The New Me

2 Corinthians 5:17 (ESV)

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come."

Am I the only one that wakes up and feels like the "old" me sometimes? I think that's the epic struggle in the daily walk of most followers of Jesus. I think I'm just now realizing that I'm a new person. When I received Jesus I was molded and changed by the Spirit. When I say new; I mean that I was made new in all the ways I needed to be. Now I can just be myself; because "myself" now has the nature, the likeness, and power of God. I don't have to generate any more righteousness... He's my righteousness. I don't have to be impressive... because God's already impressed with Jesus, and Jesus is in me. Lord, help me to live this today. Help me to live like the new me... the real me.
