      New Purity – Justify by the blood of Jesus Christ. I am forgiven and accepted!
      New Identity – I no longer belong to myself, but Christ who lives in me. I am a child of God.
      New Inclination – I no longer desire for things to please my needs, but a new heart and a new spirit to seek God and the things of God.
      New Power – the provision of the Spirit of God to do God’s work, God’s way in and through His empowerment.

      New Purity – recognizes that we are forgiven and accepted by God through the blood of Jesus. It is a gift that cannot be lost. It makes sin less attractive and gives a desire to live in the light of God’s calling.
      New Identity – Our identity is in Christ. We are saints who sin, not sinners who sin. Our core identity is that we are Christian, children of God. Love touches the soul more deeply than evil. Our soul is defined by His love. That is our identity.
      New Inclination – a new appetite. A new heart that actually wants to do what the law requires. Indulgence of the Spirit, the new inclination/power.
      New Power – when the Spirit of God comes out of one person into another. When we see that all the provisions of the new covenant make it possible.
