Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
(2 Cor. 5:17)
II Corinthians 5:11-21
None of us can change our lives until God changes our hearts. It’s a work of God’s grace within us. When our hearts are changed, there are undeniable changes in our lifestyle. We have a personal relationship with God as LORD of our lives. We love God, and we experience His love for us.
So before expecting things to change, we must first seek for Him and His kingdom. All the hard stuff is done, Jesus already died on the cross for our sins so now all we have to do is seek for Him and declare that Jesus is our one and only Savior. Make known that we acknowledge His death on the cross for our lives.
When we do that, we are welcomed into His kingdom and the Holy Spirit enters our heart. From then on, expect change! Expect for your heart to be transformed, for your priorities to be corrected and your actions to change. Because when He lives in us, our priorities will not be for ourselves but for Him, and living in sin is not part of living in Him.”
“Dear Lord, I declare that You are King and Lord of my life. I declare that my life is no longer my own but You have resided in my heart and all the things I do will only glorify You. Change in me all the things that are not from You. I hope to be more and more like You. In Your Name I pray, Amen.”
