Came across this insightful paragraph in my reading Monday night … read, consider and be blessed!
“This is the stunning message of Christianity: Jesus died for you so that he might live in you. Jesus doesn’t merely improve your old nature, he imparts to you an entirely new nature – one that is completely united with his. Everything that belongs to him becomes yours. His righteousness replaces your unrighteousness. His Spirit fills your spirit. His love becomes your love. His joy becomes your joy. His mind becomes your mind. His desires become your desires. His will becomes your will. His purpose becomes your purpose. His power becomes your power. The Christian life thus becomes nothing less than the outliving of the indwelling Christ. This is the essence of what it means to be a Christian – a follower of Christ.”
What Did Jesus Mean When He Said Follow Me? booklet
