Reformed faith salsa style

I thought of you when I read this quote from “The Gospel of Jesus Christ” by Paul Washer –

“Although we cannot properly set forth and describe all the benefits of salvation in a booklet, it is helpful for us to review a few of them. First, the Christian is regenerated. The Bible teaches us that all people are born spiritually dead and unwilling to respond to God in love and obedience (Romans 8:7; Ephesians 2:1). Those who believe in Christ, however, have been regenerated (Titus 3:5), or made spiritually alive (Ephesians 2:5), so that they might walk in newness of life (Romans 6:4). The believer is a new creation with a new heart that delights in God and desires to please Him (Ezekiel 36:26–27; 2 Corinthians 5:17; 1 John 5:3). This is the true meaning of the phrase “born again” (John 3:3; see also John 3:5; 1 John 5:1). We have not just changed our minds—God has changed our very natures! Second, the Christian is justified before God (Romans 5:1). This means that not only are we forgiven of all our past, present, and future sins but also that the perfectly righteous life of Christ is imputed to us, or credited to our account. Although we will still struggle with sin and frequent failures, God has legally declared us to be right with Him, and He treats us that way (Romans 8:33–34; 2 Corinthians 5:21)”
