Living the New Life

Posted: May 19, 2011 in devotion, inspiration, religion

Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God.
Colossians 3:1-3

A few years ago, I was baptized then helped baptize my wife Christina. Man! What an awesome experience to die with Christ through baptism and be born again. It wasn’t until a friend of mine really mentioned what it truly meant to be baptized when both, my wife and I decided to be truly baptized in Christ. It truly was a glorious day!

From the moment I decided to become a Christian I’ve changed everything I was and let a lot of things go and became of man of God allowing Christ to live through me. As Colossians 3:16 tells us, ” And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.” Remember, everything we do every moment reflects who we are.

Do you want to become a steward of God? Do you want to follow something greater than yourselves? Before you answer, because these are very big questions I am asking you and should not be taken lightly. Being a steward of God has a price but, has so many blessings as well! You must be willing to “freely” give your everything to God. You must be willing to give it all up for Him without question and without strings attached, Jesus did this for you and me. There wasn’t… Can you hold on for a second, I really need to do… Or, I forgot to say goodbye to… Or anything, He has His purpose… His mission and fulfilled it because He knew this was the will of God the Father.

Are you ready? Are you willing? Remember, time of course is not our own. Life is not our own. The Lord has His plans for us, it is up to us to allow Him to guide our lives. So, in closing my brothers and sisters: Try to go out of your way to do something special for a complete stranger, you never know how far a friendly hello can go…

God Bless and good luck!
