You Are What You Believe

15 Aug

Question: If I don’t have a sinful nature, why do I still sin?  1. Maybe you’re an unbeliever. 2. Maybe no one ever told you any of this…

C.S. Lewis once said, “You are what you believe.” If you believe you are still a sinner, you will manifest sin. If you believe you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, then you are going to manifest righteousness… Faith comes before the manifestation. Believe you’re a sinner; you’ll have sin. Believe you’re righteous; you’ll manifest righteousness. It is all a question of identity.
