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.
In mighty name of Jesus my pass is over,an I want live in Jesus is my saviour he can change old things to new things,amen
THE OLD LIFE AND THE NEW
Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Colossians 3:5
Hoping to edify God’s people, and wishing the Glory of God, I would dare to contribute to today’s article, thinking over the following sentence:
“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”.
First of all we must believe that we are new creatures, that is to say, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in our soul. If effectively we consider that to live in Christ is gain. In this case we are sad and sorrow when we fail, turn back and commit an evil action we practiced in our former way of living. We really love the Lord and do not wish, nor want to go against his Will.
Our behaviour ought to change, we must behave properly looking to please our Lord, who is holy and wants us to live respectably and with order fighting against our earthly nature which bends us to do those things that we used to practice in the past, things that other people we know, practice. We are called and wish to please our Saviour by putting to death whatever belongs to our earthly nature.
When we love the Lord God, he is the first in our life and our soul, which is spirit like God, we fight against evil desires to other people, such as envy, hates, jealous of somebody, thing which look for our own welfare, or to leave us to rule by greed, looking for wealth as our god, instead of waiting for God’s providence to remedy our needs.
We ought to recognize our weakness and that the way of holiness is progressive. We go growing in holiness along all our life. We need to be closer to our Lord Jesus Christ in prayer every day. He loves us and wants to help us.
May we wait for Him looking for his glory. Amen.
