My precious sisters - God has been revealing so much to me these past few months about who I am in Christ. Being a Christian for almost 30 years it fascinates me and encourages me how He keeps teaching and correcting!
I have always read the verses about how we are new creations in Him (2 Corinthians 5:17) and how according to Galatians 5:1 which says, "Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage."
How easy it is to get entangled in the bondages of sin, self-condemnation and thinking we are not worthy of His great love. And guess what - we aren't of ourselves but through His Precious Son's death on the cross we ARE made worthy and can say we are heirs alongside with Christ (Romans 8:17).
My sisters, do you realize that if you have accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior, you have already begun living your eternal life with HIM! Put that into perspective! We do not have to wait until death to enjoy our eternal life. Our spirits are already there. Ladies, we are no longer sinners but saints that sin!
Cease living your lives as defeated believers and live according to the life God has called us to live - victorious children of God!
We are indeed new creations - old things are passed away!
