Faith In Action ‘Christ Living In Us’

new-life

New Life in Christ Jesus, should bring New Living. A new way of living, were the self in our life, gives way to His ways and purpose for our life.

Christ living in you! The moment we receive Christ Jesus as Our Lord, Our redeemer and Our Friend, through The Holy Spirit He comes to live in our hearts.

Colossians 1 Verse 26 and 27:  {Message Bible}:

“This mystery has been kept in the dark for a long time, but now it’s out in the open. God wants everyone, not just Jews, to know this rich and glorious secret inside and out, regardless of their background, regardless of their religious standing. The mystery i a nut shell is just this: Christ is in you, so therefore you can look forward to sharing in God’s glory”.

Now because Christ Jesus lives in us, we will have a different attitude, to sin {missing the mark we were created for}. We learn to hate sin as god hates it, but not the sinner.

1 John 5 verse 18:

“We know that everyone who has been born of God does not sin, but the One who is born of God keeps him and the evil one does not touch him”.

Our New Life in Christ Jesus, will bring on a desire to serve Him. a desire to know Him more, a desire to seek Him more, that comes by immersing ourselves in His Word. The Bible will become our daily companion.

Our New Life in Christ Jesus, will draw us away from the things of the world, the old things that use to fascinate in our sinful state. 1 John 2 verse 15:

“ Do not love the world or the things that belong to the world. If anyone loves the world, love for The Father is not in him”.

Our New Life in Christ Jesus, everything becomes new, our old ways of thinking, doing and believing, should become foreign to us. 2 Corinthians 5 verse 17:

“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation, old things have passed away and look, new things have come”.

There is a lot more to just saying the sinner prayer, that is just the start of complete newness in our lives, don’t settle for anything less.

God Bless.
