You can only truly know who you are by truly knowing God. first of all, because God is the one who made us. it is God’s word that reveals the truth about who we were meant to be. If your faith is in Jesus, if you have trusted Christ as your only hope before God, for this life and the next, then you are “new”.
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new.
Just as creation came into existence by the powerful word of God, a new creation has come through the powerful word that God speaks through the gospel to our hearts.
The human nature is in him, but as husband and wife, and head and members are one: and there is an open being in Christ at conversion, when a man believes in Christ. But an inward principle of grace, which is a creature, a creation work, and so not man’s, but God’s; and in which man is purely passive, as he was in his first creation; and this is a new creature, or a new man.
How To Know God
The old way of serving God, whether among Jews or Gentiles; the old legal righteousness, old companions and acquaintance are dropped. Including all other ungodly practices such as riches, learning and other religion.
Serving God through Christ by the Spirit, and from principles of grace; a new, another, and better righteousness is received and embraced. If any man is entered into the kingdom of God, into the Gospel dispensation, into a Gospel church state, it is only thru “in Christ”.
Behold, all things are become new”; to the one, and to the other; the Gospel dispensation is a new state of things; a new form of church state is erected, not national. the world, and anew embodied together; new ordinances are appointed, which were never in use before, as baptism and the Lord’s supper.
A new and living way is opened by the blood of Christ into the holiest of all.
we all hope for a better new start than that someday, but it won’t be in this world, unless you’re new start by God who gives us salvation.
