4. We Are Born Again 

Our body and soul ruined because of our sins are restored by the redemption done on the Cross. And this is why Saint Paul the apostle said, "knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin." (Romans 6:6). In addi-tion, on his epistle to the Corinthians, Saint Paul wrote, "therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new." (2 Corinthians 5:17). As Saint Paul mentioned, our Lord has made us new through His grace, gave us the new testament, and prepared new heaven and new earth for us (Mark 1:15, 2 Peter 3:13, Revelation 21:1).
