A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD
II 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.”
We are living in a time when there is much talk of religion but few practice it.In my lifetime I have seen some ole time, Holy Ghost, sin killing conversions.But today yousee few that talk about getting saved change their lifestyle.Old time conversions people got rid of their liquor bottles. (Prov. 20:1, 23:31)They threw their tobacco away. (I Cor. 6:20)They threw their reading literature that was full of trash out in the burning barrel.(Acts 19:19)Their vocabulary changed as they stopped telling dirty stories, foul talk and swearing. (Eph. 5:4)The Lord’s Day became precious to them.
They had a hunger and thirst after righteousness (Matt. 5:6)Someone asked George Beverly Shea how much he knew about God. He said, “I don’t know much, but what I do know has changed my life.”Many today talk about being saved but go on living a life of sin.Yes, it is a different world.
Living a life of interity we must choose a Biblical lifestyle
