“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come” – 2 Cor 5:17 (NIV)
In days old there used to be believers who had the habit of going out and sharing that by accepting Christ their lives had turned around. They were once drunkards but no longer. Once promiscuous and adulterous now in committed relationships. Once partaker of bribes now holding high the banner of honesty at the workplace. Once full of raging anger but now showcasing a life of grace.
They proclaimed what had happened is having accepted Christ they had let him turn their lives around. Even friends noticed and amazed at the change decided to commit their lives to Christ. What a witness.
We do not see or hear much of that these days. Rather, aside from calling people to salvation many a preacher these days concentrate on heaping one with blessings, little mentioning how Christ will change one’s life and attitudes towards things like money. Yet the truth of the matter is that when Christ comes into our lives He changes us into something new. We then begin a remarkable journey with Him.
Prayer for today: Lord Father in heaven, today I pray that because of accepting you help me lead a changed life!
