Once we pass through the river of the Blood of Jesus Christ, we are no longer identified with our pasts. We immediately become identified as the people of God. The Blood of Jesus Christ washes away the stench of our former lives in “Spiritual Egypt”. We have a new identity as one united people. The Holy Spirit shifts us away from the fragmented tribal mentality which once governed our every activity. He, then, replaces it with the mind of Christ, which He cultivates as we daily encounter Him in the Word of God.
No longer slaves to sin, but we have now been identified as the people of God. No longer bound by the sin of this world, but filled with the power of the Spirit of the Living God to overcome the world through Jesus Christ. This is who we are. This is who we have become.
