Being born again leads to
who ever came in contact with Jesus was changed. Anyone
who claims to be a "Christian" is saying that
they are a "little Christ". This implies a follower
- a disciple. This again means change (from our own nature
to that of our Lord).
Everyone who accepts Jesus
as his or her Savior will change! 2 Cor. 5:17 "Therefore
if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things
are passed away; behold, all things are become new."
This is also called transformation, and it is a continuous
Where there is no "new
life" or change, we can reasonably conclude that
faith and trust are not present. Jesus talks about knowing
things by their fruit, i.e., by the results they produce.
No matter how much we mature, we still live in dependence
upon God. We grow in goodness by continually allowing
Christ to work more completely through us. Have you changed
since believing? Have you changed lately?
