COULD IT BE?

COULD IT BE?

Could it be that GOD could ever love me?
Could it be HIS mercy is that wide?
Could it be that JESUS went to Calvary?
Could it be it was for me HE died?

So goes the first lines of a song I wrote several years age and later it says I have found the answer to that question.

A small church, a small congregation, an evangelistic service and on bowed knee all of it came into focus when another lost sheep was brought into the fold.

John 3:3 Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

The introduction of the term ”Born Again” changed the methodology of becoming into right relationship with GOD. The spiritual rebirth - - not a physical birth, put a different face on redemption.

Prior to this it was the same old me but temporally forgiven. Now it was a new me with GOD’S righteousness, not mine that gave me right standing before GOD.

2 Corinthians 5:17-18 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ

When we personalize those words “He is a new creature” it becomes “I am a new creature,” and is to be the guiding force in our life. This reality, when kept before us doesn’t permit us to engage in the things of the world but will cause us to walk uprightly before HIM. It is only when we forget who we are that we permit ourselves to walk in sin.

Think back on these words of Jesus; Luke 13:23-24 Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them; strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.

Because you have been redeemed you have much to treasure; for you are “Born Again” and are now a New Creature in Christ.
