Is it by tapping into latent powers within your mind or body?
Is it by becoming one with the universe and realizing you are God?
Is it through some esoteric technique or ritual?
No! It is by having a personal relationship with the resurrected Christ; coming to know Jesus in a real and personal way and living by the truth and principles in His Word.
The Bible is not a record of humans’ quest for God, but rather God’s revelation to humanity. Christianity is not merely one of a myriad of religions, but it is a relationship with the Master of the Universe. Jesus Christ is not one of many ways to salvation; His death and resurrection provide the only hope of eternal life.
In our next blog I will list the biblical principles God used to transform my life. Although as a teenager, I had violated every one of these on a regular basis, after giving my life to Jesus Christ at 18, I realized the essence of true strength and wisdom. God’s Spirit began to transform my life as I implemented these biblical principles.
Jesus really can change the life of one with seemingly little hope or potential. As you read each principle, contemplate how God would have you apply it to your life; then ask Him, by His Spirit, to begin transforming you.
The origin of the list came about during an outreach to Haiti. I had shared with several missionaries these biblical principles which have molded my life and ministry. They were so touched they suggested I make them available in poster format so they could be reviewed daily. The missionaries told me these were some of the most powerful truths they had heard and that every believer needed to be reminded of them.
You may want to place the list where it can be seen frequently. It will inspire and encourage you to walk in faithfulness with the Lord and honor His Word. May the Lord bless, guide and empower you as you grow in your relationship with Him and in reaching the full potential and purpose for which He created you.
