The unconverted man is the “old” thing that dies once we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. We cannot change the world we live in, but we can change what is acceptable to us as Christians in our new nature. In the scripture, Minister Cassandra Jones explains that “if” represents a conjunction and requires participation from us if we are to be a new creature. As a new man, we are not exempt from sin, but our desire to have a relationship with Christ will the attraction to sin. The devil will attack us, the flesh will tempt us and the demands of our faith will try us. We must remember that when we face the temptations of our old life, we can stand on the foundation of our Christian Life to remain strong in our faith.
2 Corinthians 5:17
