Fighting to Be Who You Are

When we believe in Jesus it's not just "well I'm still a dead sinner who just loves Jesus now." No, actually, I've been reborn. I'm a brand-new creature. Yes, I'm still a sinner, but I'm a redeemed sinner. I'm also a saint. I'm also part of the priesthood of believers... I'm not a slave to my sin anymore. That's not who I am.
