Christians are brand-new people on the inside. The Holy Spirit gives them new life and they are not the same anymore. We are not reformed, rehabilitated or re-educated – we are recreated, new creations, living in union with Christ.
Looking back to the time before I committed to Jesus in 2011, I was such a completely different person then, compared to how I am now. Oh, I am certainly no angel, but I do believe the Holy Spirit prompts me when I am about to say or do something I shouldn’t. Reading the Bible and praying are ways to keep on track with God but I also listen to our Christian playlist regularly. It really does lift my mood.
I have previously shared this with you but make no apologies for mentioning it again. There is a beautiful, uplifting song called “No Longer Slaves” by Bethel Music, which inspired my website name – Childofgod54. Whenever I feel down, dispirited, unmotivated or depressed, that song is the answer. It automatically lifts my spirits whenever I hear it. The lyrics include the words, “I am no longer a slave to fear – I am a child of God.” Those words warm, comfort and soothe me on a regular basis.
