Not Just a Change in Destination!

The Lord has given us this command, "I have placed you here as a light for the Gentiles. You are to take the saving power of God to people everywhere on earth."  This message made the Gentiles glad, and they praised what they had heard about the Lord. Everyone who had been chosen for eternal life then put their faith in the Lord. The message about the Lord spread all over that region.

Acts 13: 47 - 49

The God who made us all, provided a way for every man and woman on earth to be forgiven for their sins and receive the promise of living with Jesus in Heaven forever!  The language you speak makes no difference.  Your home country is irrelevant.  It doesn’t matter how bad you have been or how confused you are about the Truth of God!  

When you hear about Jesus and decide in your heart to pursue a relationship with the Savior, your mind begins to clear and you see everything differently!  Instead of the Bible being a strange book of old sayings, it morphs into a Word from Heaven for this moment!  The more you trust God, the more you cease to respond to difficult situations and simply allow the Holy Spirit to chart the appropriate path!  You lose the desire to react in ways that now are clearly wrong.  

Being “Saved” is not just a change of Eternal destinations.  It is rather a change of who you are in every fiber of your being!  You become like Jesus, not because you are imitating Him, but because your very nature is being changed into the same nature as that of Jesus Himself!  

“Lord Jesus, thank You for paying the price for my sins, so that I can by Your power become like You!  May You, Jesus be praised now and forever.  Amen.”
