Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold all things have become new. II Corinthians
We all know who we are in the flesh, born a human being and growing up in the world. We have lots of evidence of who we are by our birth certificate, drivers license, Social Security card and our mother's testimony about our birth. But what about who we are when we become new creations in Christ?
Jesus told a religious leader that he must be born again to see the kingdom of God and so we all know that to enter eternal life we must be born from above, but upon our spiritual birth who are we? In order to walk in the Spirit one must know who he is in Christ to be able to live a supernatural life and fulfill his new destiny in the earth. Many, I am afraid don't have a clue about who they are and what they are called to do and so it is"Business as usual" never understanding their new calling in life.
When a baby is born of the flesh he must be fed and nurtured to be able to grow strong in this life and it is no different for the new creation, he must partake of the pure milk of the word that will allow him to grow up into a spiritual adult, trained, equipped and sent into the harvest. The old things of your past life will fall away as you progress in your new life in Christ!
Therefore, laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all evil speaking, as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby. I Peter 2:1,2
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
