2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.
This is one of my favorite Bible verses. The night I got saved this is one of the verses that came back to me. God just reminded me that my old things (drinking, cussing, smoking...) were to be put away, I was a new creation! If my friends were to see me living as I was before I got saved, they would not see the Jesus in me. To me if I had continued to do those things, I believe they would have seen a distorted vision of Jesus. I wanted them to see that there was something different in my life! The difference is Jesus!
