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.

POWER TO WITNESS

POWER TO WITNESS

Main Text: John 1:7 – The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through Him might believe

There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which He witnesseth of me is true – John 5:32 (KJV)

From our main text, it explains that Christ came as a witness (John 3:16) to tell us about the Love of God and by so doing, we shall have the hope of eternal life: If God hasn’t sent Christ to redeem man from sin and its destruction, we all would have perished. In every dispensation, in order to save a people, God will send a witness, an instrument of use in His hand for the sake of redeeming His people.

By witnessing, we are talking about testifying the power in the name and blood of Jesus Christ. God has conferred on us the authority and power to stand boldly and testify or share the gospel of truth: ‘For God has not given us the spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind’ – 2 Timothy 1:7.

In order to be good witnesses of Jesus Christ, we must show love and recognize that we have the support of the Holy Spirit: ‘you are not alone’. When we go out to witness, we are expected to only speak the truth in the word of God. Just as it happened with the disciples of Jesus, Peter stood and preached about the love of the Christ and the significance of His coming and 3,000 and 5,000 accepted Jesus Christ. You also have the ability and power to witness and fulfil the scripture of our second text – John 5:32.

REMEMBER, GOD SAVED YOU SO THAT THROUGH YOU OTHERS WILL BE SAVED

Prayer: Jesus Christ, give me the boldness to be a good witness about your love and the power in your name.
