Remember those moments when we were completely away from our Creator, where we lived a life without a route, without direction, where we did everything we wanted and we let ourselves be carried by any wind, yes it was a disorderly life dear brothers, but just like that light shined Paul of Tarsus that light also shined us and today we are no longer a shadow of what we were before but we have a new life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The Bible tells us:
5 Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.
6 Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.
7 You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived.
The truth is that we are in this world but we are not from this world and the Bible tells us that other times we are pilgrims and foreigners in this world, that our citizenship is in heaven and that therefore we should not cling to the things of this world.
The greatest miracle that God has done in us is to transform us in such a way that our old life no longer takes place in our new lives and that is why we can not even think of retreating.
We have to make old things die every day, things that do not please God because if we live is for Him, if we breathe is for Him and in that same feeling everything we do must be for the glory of our King and Lord Jesus Christ.
The Bible also tells us:
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
2 Corinthians 5:17
We are already in Christ and we are new creatures, since our old life passed and we live a completely new life in Christ and we do not regret it because living in Christ is gain and nothing in this world has more value.
May the Lord Jesus help us to be steadfast every day of our lives.
