2 Corinthians 5:17 says” Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
As far as the beginning of time people have been trying to become a better person, they’ve read books about it they been to sociologist about it they’ve even taken classes, they’ve changed their appearances they’ve changed their name they had cosmetics surgery, I mean people have done everything that they can possible think of, from relocating to new circle of friends. And nothing has worked and yet they still don’t know how to make themselves a better person.
Can one really make themselves a to be a better person, in all honesty I have to say NO! I have always thought that it was possible, I stand corrected, I was wrong. Until a person is changed from the inside out they will never be a better person, they may appear to be a much better person, they may appear to be better than what they use to be, but only Jesus Himself can change us. This is why so many people struggle in society because they are trying to figure out who they really are, only Jesus can define who we are.
