Let me be clear that I am not saying we will never choose to sin or never need to repent once we are born again. All it takes to sin is a free will and the capacity to believe the lies of the enemy, and believers possess both. We may indeed choose to sin, and consequently need to repent. What I am saying is that we don’t naturally sin because we no longer have a sin nature that is married to the Law. Our old nature has been crucified with Christ, we are new creations married to Christ in the New Covenant.
Those of us who know God are not in a war with our flesh, however we do have a devious, evil enemy who is a sinner. He is endlessly accusing the Body of having his own wicked nature. He is trying to get us to believe him, to forget who we really are and to disqualify ourselves from our divine destiny of putting him under our feet.
EMBRACE YOUR TRUE IDENTITY
So today I want to encourage you to embrace your identity as a saint, repent from any partnership you’ve made with the lie that you’re a sinner, and begin walking in the freedom that Jesus purchased for you! If this is a new revelation for you, I encourage you to declare this over yourself today: “I am a saint. I am a new creation. My natural tendency is to please God. I am free from the life of sin and shame! I bless my soul to be lead by my spirit and Holy Spirit into all righteousness!”
Is it easy for you to believe you’re a saint? I’d love to hear your insights in the comments!
