Get A (New) Life

You need to get a life. And so do I. Not so much a better and improved life, but an entirely new life altogether.

When the Bible talks about the life of a Christian in contrast to that of a non-Christian, it never uses adjectives like “reforming,” “improving,” or even “recovering.” Instead, Scripture draws a bigger contrast: new versus oldlight versus darknessfriends versus enemies, and, most poignantly of all: life versus death.

A most basic definition of a Christian is one who has been given new life by God through Jesus. We need a new life.

And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved.

Ephesians 2:1–5

The big idea from this passage in Ephesians is that, without a new life from God, we are dead. And dead people are powerless—to do anything, much less to change their status…

And here is an example of a Thai missionary, Hack, taking what he has learned and discipling other guys to follow Jesus – just as Hack as learned from me – to know Jesus and follow Him.  Here, Paul and Pon share how they are growing with Jesus.

The True Meaning of the Cross

45 Now from the sixth hour darkness fell upon all the land until the ninth hour.
46 About the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “ELI, ELI, LAMA SABACHTHANI?” that is, “MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?”

Matthew 27:45-46

10 For as many as are of the works of the Law are under a curse; for it is written, “CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO DOES NOT ABIDE BY ALL THINGS WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF THE LAW, TO PERFORM THEM.” 11 Now that no one is justified by the Law before God is evident; for, “THE RIGHTEOUS MAN SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.” 12 However, the Law is not of faith; on the contrary, “HE WHO PRACTICES THEM SHALL LIVE BY THEM.” 13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us — for it is written, “CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO HANGS ON A TREE” —

Repent, จงกลับใจใหม่ – Thai House Church Cell Group

“Unless you repent, you will certainly die.” But what if feel like I can’t repent on my own? Is there hope for me? With Christ, yes. “Lord, help my unbelief!”

“ถ้าท่านมิได้กลับใจใหม่ก็จะต้องพินาศ” “ข้าพระองค์เชื่อ พระองค์เจ้าข้า ที่ข้าพระองค์ยังขาดความเชื่อนั้น ขอพระองค์ทรงโปรดช่วยให้เชื่อเถิด”

Jesus Died, The King of Glory, Died

4 Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows;Yet we esteemed Him stricken,Smitten by God, and afflicted. 5 But He was wounded for our transgressions,He was bruised for our iniquities;The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,And by His stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray;We have turned, every one, to his own way;And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted,Yet He opened not His mouth;He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,So He opened not His mouth. For He was cut off from the land of the living;For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.
10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him;He has put Him to grief.When You make His soul an offering for sin,He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days,And the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand. 11 He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied.By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many,For He shall bear their iniquities. 12 Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great,And He shall divide the spoil with the strong,Because He poured out His soul unto death,And He was numbered with the transgressors,And He bore the sin of many,And made intercession for the transgressors.
Isaiah 53:4-12
