By: O. Samuel
Good morning to you all. I hope and believe we are realizing our new life in Christ. Let us read these verses from the KJV Bible.
Philippians 3:9 ‘And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith’.
Philippians 3:13 ‘Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before’.
Once we become a new man, we have nothing to do with our past sinful life. Paul is a typical brother who after he met the Lord never thought of his past or even went back to his past life of sin. But rather he persevered even to know more about his Saviour. The Gospel was what was before him, so he went for it. Read 2 Timothy 4:5. Brethren, right after we received Christ He put something before us and we must reach out to it. These are tasks we need to perform as believers. We put on this new life of Christ full of righteousness to perform these tasks set before us. May the Lord teach us the more of this new life (Himself). Amen.
Please share a word with the world.
