Believe it or not, we have been called to a new life (Matthew 3:2; Mark 1:14-15). This new life is in Christ Jesus. Some will choose to receive this new life, and some won’t.
How do you receive it? You must confess, to God, that you are a sinner and need a savior. Then, you must ask His Son, Jesus, into your heart. When this happens, you will become forgiven of your sins.
If you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
Because of this miracle, we as believers, are not condemned and are free from the shame of our sins (1 John 1:9). This miracle was performed through the death of Christ and not the works of the Law (1 Corinthians 15:45). Because of Jesus, we are, daily, empowered to start over and walk out our righteousness in Him. Daily, we can commit to studying God’s Word and living like Jesus. As well, the Holy Spirit will live in us and guide us to this obedience (John 3:34; Galatians 4:6).
