SMS Message - TO CHANGE OLD NATURE IN MAN TO NEW LIFE IN CHRIST WAS WHY JESUS CAME 2CORINTHIANS 5:17. OLD OR NEW NATURE, WHICH ONE IS PREVAILING IN YOU? CHECK AND DESIRE NEW LIFE THIS MONTH. 2CORINTHIANS 5:17 SAYS ‘THEREFORE, IF ANYONE IS IN CHRIST, HE IS A NEW CREATURE; OLD THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY; BEHOLD, ALL THINGS HAVE BECOME NEW’. HOW NEW IN NATURE ARE WE CHRISTIANS WHO PROFESS TO BE IN CHRIST? THE ONLY WAY TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION IS TO CAST OUR MINDS BACK AND DO A LIST OF THE UNDERSTANDING WE HAVE ABOUT THE OLD NATURE WE WERE CARRYING BEFORE WE MET CHRIST. CHECK EACH ITEM ON YOUR LIST OF THE OLD LIFE WITHOUT CHRIST AND SEE HOW MANY OF THEM YOU HAVE GIVEN UP AS A RESULT OF THE GRACE YOU HAVE RECEIVED THROUGH CHRIST. JESUS DID NOT COME TO DIE FOR US TO LIVE A LIFE CARRYING A MIXTURE OF THE OLD AND NEW NATURE. THE TRACE OF AN OLD STAIN ON A WHITE GARMENT WILL NOT MAKE THE GARMENT A COMPLETE WHITE AGAIN. HOW NEW IS THE LIFE YOU HAVE IN CHRIST? TO ANSWER THIS, LET US DO WHAT PAUL WROTE IN 2CORINTHIANS 13:5 REGULARLY – ‘EXAMINE YOURSELVES AS TO WHETHER YOU ARE IN THE FAITH. TEST YOURSELVES. DO YOU NOT KNOW YOURSELVES THAT CHRIST IS IN YOU? – UNLESS INDEED YOU ARE DISQUALIFIED. BY DOING THIS, YOU WILL EASILY IDENTIFY THAT OLD STAIN THAT IS NOT MAKING YOUR GARMENT AS WHITE AS IT IS EXPECTED OF CHRIST FOLLOWERS.
