New Life in Christ Jesus

text size A A A

By: Linda Carter

Over 2,000 years ago, God sacrificed and sent his only son Jesus to die a crucial death on Calvary cross for our sins. His death was the ultimate sacrifice so that you and I would have eternal life in him.

John 10:10 says, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and kill and to destroy: I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly”. (KJV)

When a person is not living the new life in Jesus Christ, they are not walking in the freedom that God has promised to those who receive him. Sin separates us from God. It’s only in Jesus Christ that we can experience a new life.

I can personally attest to a new life in Christ Jesus. God has blessed and enabled me to walk in this new life, after fifteen years of living a life of total darkness as a lesbian. I was blinded by Satan and his lies that I could live as a lesbian and still go to heaven. One of the biggest lies, which he tells.

John 8:36 “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed”. (NIV)

What a joy it is to know how much Jesus loves us. He is not willing that anyone should perish. He is patient, kind and long-suffering. He wants all to come and experience the freedom of living your best life in Him.

I am so grateful to God, for not giving up on me. I could not change myself, but God who has ALL power can set anyone FREE! I have not regretted this new life in Jesus Christ. It is so freeing to live and walk in God’s freedom. Does that mean things will always be perfect? No, God gives us his Holy Spirit to walk along side us.

You will never be fulfilled until you give your life completely over to Jesus Christ. Then you can proclaim with me, along with so many others, that this is the best life a person can have.

Jesus is waiting on you. All he wants is to hear you say Yes Lord! I surrender my old life over to you and I receive my new life in Jesus Christ.
