This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! 2 Cor 5:17. When we invite Jesus into our heart we are totally renewed, our past is wiped clean and our Spirit becomes alive to God. Jesus begins to change us from the inside out. What we did in the past no longer feels right in our Spirit, and if we do what we did in the past, we feel conflicted and lose our peace. Our Spirit knows it wasn’t right, even though it may have been pleasurable for a moment. God takes away the desire for the things that have held us bound in the past, and for those things He knows can trip us up. As we rest in Him and trust Him, He will give us the strength to break free from any struggles we may still be working through. Praise God today that Jesus has made us brand new so that we can step into the wonderful plans purposes God has for our life.
