It is not the World but We have to change..

When I initially came to know Christ, I thought, now things around me will all change, people will change and it is going to be a totally new world. I thought people will listen to me because Spirit of God is talking to me. But then it did not take me long to realize, it is a long way to go, it is not so easy and straighforward. I am in a world where everyone is talking to the Spirit. Everyone seems to know the truth, the fact is people are not ready to live by the truth. But thenslowly I realized, the world is still the same and it is I who has to change.

Romans 1:18-25The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities - his eternal power and divine nature - have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator - who is forever praised. Amen.

This world has always been the same, starting from Genesis till Revelation.. no change.. People don't listen to God. And God punishes them. Peopledo what is forbidden.. starting from Adam and Eve it goes on.. People know it is wrong.. People know the consequnces but still they go ahead and do it.

Deuteronomy 28:15 However, if you do not obey the Lord your God and do not carefully follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come on you and overtake you:

Now what am I doing here? What is that God wants me to do for Him? How am I going to be different? Hold the Spirit of God and obey, walk by it andface challenges. We know the conseqences of disobedience.. like the Prophets - Jeremiah, Isaiah, Daniel, or Jonah and Apostles. Pray for the Spirit of obedience and humility. Never be disobedient, God makes us walk in the unknown ways, they ways which the world has never tried to walk in. God reveals His truth and Love and existence. He keeps us walking in His own glory.

Isaiah 45:19I have not spoken in secret, from somewhere in a land of darkness; I have not said to Jacob's descendants, 'Seek me in vain.' I, the Lord, speak the truth; I declare what is right.

Jeremiah 9:3 “They make ready their tongue like a bow, to shoot lies; it is not by truth that they triumph in the land. They go from one sin to another; they do not acknowledge me,” declares the Lord.

You have brought up a very good point. We may become a new creation in Christ but everyday we must make a choice. We must choose to follow Jesus.

Blessings!

I remember having felt as you, Deepa, when Christ saved me: "... now things around me will all change, people will change and it is going to be a totally new world..." I was so excited and happy, but I learned -- as you -- that the change(s) had to be made within "me." It's a lengthy process and seldom easy, but the changes in me have come and are still coming.

I'm so grateful that Christ never gives up on us! His love carries us through; He will never leave us nor forsake us and always have our best interest at heart.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful blog!
