Identity Drives Behavior.

Series: Atomic Habits | Week 3: Breaking Up With Bad Habits

Read 2 Corinthians 5:17

“This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”

1. How does this verse speak to our identity in Christ?
2. If you are in Christ, how have you been changed?
3. How does this verse describe the gospel?

Who you are will dictate what you do. Therefore, it’s important to understand who you are in Christ. In 2 Corinthians 5:15, Paul says that when we receive new life from Jesus, we no longer live for ourselves but for Christ. This new life is a gift we get to receive. Be encouraged to invite or reinvite Jesus to change who you are so you can break free from your bad habits. Start with God’s Word. It is deeply transformative and incredibly practical to help you live out your new identity rooted in Jesus. Pray and ask God to help you reject your old life and cling to your new life daily.
