As believers, we are living by two statements.
First, Jesus says in Revelation, Chapter Twenty-One: "Behold, I make all things new." We are continually becoming new in Jesus Christ. Some call it "redevelopment." Others call it "revitalization." And yes, some refer to it as basically "change." We simply know that Jesus makes all things new and we want to be more like Him. We seek revival in our lives and in our homes. We want to see God move in our community and in our nation. We want to be effective in living out the Gospel message and in sharing that same message with a broken world.
Secondly, the first statement leads to this one: We desire to walk with Jesus so we can walk like Him. As John writes in 1 John, Chapter 2: "He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked." This can only be done as we become spirit-minded, not worldly-minded. It must be visible as we live lives that are spirit-led.
The great Puritan John Newton once wrote: "“I am not what I ought to be, I am not what I want to be, I am not what I hope to be in another world; but still I am not what I once used to be, and by the grace of God I am what I am." God continues to grow us and mold us into the Jesus Christ. We are blessed that God has changed us, and continues to change us.
Come join us as we become what the Lord Jesus Christ wants us to be!
We want to hear from you!
