Biblical Change

When a person trusts the Lord Jesus Christ as personal savior they become a new creature in Christ . . . "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). As new creatures in Christ we are to deal with life now from a biblical perspective. Our problem we will find out is not with the Devil, people or circumstances, but our relationship with God.

The first step in change is to judge self and not others. We are to realize that we are accountable for our own actions and develop a sensitivity to our own sin . . . "Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:" (Psa 139:23).

We must choose to change, God will not do it for us . . ."Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. {15} See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, {16} Redeeming the time, because the days are evil." (Eph 5:14-16) . We cannot take life for granted being careless or casual about accountability to God . . . "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:" (Heb 9:27).

I must separate myself from the past (Phil 4:13-14) in order to be conformed to the ways of the Lord. I am to live a biblical lifestyle according to the standards that God gives me in His Holy Word . . . "Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. {26} Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: {27} Neither give place to the devil. {28} Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. {29} Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. {30} And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. {31} Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: {32} And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you." (Eph 4:25-32)

Change is a daily walk with God and the experience of His wonderful grace through Jesus Christ . . ."I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." (Phil 4:13)
