Transformed, Directed and Set On Fire by God
When God leads you, it will lead you to Him, to His word, and to righteousness. Because we are “in Christ,” and because we know Him as our supreme Lord, we live for Him with our focus on the heavenly and eternal, rather than the earthly and fleshly. This is all driven by Christ’s power to completely change us into “a new creation” because “the old things have passed away and new things have come.”
Our challenge is in part to forget those things that have been left behind, and to strive to go forward to His future for us that lies ahead. God gives us new life so that we may go forward—not to stay stuck in place by fear. And although we move forward with confidence in Him, we must also walk with humility, knowing that our confidence is in Him, not in ourselves. Our purpose is to glorify Him with our lives, and this is accomplished by living yielded to Him and following His direction.
Knowing that He has reconciled us to Himself, our purpose also is to be ministers of reconciliation for those who are lost, that they may also be reconciled to God through the grace of Jesus Christ.
We must be aware that we cannot be effective agents of reconciliation if we fall into a lukewarm condition; we must kindle the fire of devotion to Him who poured out His life for us.
