3 Changes after Christ Saves You p3

February 8, 2011

I have been talking about how after a person begins a relationship with Jesus Christ, there are certain things that have to change. The first thing to change is our hope and you can read that here. But it is not just our hope that changes, there are other things that should change too.

The second thing that I think changes in a person that comes to know Christ as their savior, is that their desire for sin should decrease. God is perfect, and He is making us like Him through sanctification and through that process our desire or want to sin should decrease. I think it would be a valid concern if a person was to proclaim Christ as their savior and then continue to actively pursue sin and selfish living.

Our desire for sin decreases-

We were once controlled by evil desires but not longer if we are with Christ.

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

Titus 2:12

training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age

Romans 6:1-12
