I was a liar, a cheat, a vandal, jealous, covetous, full of envy and selfishness. I was rebellious and then, when I was nine years old, I gave my life to Jesus.
Ok, so some of those things still temp me. I obviously have not lived a sinless life ever since I was nine years old. In fact new and bigger sins have come into my life from time to time. But what has changed is the state of my heart. I have a new heart. I have a heart that longs for things of God rather than things of the world. Even through my life I can see where God has changed me from who I was last year, and the year before and next year I won't be who I am today.
I'm not who I was. Are you?
