Salvation. The day that you accepted God’s gift and confessed Jesus Christ as your Savior. A second chance in life. To be who you truly are in Christ Jesus. However, when you uttered those words and salvation came upon you. It wasn’t only salvation, but a lifestyle; an opportunity to breach God’s spiritual realm. Not just to have a status of being “Saved,” but to be Christlike. There are those within the body of Christ who think that being saved is the primary thing of a believer, and you’re all done. Bing-Bang-and-Boom! You’re all set. However, they forget that faith with no manifestation is no faith at all. Let’s say I go to church Sundays, but the rest of the days I go to the local strip joint to check out the boobies… how does that make any sense? It doesn’t! That’s not being a true Christian. That’s being a religious titled person; using a religious label to seem like a righteous person, but in reality, he or she does the opposite of right. They only manifest a label, they forget to manifest the Christ within them. We need to go beyond just our salvation. We need to be filled with our spirit, and express the deepness of God’s wonderful love. Our life as a child of God is not only to be saved, but to show the light within us. To grow spiritual; explore God’s never-ending knowledge. To be supernatural — go beyond what is natural. God wants us to grow and to be progressive in our spiritual journey. We were called with a purpose. You need to write your life’s book — don’t stay at the acknowledgement part.
“When you heard about Christ and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus. You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.” — Ephesians 4:21-24
