You are new in Christ Jesus! When you said yes to Jesus, you actually said that your life matters and the past mistakes and hurts can’t influence you anymore. Don’t stumble over the ugly words of doubt that the enemy speaks! You do not have to live the way you used to because you are NEW in Christ! He doesn’t see your imperfections but instead He is concerned about your calling, your gift and your heart!
There are few things to know about being a new creation:
1. You are new and clean, don’t forget that – the enemy will try to constantly remind you that you are this old creation caught up in the things you used to do, because he want you to fail and wants to control you.
“Sin is no longer your master, for you no longer live under the requirements of the law. Instead, you live under the freedom of God’s grace.”
2. You can be happy – Some may think that life as a new creation will be boring and lonely in comparison to a secular type of life. But there is so much more joy and fulfillment in living a life for Christ, and it is not temporary, it is everlasting. God loves when His people enjoy life!
“So I recommend having fun, because there is nothing better for people in this world than to eat, drink, and enjoy life. That way they will experience some happiness along with all the hard work God gives them under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 8:15
3. It’s good to find accountability – If you still struggle with areas of your past, you need a trustworthy advisor who can help you stay encouraged and fight with you to conquer your past and embrace life and destiny for God!
Remember God sees you the way you are and you are special! He has the best for you! Know that the old has gone and we all are new in Christ!
