The saved YOU should be recognizably different from the unsaved you. If you are still living the same lifestyle you did before you gave your life to Christ you have not fully surrendered your life to Jesus or fully accepted him. Ask the Holy spirit to help you evaluate your walk with him. ” Therefore,if anyone is in Christ,the new creation has come: The old has gone,the new is here!” ( 2 Corinthians 5:17)
” Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication,uncleanness,passion,evil desire,and covetousness, which is idolatry. Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience, in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them.But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger,wrath, malice,blasphemy,filthy language out of your mouth. Do not lie to one another,since you have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him.” (Colossians 3:5-10)
It is time for the Body of Christ to rise up. How can we win the souls of unbelievers that are still in the world if they don’t see our new nature ? And we look and behave like satan (the world) , instead of like Christ? We cannot serve God and be apart of the world which is controlled by the devil. We are either controlled by the Spirit of God or used by satan. There is no in between. The Lord wants to do some marvelous things in your life, but is waiting on you to surrender and let him have his way in your life.
Its impossible to TRULY encounter Love of God and remain the same. Religious spirits must be broken in the name of Jesus. Showing up to church and doing traditions DOES NOT MOVE GOD.
In fact, religion keeps people from intamacy with God . “Not everyone who says to me,‘Lord,Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven,but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord,Lord,did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly,‘I never knew you. Away from me,you evildoers!’ (Matthew 7:21-23)
Pray: Holy Spirit come into my heart and enlighten the eyes of my understanding. I want to know you better. I completely surrender my life to you. Have your way in my life, In Jesus Name.
