God Wants To Change You

"For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son." (Romans 8:29)

One October day, Brandon was on an airplane flying to Vermont. As the plane dipped its wings over Lake Champlain, Brandon looked out his window. What a sight! All around the misty water below were acres and acres of maple trees that had changed color. Brandon had never seen trees wearing any brighter shades of red, orange, and gold.

If you have become a Christian by trusting Jesus Christ to save you from your sin, God wants to make a glorious change inside of you – an even more beautiful change than the colored leaves of fall. He wants to make you just like His Son, Jesus Christ! Can you imagine what that would be like? You would love God with all of your heart. You would be full of joy. You would be confident in God even when bad things happened. You would be kind and gentle – even toward your brothers and sisters. You would never be selfish. You would never disobey. You would always hate sin.

Long ago, before you ever asked God to save you, He was planning to do this beautiful work in you. His Spirit who lives in you will show you the things that need to change. Will you cooperate with God as He works?

God wants to change you to be like His Son, Jesus Christ.

My Response:
» Is God's Holy Spirit showing me areas that need to change in my life?
» Am I becoming more like Jesus?

Question & Answer

QWill God forgive the man who dies not believing in Jesus Christ?

ANo. Such a man has committed the unpardonable sin of unbelief and will not be forgiven. Instead, he must spend an eternity in hell. Matthew 25:46 – And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

 

BIG Christian Word

Righteousness - (ri'ches-nes)

Righteousness describes the way God acts. God always acts in a way that is right, for He is the final standard of what is right. God wants us to understand his righteousness by studying the Scriptures so we can act the way he wants us to. (Isaiah 45:19) "I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the Lord speak righteousness, I declare things that are right."
