“ Therefore, if any man be in Christ he has become a new creation. Old things are passed away, all things have become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)
How to renounce and defeat sin without self condemnation:
“O Lord I sense these sinful, or negative, disgusting, destructive, distorted thoughts that are roaming around in my mind. But instead of following them, or feeling defeated because I experience them, or condemning myself for their presence in my mind, I will affirm the truth of the new creation.
I know that these thoughts are in my flesh but they are not in my spirit so I will renounce them, and I will refuse to let them determine my feelings and actions. They are not who I am. They are not from me, nor do they reflect my true character. They are not part of me, for I am a new creation in Christ, and therefore I have your power to reject them and to keep them from dictating my emotions, actions, and reactions. Moreover, because I am a new creation I can replace them with a new set of faithful, loving, obedient, and wise thoughts that come from you through the Holy Spirit in me. These are the new thought patterns that actually fit my new character in Christ.”
