We are good at telling ourselves lies. We re-tell the failures of the past so convincingly that they end up defining who we are today; but for those who have found themselves to be new creatures in Christ Jesus by His grace through the gift of faith, the lies must end. We must trust God to make us whom He’s promised to make us.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, behold, all things have become new (2 Corinthians 5:17).
Sadly, we fail to recognize how far-reaching and deeply-penetrating the new life in Christ truly is.
Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is (1 John 3:2).
