Christians are new Creations

Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. (2 Corinthians 4:1-2)

The apostle Paul had the ministry of preaching to the Gentiles.

He admitted that he was not sufficient of himself for the task. His sufficiency came from God through His Spirit. (2 Corinthians 3:4-5)

The Christian life is from faith to faith. We all received mercy and grace from God from time to time. 

Christians are fallible. But true Christians will always come back to the faith. They will be filled with the Holy Spirit and walk in step with the Holy Spirit.

They will denounce their sins and turn to God in repentance and faith.

They will pursue purity, honesty, justice, righteousness, and truth.

They will lead others by good examples, and guide them by the truths of the Word of God.

They will live and love by the Spirit of God.

Christians are new creations in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17).

They will live in newness of life in the Spirit of God.
