If all things become new why do I continue to struggle with sin? I thought everything was supposed to be new?
What became new was the spiritual me. When we are born again we are regenerated. Spiritually we go from being walking dead men to having life in Christ. When we are born again we are birthed spiritually.
As baby Christians we have to start from scratch. We have to renew our minds and then we can begin to overcome the vices of our flesh.
