Transformation By Christ

Galatians 2:20 (NIV)
 

“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” 

 
Pray and ask God for strength against impatience, short fused, quick to say horrible things, retaliation,bitterness and unforgiveness  We don’t have to accept the fact that it’s something that we have been doing all of our lives, God’s Word tells us that when we surrender our lives to Christ, the way we were dies and is replaced by the way He calls us to be. God changes us from the inside out! His Word tells us our old (dead) ways are gone and the new (alive) ways can take over!
 
Transformation comes, Ask God for power to hold our tongue, to think before we speak, to speak truth in love. The same power that raised Lazarus from the dead and parted the Red Sea. That’s the power that lives in you and me!

I read this and wanted to share this with others:

The reality of Christ living in me—Resurrection Life—first changed my heart and then my home.

If you have heard and believed  lies about who you are, hear these words and never forget them:

Resurrection Life means…

You are unconditionally loved.

You are completely forgiven.

You are fully redeemed.

You are a new creation.

You are totally transformed from the inside out.

 
This Holy Spirit transformation is real. God’s Word tells us that we are “more than conquerors” through Christ who loves us (Romans8:37). Our new “living” self conquers our old “dead” self.

So where we used to join in the gossip, now we turn the conversation around. Where we used to lie to get out of a commitment, now we just say, “No.” Where we used to lose our temper and speak unkind words, now we stop, listen and then speak truth in love. Where we, though married, used to harmlessly flirt with other men, we now set boundaries with other men that are honoring to our husbands.

Psalm 139 tells us we are “fearfully and wonderfully made.” Sin corrupted that creation, but the good news is that Jesus’ work on the cross returns to us the power to live in the fullness of how we were originally made. Free from sin.

Walk confidently in the newness of Resurrection Life!

Father, thank You that Christ lives in me! May I know deep in my heart that I am a new creation, transformed from the inside out. Help me to live in the fullness of the incredible gift of the indwelling power of Your Holy Spirit. I pray this in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
