Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. —2 Corinthians 5:17
Now the heart cries out for a living faith with a deep vision of God. The world cannot produce it. Living faith is a place where we seek the Word so that when we pray we know God hears. Living faith comes into the presence of God, asking Him and believing Him for the answer, while having no fear.
I used to have a tremendous temper, going white with passion. My whole nature was not what God wanted. God knew that I could never be of service unless I was sanctified. For example, I was difficult to please at the table. My wife was a good cook, but there was always something wrong. After God sanctified me, she testified in a meeting that from the time God touched me, I was pleased with everything she cooked.
It is our human spirit that has to be controlled by the Holy Spirit.
This world is full of stimulation. It is by faith, into a place of grace that all may see us new. Behold! Behold! Behold! What is it? The Holy Ghost is arousing our attention. He has something special to say. Behold, if you will believe, you can be sons of God in likeness, character, spirit, and actions.
Lord Jesus, I desire to be changed in
Thy Presence. Make of me a new
creation in Thee. Amen.
