This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
2 Corinthians 5:17

But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.
John 1:12

The moment you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior you were translated from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of God and you became a child of God. And as a child of God you have to think, talk and walk like your Father God.

 

You may ask “how should I live my life?”. No the question should rather be “how does Jesus want me to live?” Because 1 Corinthians 6:20 says “you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies” meaning we do not own our lives it belongs to Jesus.

 

Jesus said if anyone wants to be a true disciple of his, he or she must must learn to carry his or her cross daily meaning we must learn to say no to “our will” daily and walk in his.

Many of us wants God to use us mightily but we fail to accept our father’s principle. What’s his principle; “For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.” Matthew 16:25

This is our new way of life the more we die to self the more alive we become. Embrace this kingdom principle and you shall bear much fruit.

“Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.” -John 12:24
