Jesus is powerful, wouldn’t you agree? You are a whole new creation! There’s something about being a Christian that changes you. You have been reborn! You’ve decided to devote your life to serving Jesus after acknowledging His immense love and sacrifice for you. If you’re curious, “Now what? After deciding to become a Christian, how will my life change?”
The Gift of the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit comes to those who accept Jesus as Lord and Savior. You come with God’s majesty. The Holy Spirit strengthens your faith and humanity. It educates you on what is good and wrong, empowering you to say no to evil and yes to God. And with just that, Jesus is powerful.
That doesn’t imply you won’t ever be tempted again or that you won’t ever offend. The Holy Spirit’s influence within you is optional. But when you keep communicating with God via prayer, reading the Bible, and fellowshipping with other believers… The more you orient your life towards God, the more you’ll want to live in such a way that brings Him glory.
You will feel great delight and tranquility as you carry out these actions. What God has accomplished for you will cause you to want to give up your terrible, self-serving ways and live life for Jesus. After coming to this realization, you will realize that Jesus is the only one who can truly complete you—a manifestation of how powerful Jesus is.
You will develop the fruits of the Spirit as you yield to the Holy Spirit and follow God. You’ll have many holy qualities, as stated in the Scriptures:
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.” Galatians 5:22
How Following Christ Can Be The Change Your Life Needed
You may be confident in God’s unending love.
“This I KNOW: God is for me.” – Psalm 56:9
You no longer have to validate yourself or worry that you are worthless. God loves you, and God is on your side. You discover who you are by looking at who God says you are.
Your heart is at rest in a way that words can’t describe.
“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:7
Even though life is difficult (and it still may be), you have faith that God is for you, will never forsake you, and is figuring everything out for your benefit, even if you don’t grasp it all. You put your faith in God and are confident in His goodness.
You are a part of something.
“See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are!” – 1 John 3:1
You have been welcomed into the eternal family of God. You are more than encouraged to stay. Discovering other Christians with whom to share life and fellowship is a source of tremendous delight.
There is no need to worry about your future.
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” – John 14:1-3
You will spend eternity in paradise. Do not be deceived… Heaven and hell are both very real places. As a Christian, you also have the assurance that you will be reunited with God in heaven for all eternity after death. And to tell you the truth, we expect paradise to be amazing. What a joyous occasion it will be when it finally comes around
How Can You Honor God with the Way You Live?
There is so much that God has done for us. So the question is, how can we spend our lives showing gratitude? You conduct your life following His word and bring glory to God in everything you say and do.
There are several instructions for life that may be found in the Bible. These instructions were given to us by God so that we would be safe from ourselves, that we may learn how to love one another, that we might grow the family of God, and that we may give Him glory.
Have you noticed that one of the objectives is not so that we can earn our salvation? Grace has brought about our salvation. However, grace does not contradict our efforts to lead a life worthy of God’s gift; rather, it contradicts the notion that we can earn the gift via our good works.
The Bible contains the 10 Commandments, which are often referred to as God’s Law. The first 4 Commandments teach us to love God, while the latter 6 teach us to love others.
Many believe that the laws of God are rigid and inflexible. They detest being told what to do with their lives. However, the laws that God has established are just an expression of his love for us and are here to safeguard us.
Consider the seventh commandment, “You shalt not commit adultery.” God has a heart for preserving marriages and delivering us from the anguish that may result from infidelity. Or there is commandment number nine, which can also be stated as “Do not lie.” God knows that lying is harmful and that lies always find a way to come back to bite the liar. God wants what’s best for you.
Jesus summed up the requirements of the law as follows:
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’” Matthew 22:37-39
You should go out into this great wide lovely world with gratitude and love for God and other people! Spread the news about how powerful Jesus is and let it change your life!
