I just wanted to remind you that you are a new creation in Christ. You are being re-created.
You have a past but you are no longer defined by it.
You are not who you used to be or what happened to you or what you did to others.
You are not obligated to continue making decisions according to who you used to be.
Who are you?
You are a sinner saved by grace, redeemed by love and filled with power.
You are a new creation, developing new skills, new dreams, new purpose and new hopes.
You have a future before you that is guided by God, provided by Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
You are not who you were but you are on your way to who you are going to be.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! (2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV)
