In Christ, we are completely new. The old self is gone; it isn’t the true you anymore. I’ve found it’s hard to feel new sometimes: when you’re struggling with temptation, when you’ve exploded in anger, when you feel depressed…
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
But faith holds onto the fact that Christ made you a new creation — He didn’t clean up the old version; He replaced it with something better. The nagging feeling in your gut when you struggle should now be, ‘This isn’t who I am in Christ.’
Understanding who You are in Christ, who this new creature is, is the most important ingredient to battle the fear, insecurity or sin you face.
And in case right now, at this very moment, you could use a reminder of who you are in Christ…
You are more than a conqueror.
You have a spirit of power, love and a sound mind.
You are loved to the extreme.
You are not alone.
You have authority over evil.
Ask God to give you a revelation of who you are in Him. Just reading the words won’t make you understand your freedom; believing them will.
