470. A New You

Many believers, who in reality have been made brand new in Jesus Christ, still carry some of the old ideas about themselves that were true of them before they came to know Christ. The Old Covenant scriptures say that the heart is "deceitful and desperately wicked," and so believers continue to believe that that is true of them, even in Christ. What they don't realize is that in Christ we've been given a NEW heart, and our new heart is not wicked or deceitful - it's holy, righteous and sanctified! Many believers also refer to themselves as merely a "sinner saved by grace," not realizing that in Christ their identity is no longer "sinner," but "saint"! In Christ, we've been made new, and it's very liberating when we begin to understand these core things about our true identity in Christ.
