awesome thing the think about. We have to try and wrap our minds around this spiritual rebirth. We may look and feel the same naturally, but we have been made new in our spirits. We have joined Christ in dying to sin and thus have risen with Him into this new life. We don’t just feel new. We don’t just act new. We are made new. Children on God, we have been born again.
Old things are passed away. Your past is just that. The past. Nothing you’ve ever done can define or enslave you. The most vile and wretched person can be new in Christ. He has transformed murderers. He has saved adulterers. He will save and transform anybody. Do you want to live this new life? Understand that you are dead to sin. It has no power. Enjoy and rest in the fact that you have been reborn spiritually in Christ.
