2 Corinthians 5:17 (NLT)
This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person.
The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
God has made you a new person, with a new purpose. The old you is gone. You are not that person any more. God has pulled you out of darkness and into His marvelous light. You are now someone different.
The work of Christ is not for you to accept who you are, but become who you were meant to be.
