Because I am in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], I am a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life]. 2 Corinthians 5:17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version
Have you ever seen them graft one tree into another?
I have always found that fascinating. The grafted part becomes a part of the tree. It depends upon it for sustenance. Indeed, if it was a different species it now becomes a new one.
So too is it with our relationship with Christ.
The moment we accept Him as our Saviour, King and best friend He begins grafting us into one of His own. We depend upon Him for our mental, physical and spiritual health.
The things that once fascinated us soon become repugnant and repulsive to us.
Now, we have become more like Him we have the same disposition as Him and the same fancies.
This is strange to those on the outside and so they mock us. That is to be expected because those on the out side mocked Jesus as well.
The Holy Spirit is the best make over artist of all Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bore (Isaiah 40:28 The LORD Creator ) for blessing me with grafting me into You most beautiful holy family. I thank you in the name of He whose blood made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen
May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah
