As a christian you are being changed from the inside to the outside. This transformation began at Salvation, and now you are a new creation, you can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens you. (Phil 4:13)
Yes, Jesus now lives on the inside of you and you know for sure you are ‘Born Again.’ And yet, you still feel exactly the same.
The reality is that you may be dealing with inner hurts, fears and fleshly sins from years of living in the World! (Certainly was in my case!) In which case, join the club! We all go through ‘fleshly’ living during our sanctification process. The worst thing you can do though is to try fighting against the flesh, as a means of changing the old ways.
Yes, you may be able to alter your thoughts, behaviour and attitudes a little so as to function slightly better in relationships etc.,. But you won’t have changed fundamentally until you become as ‘Christ Jesus!’ Which begets the question: Then how do we become as Christ Jesus? The answer is, it is a complete and absolute miracle! If it were not so, you would never become like Christ Jesus – After all, He is God.
The transformation happens from the inside to the outside.
This is how I see it: God has given me a measure of faith – just a little seed-sized faith which, frankly, wouldn’t change anything in its’ own power. But when I invest my little seed of faith in the enormity of Jesus’ huge faith then ‘KAPOW!’ That’s when the real action takes place. I’m becoming like Jesus without the self effort!’ The reality is that it is no longer I that lives but Jesus Christ that lives in me, and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith IN HIM – JESUS! (Gal 2:20)
And as I meditate on God’s Word and choose to believe His opinion of me, so I am becoming more and more like Jesus. But, it is not by my strength nor by power but by His Spirit that lives in me, conforming me to HIs image. It is Jesus in me that makes the difference BUT only when I choose to invest my tiny seed-sized faith in to the enormity of His Wonderful Faith. In other words: my faith is now based upon the faith of Jesus and Him alone.
