When will we as Christians get it? We are no longer the DNA of our parents, but we are new creatures in Christ.
2 Cor. 5 V 16-17.....Therefore, from now on, we regard no one accoring to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new....
Do you see the first part of that passage of scripture? "From now on, we regard no one according to the flesh"
Can you understand that statement? You are no longer of the flesh. You have been made new through Christ whose blood covers everything. It doesn't matter who your parents were, or who you were for that fact. It doesn't matter if there was alcoholism, abusive behavior, sexual proscuity, drug abuse, it just doesn't matter, that is no longer who you are or who you are a part of.
You are now a part of the body of Christ. If you believe what you read in the word of God, then you have to accept that. Which means quit talking about the childhood you had, or the way you lived your life prior to becoming a Christian. When you constantly talk about something you lift it up as to give it praise and worship.
When will we start praising GOD and thanking Him for who we are? When will we start claiming Him as our Father? When will we start giving Him credit for who we are? When will we accept the blood of Christ in our new lives? If we can not accept the blood and what it stood for, and all that it covered, then we have not fully accepted Christ as our Savior.
Start now today, claiming your new life, your new you, your new beginnings, your new family, your new inheritance. Start today, praising and worshiping Him as your Father and give Him the glory for who you are "FROM NOW ON".......
