We have excepted a life within the body of Christ, we are no longer the person we were before Christ became our Lord and Savior. Sometimes however we, forget that we have been made new and that the person that we were before does not exist in God’s eyes.
So now, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith in His promises, we can have real peace with Him because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. – Romans 5:1 – The Living Bible
It is because of this that we are to strive to live lives that are both pleasing and productive to God. The people around us are good at reminding us of whom we use to be what we use to do, and that we really haven’t changed at all. This is very normal especially if these are the people we use to party with, or get high with. The important thing to understand that in Christianity the Christian does not need to convince anyone of who they have become in Christ. When you are truly striving to please God, He will change your lives in such a way that all those around us will know that Christ is real.
