Time with God - June 8, 2012


2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.

The biggest change that can ever occur in your life is the change that Jesus Christ brings!

You can never fully understand how total this change is until you experience it. When I start a new life with Christ in it, my relationship with God changes. God is no longer to me a distant being who measures goodness and holds us accountable; someone who mainly matters only in the Bible days of the past and in the future of eternity. Now God is the most important person in my life. In fact, His life flows through me and becomes the source of my whole life.

Because of this, my motivation in life changes too. Now my goal in life is not to please myself, but to please the Lord. And my mindset changes too. I don’t interpret every situation by how it impacts on me, but rather I look for how God wants to use me in other people’s lives in every situation I find myself in. I know that God wants to serve and minister to people and that He does it in partnership with me.

My attitude changes too, because I know that God has promised that at the end of it all is the beauty of life together with Him forever.
