The Difference IT Makes
2 Corinthians 5:14-21
Have you ever been asked, “What difference does it make?” Sure, you have. I have, too. My favorite saying related to this question is, “That don’t make a heal of beans!”
In thinking through the sweet salvation we have through Jesus, I thought one day, “What difference does it make?” Let me ask the question a little differently. When a person comes to faith in Jesus, what difference does it make?
The person’s eternal destiny is changed. Yes! Hallelujah! When we get saved, our citizenship changes. Our names are written down in Heaven. We are no long bound for Hell. Heaven is our home. However, is that the only thing that changes?
When we get saved, the control of our lives changes. Jesus died for us, so that we may live for Him.
When we get saved, our character changes. We become an entirely new creature. We are no longer the same as we were before God saved us. When our character changes, we are the same person in public that we are in private.
When we get saved, our conduct changes. We act differently. We don’t merely get a new hobby like church-going. We act like a completely different person!
Remember, we represent Christ. Therefore, at the moment of salvation, Jesus changes us and makes a real difference in our life.
Do you love Jesus enough to let him have complete control over your life?
