Those are the words that the Lord spoke to me yesterday at church during our Easter service.
That is the truth of the power of the Cross of Jesus Christ and His shed blood in our lives.
When we come to and through the Cross of Jesus and understand and experience the Cross, we are changed.
We are transformed by its power.
The old person is no longer. We are new creations in Christ.
Transformation means a complete change in the character or appearance of someone especially so that person is IMPROVED.
We cannot NOT be changed by the Cross. We are changed for the better.
We are intended to become the best version of ourselves that God intended us to be through the power of the Cross.
It is a simple but powerful truth.
The Cross of Jesus is the place of transformational change.
You are not the same person you were before you came to and through the Cross of Jesus. Don’t rely on feelings, accept that truth and apply the truth daily in your life. There will then be fruit of the change that will show in your life.
Your circumstances may not have changed, they may never change but YOU HAVE CHANGED IN YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES. You now look at your circumstances from a different vantage point. You look at them from God’s perspective.
Do you want to change? Then come to the Cross of Jesus Christ. It is the only place where you will meet the Truth in person, Jesus, He who has the power to change you and for the better.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
2 Corinthians 5:17
