When a person believes in Jesus Christ or accepts Him as their Savior, they become a child of God.
John 1 verse 12; ” But to all who receive Him, He gave them the right to be children of God.”
We were dead in trespasses and sin Ephesians 2 verse 1 and 2:
V1: “And you were dead in your trespasses and sin V2: in which you previously walked according to this worldly age, according to the ruler 0f the atmospheric domain”.
But in a divine experience, The Holy Spirit gives new life, to the individual, a new nature to serve God, a new desire to do God’s will and a new appetite for righteousness.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’.
We can except what we have been given and walk in the newness pf Life, or we can play lip service, to our decision and walk in our old ways.
Christianity is a way of life to walk in, to choose not to walk in the newness of life we have been given, would be walking in Christianity as a religion.
Some may say it is nice to walk in a world wide club called the religion of Christianity. But to follow the newness we have been given it is better to be apart of a world movement of living out our faith and representing The One Who has called us and set us apart, for His Kingdom as a child of The Most High God.
Pick any of the world religions we want, if we want to be apart of a club or establishment. Choose Christ Jesus if we want to be different, and free to walk in communion with the God that created you.
