The New Identity

5 Dec

The New Identity…

When God brought the first Jewish settlers back to Israel, they were largely from Russia and Eastern Europe. Many were raised in a world of books and rabbinic Judaism. Now they had to roll up their sleeves, get shovels, ploughs, hammers, and learn to work the soil.

They were doing what was completely foreign to them. And yet, it was this new life which was their true calling. Israel was their true land, their true home – and this was their true life.

In the same way, when you’re born again, you’re given a new identity – holy, godly, pure, and victorious. And you might feel that this isn’t the real you – that the real you is the old you; the sinful, ungodly one who never measured up.

But just as it was for the first Israelis, so for you – you may be more familiar with the old you, because it’s all you’ve known. But the old you isn’t the real you – the new you is. Start believing it and start living it – you are a spiritual Israeli.

Rid yourselves of all the offenses you have committed, and get a new heart and a new spirit. Why will you die, people of Israel? Ezekiel 18:31

Make it your aim to embrace your true life in Jesus – believe it and live it!

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
