When Jesus Christ comes into your life and saves you, you are immediately changed you are immediately a new person. He gives you a new heart, new eyes, new desires, and you immediately change. I want to read for you about a man that was saved when Jesus came into his life.
We read Luke 19:1 “He entered Jericho and was passing through and there was a man called by the name of Zacchaeus, he was a chief tax collector and he was rich. Zacchaeus was trying to see who Jesus was and was unable because of the crowd for he was small in stature. So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree in order to see Him, for He was about to pass through that way. When Jesus came to the place, He looked up and said to him: “Zacchaeus hurry and come down, for today I must stay at your house,” and he hurried and came down and received him gladly. When they saw it they all began to grumble saying:”He has gone to be the guest of a man who is a sinner.” Zacchaeus stopped and said to the Lord:”Behold Lord, half of my possessions I will give to the poor and if I have defrauded anyone of anything I will give back four times as much.” and Jesus said to Him:”Today salvation has come to this house, because he too is a son of Abraham. For the Son of man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
If we are in sin, we are lost but when Jesus comes into our heart and He saves us, then He saves us from sin he makes us new. He makes us children of God, and immediately we are changed, we become children of God and we have the desire to do the will of God. Many professing Christians claim to be saved but they are sinners. They never changed because Jesus never came into their heart, He never came into their life. When Jesus comes into your life you are immediately changed, you are not a sinner anymore. When Jesus comes into your heart, the light goes on, and you see all the filth, all the wickedness and you want to get rid of it immediately. You clean up your house, you clean up your heart, and you make it a suitable dwelling place for Jesus Christ.
Jesus does not cohabit with satan. He does not live in a dirty house, He does not live in a sinful heart. We either have Jesus in us or we have satan in us. If we are children of God and Jesus dwells in us, then we will not sin, we will be pure and holy and we will seek to do the will of God, we will be like Jesus. If Jesus comes into your life and you are saved then you are not a sinner anymore. Have you been saved? Has salvation come into your heart, into your house? Are you different from the rest of the world? Are you living pure and holy for Jesus Christ?
May Jesus bless you.
