VerseD: Galatians 5:24

And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
Galatians 5:24, ESV

God accepts us for who we are, and then He changes us. We still have our personality, but the things we want and the way we think about things should change.

Let God change your desires. Put them on the cross, and walk with the risen Lord daily.

We are made new in Christ. We should no longer live by what we have known and thought, or by what the world says, but by what God says through His Word and Holy Spirit.

Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

If it helps, tell a trusted Christian brother or sister.

VerseD: Proverbs 16:18

Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.
