2 Corinthians 5:17 This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; and new life has begun!
When I woke up this morning Rita, a friend of mine had posted this:
SURRENDER-"the more we let God take us over, the more we truly ourselves we become- because he made us. He invented all the different people that you and I were intended to be... It is when I turn to Christ, when I give up myself to his personality, that I first begin to have a real personality of my own." C. W. Lewis
Then I read this verse in my Bible reading... wow!! How timely!
What I do know from my experience is that the closer I get to God, the more the personality He gave me works in my life for the good!! Before I knew God like I do now it seemed to trip me up and make me feel different. Now it just makes me feel special... it works in ways that matter. The more I know God the more I am able to become the person He intended me to be. God didn't give me my personality for the world, to fit into the world, God gave me my personality to bring glory to Him.
