Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come. The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17 New International Version
We see on TV all the time: the new and improved!! Which I do not believe for a minute and it is my personal opinion it is just a gimmick.
When we welcome Christ into our lives it is the real thing.
When we accept Christ into our lives we the Holy Spirit begins a transformation in us.
It is like the caterpillar going into the cocoon to come out a beautiful butterfly. Now when the caterpillar is in the cocoon you can bet it is going through many struggles in its transformation.
So too it is with us.
Just because we have accepted Christ does not mean an instant change. It slowly takes place and the wonderful and amazing thing is, is that the transformation lasts until we either go to the other side or until Christ comes to take us to our Heavenly home.
Now do not be surprised if what you once enjoyed you not have no interest in and in many instances will find repugnant.
Do not be surprised when those around you do not understand the change and in many cases mock you and distance themselves from you. They are in your old materialistic world, but now you are in Christs spiritual world.
He has been transforming me for over twenty years and I am still a work in progress.
Yes it has cost me in many relationships that I was close with but that has been replaced by a loving bond with fellow members of Christs family that is so much deeper and rewarding than those left behind.
Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Pyrrand (Jesus my friend) for blessing me with the most truly awesome and life fulfilling relationship and close bond with You my most amazing friend. It is such a privilege to know that I am THEOPHILUS= friend of God I exalt You in Your sweet loving name. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day
