Recently I heard of a God fearing man who was asked the following unusual question- “Did you lose anything when you became a Christian?” But it was the Christian gentleman’s answer that I found most fascinating and informative. He replied, “Yes- before, I had an old slouch hat, a ragged suit and holes in my shoes. I drank to excess and quarreled with my wife. I lost all that.” “Yes,” he concluded, “I lost many bad things when I accepted Christ.” Paul the Apostle, writing to the Corinthian believers of his day explained clearly what really happens when anyone sincerely invites Christ into his or her life, saying, “therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, behold all things have become new.” When this takes place, you lose your fear of death, and your guilty conscience. In their place, you receive the forgiveness for all wrong-doing. That is surely the best bargain ever offered. Have you taken it?
