Are you truly a “new creature”?

If you’re a Christian, how different are you to the rest of society? Are you the salt of the earth, a light on a hill, or indistinguishable from the non-believers?

Are you as concerned about money and possessions as they are? Are you sports-mad? Do you rush to the doctor at the slightest ailment, or do you immediately take it to the Lord in prayer? Do you worry about “global warming” like the non-believers, or do you simply trust in the One who controls the globe?

The Bible says if any man be in Christ he is a new creature. Old things are passed away, all things are become new. (2 Corinthians 5:17) That’s what God wants every believer to experience, but does our life demonstrate that?

He wants us to be different: a peculiar people who want more than a Saturday or Sunday visit to the church. He wants people who are rapt in Him, forgetting themselves.

We are to be an influence on those around us, so that they say: “How come nothing gets you down? Why are you so happy?” That is the opportunity to tell them why; to share Jesus.

We have the task of transforming Christianity from “just another religion” into supernatural faith. Dear friend, you are just as important in God’s eyes as those few who control everything from the church platform – but they’re unlikely to tell you so. There are no favourites with God. You can heal the sick, cast out demons and preach the gospel just as Jesus, the disciples and apostles did. The Bible says you can.

Don’t be merely a churchgoer – be a Christian!

If you ask for (and want) seven-days a week opportunities to minister as Jesus did, God will give them. If you devote all your time, your very life to the Lord, the promise is the same today as then – God will supply your need. (Philippians 4:19)

Even if you can’t give up your job, God will use you. All that is required is a willing heart.

Dear reader, the bottom line is you have to get serious with God. Develop a daily relationship with Him, know what He says, talk to Him daily – even while you’re walking down the street. Anywhere, any time.

Understand that Christianity is not merely “religion.” Instead of asking “What church do you go to?” we ought to be saying “Tell me about what you do for Jesus.”

Stop sitting in those conferences, seminars and church pews, and get into action for Jesus. Don’t be just a listener. Be a doer of the Word! Get some gospel tracts and go hand them out.

God wants Christians to influence the world around us. In Jesus’ name we are to be life-changers, resuscitators to a dying world, first-aiders to the many under satan’s thumb.

First, we have to be changed ourselves! God will do it if we want it.

I'm not in Private Messenger.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

"Are you the salt of the earth, a light on a hill, or indistinguishable from the non-believers?" That's a soul-searching question that we all need to really consider. Of course we all have to live in this world... but we ought to truly KNOW that we aren't OF this world. Great truths!
