Living the New Life God Gives You


When you become a believer in Christ, you are radically changed from the inside out.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come (2 Corinthians 5:17).

Augustine, the famed theologian and philosopher, was a very carnal young man, often frequenting houses of prostitution. So, when he came to know Christ as his Savior, he was dramatically transformed and changed by the power of God.

One day he was walking down one of the streets in his home town and a shady lady that he had known previously was standing on the street corner. She saw Augustine and said, “Augustine! Augustine! It is I!” So Augustine immediately turned the other direction and said, “Yes, but it is not I.”

You see, when you become a believer in Christ, you are radically changed from the inside out. That’s because Jesus takes your sin away, liberating you from its bondage, and has given you the Spirit of God to live inside of you. The result is that your old self is dead and your new self enables you to live a life pleasing to God.

God can give you a new heart and a new life if you’re in Christ. And as a Christian, you can make a commitment to holiness and godliness because of that new life. So if you've been made new in Christ, live your life focused on bringing glory to Him!

In Christ, God has taken away your old self and given you a new life. So live your life in freedom from the bondage of sin and give the glory to God!
