A WHOLE NEW IDENTITY
For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. (Colossians 3:3)
“Once you are lost in Christ, the devil can’t even find you!” – Mark Hankins
I believe the moment you receive Christ you become a new creation in Him. It takes a while to feed on the Word before you say, “I’m not even the same person anymore. I have a whole new identity.”
If you witnessed a crime and the FBI got hold of you and wanted to give you a new identity to protect you, they would change your address, your Social Security number, and all records concerning every bill that you owe. They would totally wipe out your past to protect you.
God wiped out your old identity when you were born again. He wiped out your past. Every account, sin, or claim the devil had on you has been wiped out. Once you are lost in Christ, the devil can’t even find you! Hallelujah!
The devil can’t find you unless you stick your fleshly head up and say, “Hey, it’s me!” Slap your head and get it back down in there, man! You want to talk about my past, my feelings, and my failures? God says, “I don’t want to talk about that. You are dead and your life is hid with Christ in Me. You’ve got a new identity now.”
Confession: I am dead to sin and my past. My life is hid with Christ in God. I am lost in Christ!
