BECOME A BETTER YOU

MAIN TEXT: 2 CORINTHIANS 6:17
“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you”.

JEREMIAH 29:13 “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.”

Beloved of God, for you to be really redeemed of the Lord, you must adopt a new way of living.
One thing that can come upon a new creature in Christ is the departure from curses to blessings.

Apostle Paul encourages us to be transformed rather than being conformed to this world of sin (Romans 12:1-2). The truth of the matter is that only those who are in Christ can experience the new things God promises us in His word.
“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).

When a person accepts Jesus as His or Her Lord and Saviour, such a person automatically become dead to the old life, every link with the old life is cut off. Every new creature in Christ submits to His Lordship.
From the point of rebirth, we begin to hunger for righteousness by pursuing purity, honesty, justice, love, humility and service to humanity. It starts from a new mind. You immediately begin to think differently from the old ways to such an extent that your new behavior and a better you may seem strange, even to you. This new life in Christ comes with the assurance of abundant life here on earth and even in heaven.

THE LIFE THAT IS TRANSFORMED BY CHRIST STANDS OUT

PRAYER: Father, as a new creature in Christ, please help me to always live according to your word in Jesus Name. Amen.

LIVE TO SERVE

MAIN TEXT: 2 Corinthians 12:15 ‘’So I will so very gladly spend for you everything I have and expend myself as well.

Galatians 6:2 ‘’Carry each other’s burdens and in this way you will fulfil the law of Christ.’’

You have never started living until you learn and begin to serve others. It is good that you exist but unfortunate, if that is the only thing recorded in your name. To really live, you must be able to impact on others around and within your reach. Service incorporates all that we do to affect people’s lives. Real accomplishment comes, when we spend our lives for other people’s good. Lift your attention from self and center it on adding value to the next person beside you.

Look around you and locate those hurting in one area or the other that you can bless. It is not about how much, but how well. Words of encouragement and comfort can travel a great deal to heal broken hearts. Some people are just going through the passage of time without any relevance to humanity or the kingdom of God. While the bible clearly teaches self-worth, it denounces self-interest. When we obsess about ourselves, we lose the meaning of life which is, to love, serve God and others.

Without commitment and service, our individual lives will be barren and sterile. Without service, our lives will lack meaning and purpose. Jesus taught that the only way to live abundantly is to die to self and give yourself fully to God, and to those who need what God has given you.

‘’WHEN YOU LIVE TO SERVE OTHERS, GOD RAISES MEN TO SERVICE YOU’’

PRAYER: Mighty God, help me to be a channel of encouragement to people I come across in any way I can.
