Coming To Christ Must Bring True Transformation

Christ has saved us not only to snatch us from the eternal consequence of sin but to make it possible for us to glorify God by serving Him in the beauty of holiness. Glorifying God is the main cause that should compel us to live a life that is God honoring.

A life that’s built on expressing our deepest appreciation, gratitude, and reverence to what Christ has done for us on the cross. If we’re in Christ, there must be a total transformation that takes place in our lives as a result (2 Corinthians 5:17).

How The Holy Spirit Has Transformed Believers

Before we were saved, our lives were like an utter wasteland filled with toxic wastes, which could not produce anything of great value in the sight of God due to sins. Therefore, Christ came in order to restore that land by taking care of the toxic wastes which are symbolic of our sins by His own blood on the cross. 

Then God sent His Holy Spirit in order to plow and fertilize that land in order to enable us to bear good fruits for His own glory. So let us allow the Holy Spirit to carry out His regenerative, life-changing, and mighty works in our lives as commissioned by God by submitting ourselves to His leading daily.

Transformation Must Ensue Coming To Christ

Christ has saved us not only to snatch us from the eternal consequence of sin but to make it possible for us to glorify God by serving Him in the beauty of holiness. Glorifying God is the main cause that should compel us to live a life that is God honoring.

A life that’s built on expressing our deepest appreciation, gratitude, and reverence to what Christ has done for us on the cross. If we’re in Christ, there must be a total transformation that takes place in our lives as a result (2 Corinthians 5:17).

If there’s no change at all, then it’s pointless for us to have come to Him in the first place. Therefore, it would have been much better had we stayed in our old ways of life due to fact that we’re doing both Christ and ourselves a great disservice. Moreover, if there’s no transformation, this proves that we didn’t really need Christ in our lives.

Most importantly, one thing you need to realize is that your willingness to live a transformed life after receiving Christ is the main factor that will demonstrate whether or not you were sincere in the decision that you made to follow Him.

True Confession Of Sins Should Lead To Repentance

humble

Confessing sins before God is to admit that you’ve done evil in His sight by seeking His forgiveness. But, the most important aspect about confessing sins has to do with what we do later, so this is where repentance comes heavily into play. Because our post-attitude toward a particular sin that we’ve confessed before God determines if we were sincere during the confession.

The main problem is that lot of times we act just like we had never made any confession to God by keeping on doing the same old things we’ve been doing all along. Living in such way then places ourselves into a state before God in which we cannot receive His blessings since God doesn’t reward rebellion.

Because it’s one thing to ask God to bless you; however, it’s something entirely different to actually place yourself in a receiving state by being obedient to God. Lot of times we pray God to bless us, but when God is about to bless us, He then finds ourselves meddling with sin, which is tantamount to us turning our back on Him by going back in the same sinful things that we had already confessed to Him.

Let’s Be Grateful To Christ

The main foundation of the Christian life is predicated upon Christ’s death and resurrection. Apart from Him, there’s absolutely no hope and future for mankind. Christ voluntarily yielded Himself up for us with no reservation, so He’s simply asking us to do the same thing. The massive pain, shame, rejection, and humiliation that He knew He was about to go through didn’t hold Him back from giving His life for us. This is a clear demonstration that His love for us was far stronger and greater than our sins.

We Are Commanded To Live Holy Lives

“But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy” (1 Peter 1:15 – 16).

We are living in a day and age wherein what used to be expected as Christian behavior is now open to debate. This is something that never occurred in most of the 2,000 years since Calvary. There was no debate as to whether or not a Christian should live a pure, holy life. Instead, this was simply a given and assumed to be a basic truth that required absolutely no debate whatsoever.
