Topic: Are You In? [November 11, 2016]
The very moment we receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we instantly become a new creation! Your spirit is made alive in Him and the old passes away. His peace fills your heart. Of course, everything in your life doesn’t change instantly. Some things do, but God will do some things in your life over time as you grow in your relationship with Him. The key is to keep moving forward in your spiritual journey one step at a time. As you abide in Him by spending time with Him in prayer and worship, as you study His Word and connect with other believers in a Bible-based church, He will continue to transform you and renew you from the inside out!
Today, remember, God is at work in your life. You may not be where you want to be. You may have made some mistakes or had some setbacks. Know that in Him, you are the righteousness of God. In Him, you are new. In Him is everything you need. Stay on the road to victory by staying in Him!
A Prayer for Today: “Father, thank You for making me new. Thank You for ordering and directing my steps. I trust that You are at work in my life transforming me into Your image. Keep me close to You as I put You first in everything I do in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
