From the moment you receive God’s grace and mercy (which resulted in forgiveness of sin through the faith he placed in you) you become a new creation.
Now you live by faith and not by your old self, known as the flesh, that formerly followed the passions and lusts of the flesh.
Still, you have choices to make and living by God’s laws, precepts and statutes will not come easy. All of us will take a step back from time to time.
During these moments of irrational behavior we end up going back to the same body that failed us through sin. Do not expect anything positive or good to come from what we call, “back sliding”.
Living by faith is realizing that Jesus is with us guiding us by his Spirit which is unseen. Write that down and always remind yourself of its meaning because the second you take your mind off of God, things start to unravel.
The world wants you to focus on this type of mindset because Satan is the temporary ruler of the world and knows his time to deceive weak persons is limited.
Today, Live By The Holy Spirit and experience peace, joy and righteousness from which only come from God.
Jesus knows what all your needs are and is ready to heap blessings on you. What you need to do is set your mind on things above.
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.
2 Corinthians 5:17
