2 Corinthians 5:17 
"Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things are passed away, behold, all things have become new"

1 John 4:15 says that whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwells in him and he in God. I've confessed that Jesus is the Son of God, so I'm in Christ. Now according to 2 Corinthians 5:17 I am a new creature, a new creation by God!

New! I like new things. I would rather have new items than antiques. Some people really like antiques, but to me, they look like what they are, used and old. It doesn't say that God painted over me to try and make me new, holy, or worthy. It says that He has made me a new creature, ALL the old is gone and all of me has become new. You won't "see" this new you with your physical eyes, the new you is the spiritual you, the real you. When we die physically, our flesh perishes but our spirit lives on. It is our spirit that has become new. We are now righteous, blameless, holy, and worthy! So when Satan tries to remind you of the "old" you, tell him to take a hike because you are NEW and ALL of the old is gone AND you are IN Christ and He is IN you!
