About Finding the New You Series
Revelation is given in the practical places. Every life experience is buried treasure for discovery of who God is and what Jesus has given: a whole, new YOU.
Matthew 15:19-20a NASB
For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, slanders. These are the things which defile the man.
What happens to us does not cause our sin. The ‘victim mentality’ is Satan’s deception and it is rampant today. He pulled it with Eve and convinced her she was a victim of God, the withholder of blessings. To blame another for sin keeps the sin alive.
This is the renewal of thinking that sets us free to discard the old, completely corrupt ‘self’: I am fully and completely responsible for what comes OUT OF MY HEART, for what I have done, said and thought.
