Today's inspiration: Almost everything will be done to you according to your faith. Before Jesus heals a person he always check the level of his faith. If they believe he will say whatever you come to me for, it will be done according to your faith. Matthew 9:29.
Salvation is not an improvement but a new creation not a repair job but a total overhaul. Though good works cannot save us, we are saved to do good works. By God's grace He saved us to do good works. We no longer walk in our sins in Ephesians 2:1 but we can now walk in good works. Verse 10.
To be separated from Christ is to miss the spiritual blessings of God. To be separated from His people, is to be deprived of his promises, rights and privileges He has given to us. To live without hope and God is terrifying.
We need to watch the spiritual condition of our heart and that of those under us. We need to appreciate the grace that was given to us. No one can get near to God without Jesus. John 14:6.
After salvation there needs to be sanctification before we can be a total creation. 2 Corinthians 5:17. We must get rid of our old Jericho and place within our hearts God's words the foundation of our life.
Sanctification however is not an overnight transformation but a process. Many Christians though born again are not a new creation. They still conform to the world which Apostle Paul was deadly against. Romans 12:2. If we compromise with the world by adopting the world's principles to our life or listen to the lies of the devil we can never be a new creation. Neither can life be meaningful and purposeful. A fleshy life cannot achieve what God plans for us to accomplish. We can accomplish great exploits and be an extraordinary person if only we walk in the spirit and be led by the spirit. Romans 8:13.
