The Message

A Change of Heart and Mind

Change of Heart and Mind.

A new creation is the teaching of Paul, and he wrote a letter to the Christian Church in Corinth. Corinthians lack ethical and moral values; they go against each other, claiming spiritual superiority, unacceptable sexual behavior, fellowshipping with darkness, and suing each other in court instead of settling their differences without involving the court. They must undergo physical regeneration from an old self to a new person. New Creation is recreation and transformation into the image of Christ. Born Again teaching of Jesus Christ is about receiving eternal life through a change of heart. It is more spiritual than physical. Born Again Christians are children of God, the Almighty, the Father and Judge.

We are all sinners, that causes our souls to be short of the glory of God. The God of this world controls our minds to deny us to think righteously, what more those unbelief, which is easy prey for their wicked deeds. They were denied from seeing the light of truth brought by the gospel. 

When we live out God’s purpose in our lives, the wicked world will dictate to go against God’s will. The mind dominates our actions, and when we give up the battle of the mind, we also lose the desires of our hearts. When our mind loses focus, we also lose the chance to transform our mind. Remember, God called us to transform ourselves by renewing our minds. We must change our thoughts to God’s rather than living in a godless world that only dictates corruption.  It is our strong will to change our minds to do it. As the Bible says, We have to work on our Salvation; Faith alone without work is dead.

We know that only God has the power to change the hearts of men. We can tell them how to save their lives, but the decision to believe remains with them. But when we submit our concerns to the LORD, He will do the rest to make them believe. Another passage said, “And I will give you a new heart and spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.”(Proverbs 21:1; Ezekiel 36:26). The more we give thought to God, the more our heart listen. Change of heart of stone’s self-centeredness to God’s Love, compassion, and forgiveness. The more God’s attributes go out into the world, the more it obliterate the work of fear that controls us to leave the temporary comfort of luxury living that the adversary of God has given. God’s Love, mercy, and Grace change our hearts, guided by His Spirit, bringing us to Christ for justification and sanctification. Jesus the Christ. God’s faithful witness. Firstborn from the dead, and ruler over the kings of the earth—(Revelation 1:5).   

All glory is yours, Father Almighty and the joy of the family of the Godhead pour unto those who believe. God bless everyone.
