Have They Seen A Change In You

 

(John 14:12) “Truly, I tell all of you with certainty, the one who believes in me will also do what I am doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.”

(Romans 5:17) “For if, through one man, death ruled because of that man’s offense, how much more will those who receive such overflowing grace and the gift of righteousness rule in life because of one man, Jesus the Messiah!”

(Acts 4:13) “Now when the Jewish leaders saw the boldness of Peter and John and found out that they were uneducated and ordinary men, they were amazed and realized that they had been with Jesus.”

 

 

If you say you believe in Jesus and no one has noticed a change in you for the positive, then you probably only know about Him and still have not met Him. Becoming a follower of Jesus does not happen by just going to church, or repeating a prayer, or reading the Bible. There has to be a rebirth in the spiritual that will transform your life in the natural. It is a complete change of mindset, character, and priorities. We no longer live for ourselves, but we live for Christ and His glory. We no longer obey other gods, religions, or gurus, but we only consider Christ as our true master and guide.

If these things have not taken place in your life, then you are probably still playing the role of a Christian and you need to have a personal encounter with Jesus to truly become His disciple. The first sign to look for is that you will no longer carry the burden of your past sins. The circle of friends you have will eventually change as you will no longer be comfortable with the speech, jokes, and activities you once enjoyed. God’s moral values will no longer allow you to cheat, lie or steal when conducting business. You will basically love what God loves, and hate what God hates.

Most of the Apostles were illiterate and common farmers or fishermen, however leaders of that time were amazed at their boldness, wisdom and knowledge of God.

When you have truly been with Jesus your speech will represent Christ and His compassion. Your giving and service to others will increase as you will now understand that God gives you all things. Your inner peace will irritate others who won’t understand how you can keep calm during uncertain situations.

You will no longer fight for your rights as it is God now who will fight for you and you will walk in confidence into any situation knowing that you are favored by God. You will also be able to perform the miracles Christ did and lives around you will be changed.

Seems impossible to do right? And it is if you try to do it without Christ. Read Matthew Chapters 5 -7 to see to what extent we are supposed to change once we surrender to Christ.

 

 

Only when Christ takes the place of authority in your heart, will you be able to do all these things and much more. Then everyone who sees you will know that you have been with Christ.
