People act according to who they think they are. When you are gripped with the reality of who you are in Christ, you will begin to act consistently with your new nature. You can either walk by sight and say, “I don’t feel holy,” and beat yourself to death with guilt, or walk by faith and say, “God says I am holy; therefore, I am going to accept that truth by faith and act like it. I am a child of God, totally forgiven; I will live consistent with my new nature because that is who I am!”
Edit: Why is it that lately when I put up my “Currently Reading” gizmo, it only says “Currently?” Are we supposed to fill in the blank or what? Anyone else having this problem?
