The new birth experience is exactly what God says it is, a fresh beginning. When we are born again, we not only have our sins forgiven and our guilt removed, but we also receive the Holy Spirit, who comes to indwell us and live Christ’s life through us. We can never be what we were before, because we have been born into His life, with a new spirit and nature. And because of that, our desires and goals should be conformed to those that God has for us. ~Charles Stanley Bible Life Lessons.
Scripture tells us, “ if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17).
