“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 (ESV)
Every follower of Christ has a “before” and “after” picture of their character, and that is a continual growing gap. Christianity is a born again experience that transforms our attitudes, interests, and behaviors. There is an exchange of our human spirit with His Holy Spirit as we feed on the Word and grow in Christ likeness, sometimes slowly but always certainly.
Progress in the Christian life is not measured by the frequency of time spent on church pews but by the changes in our life, like being slower to express offensive language and being quicker to pray.
Let’s pray today that those who claim to be Christians will also live a changed life in Christ.
