Key Scripture: 2 Corinthians 5:17
Many of us still think, “We are what we do.” We say and do bad things or make mistakes, then come to the conclusion that this defines our identity. The bible says the opposite! “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” Yes, we do commit specific sins, but we can have a new identity. At the core of the good news of the Gospel is what has often been called the “great exchange” Jesus takes our sin and he gives us his righteousness.
We might be tempted in the morning to stand in front of our mirror and recite, “You’re not strong, you’re not beautiful, you’re not smart, and people don't like you!” Instead, we should recite 2 Corinthians 5:17!
