Terms of Identity

ListenListen to Today’s Audio Goodie
(Have the Goodie read to you!)

To better grasp the fullness of our union with the Lord Jesus Christ, it is important for us to understand related terms. Here are a few words related to our identification in the Lord Jesus Christ, along with their brief definitions.

The Old Man (i.e., the old humanity) – This is our old (or, former) identity which was in Adam (not our physical body, which is the God’s temple).

New Man (i.e., the new humanity) – This is our new (or, present) identity in Christ.

Body of Sin – This is the total collective unit of our sins (as in “body of evidence”; not our physical body, which is the Gods temple).

The Flesh – Although our body is referred to as “flesh,” the term “the flesh” is synonymous with our former identity in Adam (i.e., the “old man”).
