“Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” – 2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV)
Living the new life is only found in Jesus Christ. No matter who you are even if you think you are the worst criminal on Earth, you still could enjoy the new life in Christ (John 3:16).
Expressing a simple faith in Jesus Christ and accepting Him as your Lord and personal Savior give you access to the new, wonderful life. Your old nature is supplanted by the nature of Christ, so God does not see you as a criminal anymore but a child of His whose past does not exist. It is now dependent on you to accept the truth and walk in the newness of life by faith (Romans 1:17).
Remember, now that you have Jesus Christ in your life, the Holy Spirit comes to live in your heart and gives you the ability to do the will of God, which can be found in His Word.
Dear beloved, if you are born again, you can overcome sin and live in righteousness (Romans 6:14). Your spirit begins to crave the things of God, so let the Holy Scriptures be your daily meditation so that you can know the will of God and His purpose for your life. After discovering it, go ahead and live it to the fullest. Cut off old friends and materials that want to drag you into your old life.
On the contrary, make new friends who are living the Christian life, and get materials such as music, videos, books, etc., that will enhance your new life of righteous, peace, and joy (Romans 14:17). Hallelujah! Enjoy your new life!
Prayer Point: Dear heavenly Father, I’m grateful for the new life you have given me in Christ Jesus. Please lead me to get closer to you in your Word and to find the right friends, people, and materials that will enhance my new life in Christ Jesus. Amen!
