The Light of Christ Journey

Encouraging people on their journey with Christ

Be thankful that the good news changes people. What good news? I’m speaking of the Good News of Jesus! One of my friends’ daughters came to faith as a young adult. Although she had been in church her whole life, she never took the step of faith of surrendering her life to Jesus. That all changed one day, and it transformed her life. The hard look on her face was gone as the Holy Spirit softened her appearance. I would not have believed such a change in her outward appearance if I had not seen her with my own eyes.

This is the power of the Good News of Jesus, which transforms people’s lives and sets them on a new path. Perhaps you have been on a similar path? You know about Jesus, but you have never taken the step of asking Jesus to be your Lord and Savior. If that is true, humble yourself and ask Jesus into your heart. Or, if you know Jesus, the Holy Spirit may be calling you to rededicate your life to Him so that you can fulfill His plans for your life.

How Does the Good News Change Us?

 Mark 1:15” The time promised by God has come at last!” he announced. “The Kingdom of God is near! Repent of your sins and believe the Good News.” [1]

Paul tells us that Jesus came to rescue us, which is Good News. Colossians 1: 13 For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, 14 who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins. [2] 

Paul also writes that the Good News changes lives everywhere it goes. Colossians 1:This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world. It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God’s wonderful grace.[3]

The Lord Desires to Change You!

You may describe your spiritual life as stagnating, but the Lord today is calling you into more profound things. Say yes to the work of the Holy Spirit to let the Lord transform you. He wants to open doors for you in worship, your prayer life, and to be in His word. Deeper water is scary but, at the same time, exciting. Isaiah 64:And yet, O Lord, you are our Father. We are the clay, and you are the potter. We all are formed by your hand. [4] The Good News changes people. To hear more, listen here:
