2 Corinthians 5:21
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
May the peace of God abide in you as you wait patiently for the great outpouring of the Holy Spirit. In this issue we want to share with you what really took place when you get saved. Please bear in mind that, nobody get saved by belonging to a church or religion, or even being born in a God fearing family. Its a choice you make to receive Jesus.
God is not interested in behaviour modification, He wants life transformation. You may have struggled a lot in your life, God wants you to get out of those struggles and rest in Him. Some people think they have to be perfect, but in fact they do not even have to be good at all. Somehow God has a great interest in people who are not good. Most of the people He used were very unqualified, He qualified them.
Think of Moses, he was a murderer, David, Paul, and others. Some people are outright proud and self-righteous when they say, “l don’t want to be saved and am not serious, when l get saved, l don’t want to disappoint God.” they will never get to that place, simply because they are humans. When you go to God, go as you are…. He understands.
From our theme scripture, you can see why you need to be “born again” and be made a “new creature.” Why is that? The old unborn again, old creature will not do, you need to be renewed. This is what grace is all about.
