We are being transformed by the renewing of our mind.
How we feel about ourselves directly affects the decisions we make and the way we interact with the people around us. It is so important to find confidence in who we truly are, and that confidence is a gift of God for us through Christ.
True righteousness isn't cosmetic, it's not achievable from the outside-in, it's not something we can do or even really comprehend. Our righteousness is a gift from God through Jesus, and we are being transformed by Him from the inside-out.
