And they have the Change
to Prove it
What is the Change?
"Therefore if any man be in Christ
(Saved, Born Again), he is a
new creature (new person, new
creation): old things are passed away; behold, all things are
become new." 2 Cor. 5:17
Those who are saved become a new
person. Outwardly, you will still look the same, but inwardly
God has made a huge change. You may make some changes yourself
and you should, but this is not the change in reference. It is
a God-made change.
What kind of Change?
God puts this one thing, plus much more, but at least this one
thing in every new heart,
a desire to tell others ...
* "I have been born again."
* "I am forgiven."
* "I am on my way to Heaven. Wouldn't you like to know, too?"
When God gives you this change, you
will have the proof of being saved, born again, because you got what
they Bible promises to everyone who has done what the Bible says to
received Jesus Christ as Personal Saviour from sin.
Many express a sense of a weight lifted from their shoulders.
This release of the burden of sin is also a good sign of the proof of salvation.
"As far as the east is from
the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions
(sins) from us."
The Bible - Book Of Psalms -
Chapter 103 - Verse 12
(God), even I, am he that
blotteth out thy transgressions
(sins) for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins."
The Bible - Book of Isaiah -
Chapter 43 - Verse 25
Faith in Christ does the saving.
The changed heart does the proving.
"Knowing this, that our old
man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed,
that henceforth we should not serve sin."
The Bible - Book of Romans -
Chapter 6 - Verse 6
Our former heart, "our old man", is
crucified with Jesus. The "new man", changed heart, should not
serve sin any more.
If you do serve sin in the future, it is not a sign that you have
lost your "new heart", but a sign that you have backslid to the "old
man", former heart, old heart.
Staying in the "new man" is not a sign of being saved. Having
received the "new man" at any point in time past is the indication
of having been saved.
