True Salvation Brings Immediate Change

When Jesus Christ comes
into your life and saves you, you are immediately changed you are
immediately a new person. He gives you a new heart, new eyes, new
desires, and you immediately change. I want to read for you about a
man that was saved when Jesus came into his life.
We read Luke 19:1 "He
entered Jericho and was passing through and there was a man called by
the name of Zacchaeus, he was a chief tax collector and he was rich.
Zacchaeus was trying to see who Jesus was and was unable because of
the crowd for he was small in stature. So he ran on ahead and
climbed up into a sycamore tree in order to see Him, for He was about
to pass through that way. When Jesus came to the place, He looked up
and said to him: "Zacchaeus hurry and come down, for today I
must stay at your house," and he hurried and came down and
received him gladly. When they saw it they all began to grumble
saying:"He has gone to be the guest of a man who is a sinner."
Zacchaeus stopped and said to the Lord:"Behold Lord, half of my
possessions I will give to the poor and if I have defrauded anyone of
anything I will give back four times as much." and Jesus said to
Him:"Today salvation has come to this house, because he too is a
son of Abraham. For the Son of man has come to seek and to save that
which was lost."
If we are in sin, we are
lost but when Jesus comes into our heart and He saves us, then He
saves us from sin he makes us new. He makes us children of God, and
immediately we are changed, we become children of God and we have the
desire to do the will of God. Many professing Christians claim to be
saved but they are sinners. They never changed because Jesus never
came into their heart, He never came into their life. When Jesus
comes into your life you are immediately changed, you are not a
sinner anymore. When Jesus comes into your heart, the light goes on,
and you see all the filth, all the wickedness and you want to get rid
of it immediately. You clean up your house, you clean up your heart,
and you make it a suitable dwelling place for Jesus Christ.
Jesus does not cohabit
with satan. He does not live in a dirty house, He does not live in a
sinful heart. We either have Jesus in us or we have satan in us. If
we are children of God and Jesus dwells in us, then we will not sin,
we will be pure and holy and we will seek to do the will of God, we
will be like Jesus. If Jesus comes into your life and you are saved
then you are not a sinner anymore. Have you been saved? Has salvation
come into your heart, into your house? Are you different from the
rest of the world? Are you living pure and holy for Jesus Christ?
May Jesus bless you.
