A new creation in Christ

  And say to the rebellious house, to the house of Israel, Thus says the Lord God: O house of Israel, enough of all your abominations (Ezekiel 44:5144f7bff6d03cc8b12daa9cf81335b9

Getting tired of being good? We shouldn’t be. It should be doing bad that must be put into halt. Before we end the day, we should make it a habit to meditate. Buy a notebook and list down the good versus the bad things that we have done. In such a way we will be reminded of asking for God’s forgiveness. As the days go by, a progress should be seen wherein goodness outnumbers the abominations. Salvation may not be through our actions but of God’s and Christ sacrifice yet it will please the Lord if we start living a life turning away from sin.

Once we had surrendered our life to God and had accepted Christ as our Lord and Savior, we’ve been made new creations, the old self has gone. We were purified and cleansed by the Spirit. Because of that case, we should try to get rid of sin and overcome temptation. Though there will be times that we will transgress, continue to walk in spirit. We may stumble for some time but God is handing His helping hands. Let us always ask for God’s forgiveness. Let us always ask His presence to dwell in us. Let us request Him to help us fight wickedness and worldliness.

Strive hard to be sinless like Jesus. God said enough of all your outrages. There is no other better day to commence following His commands than now, brothers and sisters.
