“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” (2 Corinthians 5:17, NIV)
Once we have accepted Christ, we are no longer who we used to be. Our old nature has been crucified on the Cross with Jesus. We have nailed it to the Cross. Our new man is resurrected. We will still have problems keeping the two separated, but remember only the new man goes forward toward the purpose and plan that God has for your life. Don’t sacrifice your future by resurrecting your past.
