The Christian life involves not just believing something about Christ but also believing something about us. We must believe that we are indeed part of Christ’s new creation. Our faith in Christ must include believing that we are exactly what the Bible says we are. Our personal self-image should be primarily positive. This does not mean feeling good about ourselves on the basis of our own achievements or virtuous behavior. This would be sinful pride. The Christian self-image means looking at ones self in the light of God’s gracious work of forgiveness and renewal.
