Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV)
In Christ we have been made a brand new creation. The moment we are in Christ our spirit is recreated after the image of God in righteousness and true holiness. The task of every born again believer now is to bridge the gap between our perfect spirit in Christ and our imperfect soul. The soul—our mind, our will, and our emotions—must be brought into alignment with our new nature and identity according to the Word of God. Practially speaking, we renew the mind daily by meditating on and confessing our new idenity in Christ. This enables us to live more fully out of who we are in Him, giving us full access to the victory Jesus has already obtained for us.
