If you RECEIVE Jesus into your life, He makes you NEW inside. Becoming a child of God is not about changing your mind or taking on Christianity. It is about being BORN AGAIN. Putting a new patch of material on an old garment does not make it new. Changing the label of a sinner does not change him into a saint. As long as he keeps on sinning, he is a sinner and not suitable for heaven. You need to CHANGE. Your heart needs to change, then you will hate sin and not desire it, nor do it any more.
The wages of sin is death. The soul that sins will die. Jesus blots out, forgives the past sin, of those who come to Him and He promises them eternal life, if they turn from sin and obey Him, live holy and righteously and SIN NO MORE. No sinners will inherit the kingdom of heaven. You need to change, become a saint, an obedient child of God.
Jesus can give you a NEW HEART. He can make you NEW but He will only do it if you ask Him. He will set you free from addictions and compulsions so that by your own willpower you can resist sin and temptation. He will put you in control of your life so that you can make the right decisions and take action that will lead to life. Jesus offers us eternal life, on condition that we accept, receive, follow and obey Him, become part of His kingdom. He adopts us as His children, makes us new inside, set us free from bondage of sin, but He will never force us to obey Him. At any time, we can go back to sin, disobey Jesus, and do what we choose but then we lose our hope of eternal life.
The question is whether we want to be NEW. Do we want to be pure, holy, children of God? Do we want to be free from the bondage of sin? Do we want eternal life? If we do, then we need Jesus and everything that He requires of us. Jesus is the ONLY one who can give eternal life. He is the only one who can make us NEW, BORN AGAIN children of God, not SINNERS any more. Do we WANT Jesus?
If we don’t want to be made NEW then we are not interested in Jesus and will be wasting our time with Christianity. If we don’t want to obey Jesus and be like Him, then the kingdom of God and eternal life is not for us.
Most professing Christians are not BORN AGAIN. They are just sinners with different labels. They are children of the devil. Most of them confess that they cannot stop sinning. They are doomed and destined for hell and damnation because they love sin and refuse to come to Jesus to be made NEW, BORN AGAIN children of God.
Have you received Jesus, been born again, been made NEW, a child of God, who obeys Jesus and follows Him in holiness and righteousness?
May Jesus bless you.
