Being born again does not make you perfect. You’re still walking around in your human suit. But that doesn’t mean that you stay in your old mindsets. The very minute you commit to Jesus, He begins whispering for you to draw closer to Him. You are changed by proximity to Him.
But that change is not over night. It’s a continual progression to holiness through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit. (Titus 3:5) Notice the verb tense? It’s current and ongoing. When you learn one lesson, you’re on to the next one. Over time, your old attitudes of anger, resentment, fear, selfishness, and hurt are replaced by love, peace, joy, and kindness. He will make you into the real you.
Nothing happens, however, until you ask. That amazing gift of salvation comes fully loaded with everything you need to be renewed inside and out, but only when you dive in. You have to open yourself to the Holy Spirit for Him to regenerate and renew you. If you don’t believe He is active to do that, then you lose.
If you will put yourself in God’s hands, He will heal and bless. He loves you fully and completely. He wants you to be happy and blessed. Give Him a chance. Allow Him to do what you haven’t been able to do your whole life. Let Him make you truly happy. It’s your decision.
