I Am New

This video from Jason Gray does a great job of reminding us that we are accepted, loved, chosen and holy. To believe anything less is to believe a lie about yourself. You see, Jesus came to redeem the Father’s image and likeness in you. You are made new at the moment you realize your true identity in Christ. As He is, so are you in this world. Lyrics below.

Now I won’t deny
The worst you could say about me
But I’m not defined by mistakes that I’ve made
Because God says of me

I am not who I was
I’m being remade
I am new
I am chosen and holy and I’m dearly loved
I am new

Who I thought I was
And who I thought I had to be
I had to give them both up
Cause neither were willing
To ever believe

I am not who I was
I’m being remade
I am new
I am chosen and holy and I’m dearly loved
I am new
I am new

Too long have I lived in the shadow of shame
Believing that there was no way I could change
But the one who is making everything new
Doesn’t see me the way that I do
He doesn’t see me the way that I do

I am not who I was
I’m being remade
I am new
I am chosen and holy and I’m dearly loved
I am new
I am new

I am not who I was
I’m being remade
I am new
Dead to the old man, I’m coming alive
I am new
I am new

(Repeat 2)
Forgiven, beloved
Hidden in Christ
Made in the image of the Giver of Life
Righteous and holy, reborn and remade
Accepted and worthy
This is our new name

This is who we are now…
