A Choice To Change

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new” 2 Corinthians 5:17.

Why is it that old patterns recur in your life?

If you are a Christian, from the moment that you made Jesus Lord of my life, you were regenerated. You were changed from the inside out.  Then why is it that when you are stressed with the demands of life, that you sometimes act more like your old self than being new in Christ?

If you are a mom, have you every yelled at your kids?  Have you had a short temper with your spouse? Have you over-reacted to concerns? Are you easily upset? Do you stomp around the house and pout and slam doors?

You may excuse this type of behavior in your mind, because you felt provoked by the situation at hand. But think about how childish this behavior is. You must leave these old ways in the past, and choose a new future.

In your ongoing walk with Christ, ask for a continuing revelation of the miracle of a transformed life. You access this reality through the choices you make on a daily basis. Your will is a powerful force in the universe. God does not override your choice. You can choose to walk in the newness of life, or you can choose to walk in the old patterns of death. It’s your choice. If you are sick of your old patterns, then make a choice to change. Believe God and receive from His Spirit the divine ability to change.
