Your New Nature

Description

Realize who you are. If you are born again, you are a new creature in Christ Jesus, and it is not in your nature to be afraid.

As human beings, we are constantly confronted with opportunities to fear.  People have fears concerning their health, their finances, terrorism, relationships, their jobs…the list is almost endless.

I want to challenge you with a thought today, and it is simply this: Realize who you are. If you are born again, you are a new creature in Christ Jesus, and it is not in your nature to be afraid.

Consider what the Bible says in 2 Timothy 1:7,

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

Which points to our problem with fear. We listen to our heads, and we listen to our flesh, rather than listening to our spirit. As a result, our lives can be overwhelmed with fear.

I want to challenge you today to listen to your spirit instead of your head. The real you on the inside is made after the image of God. Once you realize who you are and what you are made of, it will help deliver you from fear.  Consider these verses that talk about the real you:

  • Ephesians 4:24, And that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.
  • 2 Corinthians 5:17, Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

When you understand your true nature, that you are made after the image of God, you will know freedom from fear.
