If God made us a NEW CREATION in Christ and we are now the righteousness of God, IN CHRIST (2 Cor. 5), why do we still struggle with sin? If we are right now as believers ‘complete in Christ’ (Colossians 2), why do we still sin? What is this struggle IN OUR MIND between good and evil still hounding us.
You see, in the Spirit believers have been recreated. Believers are Born Again in the Spirit (John 3, Colossians 2, Romans 6, Ephesians 1:13-14) from the very moment of our belief on Christ and His once for all sacrifice for the sins of the whole world (1 John 2:2). Yet, our bodies have not yet been reborn and recreated. That will not happen until resurrection day when our bodies will be transformed into the very image of Christ. Glorified without sin forever. And so, our thought processes and beliefs in r mind still have a sinful bent. Apostle Paul tells us that our number one goal as believers is to RENEW OUR MIND by the Word of God. Renewing our mind and changing our mind about everything according to the truth of God’s Word is the very definition of the word REPENT. Because, if we believe right in the mind, that works outwardly into our lives.
Watch as Pastor Dr. Ralph Yankee skillfully shows by the Word of God the truth and reason believers still struggle with sin.
