All Things are New

Have you ever wished for the sweet love of Jesus? Does it ever seem hard to do what is right? Do you ever relate with the experience that "to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do."? But then have you realized that this is only the experience of the carnal life, sold under sin, but that the grace of God is so much more powerful?

It can never be repeated too often that under grace it is easier to work the works of righteousness than when under sin, it was to work the works of unrighteousness. For grace is simply that much more powerful than sin. For the power of God is that much more powerful than the power of the devil. What victory! Here is the theme of Romans 5,6

God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. MUCH MORE then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved...
MUCH MORE being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.
MUCH MORE the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.
MUCH MORE they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.
But where sin abounded, grace did MUCH MORE abound.

How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
For he that is dead is FREED from sin.
Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God...
For sin shall NOT have dominion over you.
Being then made FREE from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
But now being made FREE from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, ALL things are become new. And ALL things are of God... (2 Cor. 5:17,18)

Praise God for His unspeakable gift of GRACE. Let us not receive the grace of God in vain, for if one died for all then were all dead, that they which live should not heneceforth live unto themselves, but that the life of Christ might be manifest in human flesh.

This is conversion, that it is no longer I that live, but Christ that liveth in me. It is free to all, to any who would believe on Him.

Remember, ALL things are new, and ALL things are of God...
