We are not as we were, if we are in Christ, God re-makes us into the image of His son. The Bible tells us that Jesus’s death paid the price for our sins and when we put our faith in Him we are no longer slaves to our sin nature, but children of God. We are new and clean, pure before God.
II Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
The wonderful promise in this verse reminds us that we are no longer guilty before God for our sin. Jesus paid the price for us and promises to raise us up to be like Him.
