Do you know that a new life of peace and fulfillment which is full of hope is made available to you right now? Like right now. See this article could there be a better life; a life of peace and fulfillment? For better understanding, I will advise that you read this first could there be a better life; a life of peace and fulfillment?
This new life is what you have been waiting for; I can assure you because it’s like no other. Receiving and living by it is what guarantees your life fulfillment and peace. This post will show you how to receive it, not just to receive it but also how to live in it for your peace, fulfillment and fruitfulness.
HOW CAN I RECEIVE THIS GIFT OF THE NEW LIFE?
This is a good question and the answer is right here. For you to receive this gift you must be born again, that is to be reborn. Not like the natural birth process you know! This new birth is of the spirit, it’s your spirit that gets reborn and made new.
How then can you be born again?
To be born again is to receive Jesus into your live, by believing in your heart that Jesus is the Son of GOD. That He died for you and that GOD raise Him up from the dead on the third day. Believing this truth, then go ahead and confess it with your mouth, you will be saved and the new life will be given to you automatically. Romans 10:9-10
You don’t have to feel it, it’s a Spiritual thing and it is your spirit that receives this life. So it’s not something you feel or try to figure out with your head but you believe it in your heart.
You are a prayer away from this new life
Confession unto salvation is made through prayer to GOD, and this will get you into this new life even as you believe already. GOD is waiting to hear from you so that He can give this new life to you Revelation 3:20. So I urge you to say this prayer and there you go, set out for a new life of freedom, victory and success here and here after
Prayer of Salvation;
LORD Jesus, thank you for coming to die for my sins and giving me a new life in you. I believe that you are the Son of GOD, who came and died and on the third day you rose to life. I receive and accept you as my personal LORD and saviour, Amen.
If you just said this prayer you are saved and you have become a new person altogether. Because you have just received this new life and are born again, set to win and triumph. Congratulation you have been given the birth right of victory and dominion.
Now that you are saved what next?
It doesn’t end in believing and confessing Jesus as LORD, you need to begin to live in the newness of life. You have been redeemed and saved now, old things have passed away and everything has become new. New you, new life and a new identity. Now start walking in the newness of life in Christ Jesus.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO WALK IN THE NEW LIFE IN CHRIST?
It is walking in this new life that makes all the difference. A holy and sanctified life, living the remaining of your days serving GOD in truth and in Spirit is what it means to walk in the new life. This is the second phase of what the new life is, you were rescued from the kingdom and power of darkness that rules this world into GOD’s kingdom through Christ Jesus.
You are in GOD’s kingdom now and you live in it now, so walk in the newness of life. This walk in the newness of life is what sustains the blessings and riches GOD gives after you have been reborn. That is the more reason why you should read the 8 reasons GOD wants you to be holy they never told you
[bctt tweet=”God uses the concept of marriage to explain how you ought to walk in the new life Christ Jesus” username=””]
There is a life of salvation and you have been called to live it out until Christ returns to judge the whole world. So therefore this new life in Christ is best likened to marriage, the principles, process of marriage best describe the walk of the life in Christ Jesus. The walk of salvation which is the life in Christ Jesus is just like marriage, so I can say that salvation simply means being married to Christ.
You have been married to Christ
Looking at how marriage works will help you understand how salvation and the new life in Christ looks like. Remember that GOD’s will for you is for you to Excel in all things, and excelling in your new life in Christ guarantees your excellence all round. The Bible says you should seek the kingdom of GOD first and it’s righteousness and every other thing shall added unto you Matthew 6:33
View salvation and marriage side by side
During the marriage ceremony an oath or vow of union is taken by the couple, I believe you have attended a marriage ceremony before, a white wedding to be precise? if not, don’t worry, after reading this article you will understand the fundamentals of marriage along side the principles of the new life, you Just read on.
If you understand how the institution of marriage works you will better picture how this new life works. If you are already married, better for you it makes it a lot easier.
That marriage vow made by the man and woman on the alter during their wedding, is a promise to one another to remain and be faithful to each other for better or for worse till death separates them. This marriage vow which must not be broken, but kept by the couple with a life of commitment to each other as long as they live is how your confession and commitment to Christ should be. The Bible say in Romans 10:10 for with the heart one believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
As the marriage vow is declared publicly before every witness, in like manner is your confession made unto salvation. Nobody might be there with you but GOD is, Jesus is and all the hosts of heaven are there present.
GOD paid your dairy
GOD has fully paid the price for your freedom; permit me to liken it with the bride price paid during marriage ceremonies, remember we are viewing marriage and salvation side by side.
You have been bought over by GOD from the evil powers that rule this world, from sin, hell and destruction and GOD didn’t buy you over with money but with His life and precious blood.
That’s expensive, it’s a high cost and that is because you are precious to Him, Can you see how much it cost Him?
In This Case Jesus Is the Man You Are the Woman
When a woman is married, she no longer belongs to her family; she changes her name and identity to that of her husband. She is to remain committed to Him in loyalty and love for better or for worse, in sickness and health, in wealth and poverty in fact at all time until death separate’s them.
This is the code of marriage; GOD has used this earthly institution of marriage to paint the perfect picture of the heavenly union of salvation. However marriage is only limited to the earth but salvation is forever, because Jesus will come to take you to heaven at the right time, when He shall return to Judge the world. Then we all who are saved will live forever with Him because of the new life we have received from Him.
This is something we are not to joke with and that is why He has laid it in my heart to share this with you. He wants you to know that just as the man and His wife have a part to play in the marriage, you have a role to play in your salvation. If the marriage must succeed, the man and the woman must play their part well. GOD has done His part in saving you and He has promised to be faithful to His children. So you have a role to play in sustaining your salvation which is your new life in Christ.
GOD WANTS YOU TO MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR NEW LIFE IN CHRIST
You Have a Price to pay to get the most of this new life
The truth is that you have a price to pay, the price is not just from the path of GOD alone and this is something GOD pointed out to me over the years. 8 reasons GOD wants you to be holy they never told you will explain to you the significance of your labour in this new life
There are some responsibilities on your own path to keeping your new life and that is the work part of it. That is the process of salvation; this is what will give birth to excellence in your live. Don’t forget, GOD wants you to be the best you can be and He wants you to maximize your new life here on earth. To the end of fulfilling your purpose and calling, I like you to know that GOD didn’t just save you He also has a plan for your life. That is why He is so interest and desires’ that you let the light He has given you shine.
In as much as you have received the new life you have a responsibility to walk in it, to grow in it and to guide it jealously until the return of our LORD Jesus. O yes, His is coming again to judge the world.
Paul’s explains in 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 on the issue of the price we must pay so that we can win the prize, which is the crown of glory.
It takes a price to win a prize, to be satisfied you ought to sacrifice, no pain no gain. A soldier has nothing to do with a civilian life and you are a soldier of Christ called into His army. So you ought to live like one
I have learnt to pay the price in the walk of the new life, I have learnt to carry my cross and follow Him. You must carry your cross and follow Him too. You must work out the salvation that has been given to you with fear and trembling Philippians 2:12.
How GOD wants you to walk it out is what I will show you in this next post; 7 principles of the new life in Christ that will make you fruitful. And that is what each and every one of us has been called into.
There Is a Race Set before you
