I often speak about personal change and personal progress. The best way to turn your life around, however, is to turn it around from the inside out. Most of the time, we tend to change from the outside in, and there’s nothing wrong with that, but the best way to change is from the inside out. This means that you receive a touch from God in a way that you can’t comprehend or explain, but somehow it’s like your DNA has changed.
Have you ever experienced something in your soul, in the deepest part of who you are, that has transformed you? There is a feeling of renewal and being reenergized, as if there is a fire burning in your heart. This is coupled with a stirring on the inside, and slowly over time, everything else in your life begins to change. We call this salvation in Christianity. It’s the belief that your sins can be forgiven because Christ was crucified and raised from the dead. The result of that is that God fills you with His Holy Spirit, and you are changed from the inside out.
Friend, my prayer today is that you will experience this change from the inside out. Maybe you’ve tried the world’s way and it feels confusing. What makes life better is trusting the Lord, following His way, understanding the scriptures, and building a life around the spirit of God within. Let me encourage you today to just decide right where you are that you are going to follow Christ. Your life will be transformed as a result!
