“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things have become new.” –2 Corinthians 5:17 (21st Century King James Version)
What is the difference between someone who has faith and someone who has not?
This is a very interesting question to consider. What is the difference between someone who says he is a Christian and someone who is not? Is there nothing? What separates the two?
Someone confesses, “I used to be a chain smoker, but when I have received the Lord in my heart, I have overcome my desire to smoke”. Another testifies, “I used to be hooked on porn but when I have received the Lord in my heart, I have learned to quit viewing porn materials”. Another says, “My life had no direction and headed to disaster. I committed criminal acts thinking that life was all about power and money. I ended up in jail. Through a jail ministry, I met the Lord and I received Him as my Lord and Savior, now I am free. Maybe not physically, but I found new life free from misery”.
The greatest miracle in life is a change of heart. A person living with hate, anger and misery turns to God in humble repentance is the sweetest miracle and it is all because Jesus has come into his heart.
If you receive the Lord into your heart, there will be an indescribable change: a change that will make you a new being with new focus and direction, and with a new way of life.
We as Christians have experienced this change, since Jesus came into our hearts.
