The most significant change that you can ever experience is meeting Jesus Christ. Your salvation encounter with Him makes you a new person. That is the clear teaching of the New Testament scriptures. Paul wrote, “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” (2 Corinthians 5:17) That is total change.
The change in the life of the person who receives Christ as his Savior is so dramatic that Jesus spoke of it as being “born again.”
I was listening to a “talk radio” program recently. The host began a diatribe about people who talk about being “born again.” He excoriated people who use the term and who tell others they need this experience. He actually made it sound gory as he ridiculed the idea that a person could re-enter his mother’s womb and go through the process of being born a second time. I don’t think he knew that it was the words and teaching of Jesus that he was ridiculing. (Read in the Bible John chapter 3.)
This is the experience every person needs. Paul teaches us that the old life of sin and transgressions is transformed into a new life when we accept the salvation of the Lord Jesus.
This is the fundamental concept of the Christian life in the New Testament: When we come to Christ, we become a new person and from that time we live a “new life.” (Romans 6:4 NIV)
Many changes will come in your lifetime. Few things stay the same for very long. The greatest change you will ever experience occurs when you personally meet Jesus Christ and accept Him as your Savior. It is a wonderful change that provides you a completely new Life. That new life is a better life than you will ever have without Him.
