If you bite the bullet and accept the invitation extended by God, you can bet that you’ll be pleased with the outcome. You’ll not only heal your separation from your Creator, but you’ll also be perfectly placed to cleanse your sins. With Jesus’ assistance, you’ll be able to lead a positive, healthy, and productive life, even though the world at large is full of evil. Your faith will make you strong enough to resist any attempts by the Devil to seduce you away from the side of God (see Romans 8:28–39).
While surrendering to God will deliver you incalculable personal benefits, you should know that it will be required of you to share your faith on a day by day basis. This will not only do you a power of Good but it will help spread the Good News to others. Living the true Christian life is not about being passive and hiding yourself away. It is not acceptable to keep God’s gift to yourself and effectively deny it to others. Jesus has a bigger plan in mind and that requires people to help Him implement it. The amount of work that needs doing is mind-boggling – it ranges from helping people who are homeless, hungry, or sick to simply spreading God’s word, so that others can be enabled to make the same spiritual journey as yourself. Basically, being a Christian, in the true sense, is a full-time job.
In a nutshell, Christianity boils down to kick starting a brand new life, which requires you first to surrender to God and put your trust in Him. Once the power of Christ floods into your heart, you’ll then see big changes – and for the better. Not only will your own life be transformed beyond all recognition, but you’ll find that you are empowered to pass on the good news that Jesus has redeemed you of your sins. Following Christ is not about going through the motions of rituals and pondering over the details of religious observance, but rather it is a dynamic philosophy and way of life, which is underpinned at all times by faith in God, surrender to Him, and an acceptance of the infinite healing power of His Son, Jesus.
