A New Edition
by Olawale Ogunsola
3/28/2015 / Salvation
There are various books on different subjects world.wide. They are written for different reasons. Authors have written, are writing and will continue to do so for their generation and coming ones.
One thing about books, most especially academic ones, is that they have new editions. There are many reasons for doing this. Many of such books are revised and enlarged to accommodate what was not in the old edition. In most cases, cover designs of the new edition are better than the old edition.
Do you know that life of man calls for a revision and enlargement? It will surely change the heart and behavioral pattern of such a person.
For instance, in 1990s there was a rich Philanthropist in a West African country, who was a Muslim. The man financed how a ship load of the Holy Bible was emptied into the sea.
Later, this man was incarcerated for declaring himself the President-elect of the country after his election victory was annulled. It was during this period that he read the Holy Bible TEN TIMES. What he read truly turned his life around for the best.
When the man died during incarceration, his first son was quoted as saying that what pained him most was he did not have an opportunity to interact with his NEW FATHER before he died.
This confirms the words of the Lord Jesus Christ to Nicodemus, a religious leader and teacher in Israel of Jesus days.
"Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."John 3:3.
Like many people today, Nicodemus wondered how this can be achieved after a person has attained adulthood. Jesus made it clear that it was not a matter of entering into the womb to be born again but to experience spiritual rebirth.
Anyone who will be born again must
* forsake his present wrong ways of living;
* be sober and regret over those bad ways;
* realise his helplessness to redeem himself;
* must invite Jesus Christ into his life to be the Lord and Savior;
* should do away with past misdeeds forever;
* must obtain a copy of the Holy Bible so he can read and think deeply on what he reads night and day with the aim of doing what he reads;
* must join an assembly of Believers in Jesus Christ for growth.
Do you have a new edition of your life? Or do you still retain the old condemned and outdated edition? Have you taken the above steps? Your life can have a new edition if you are really born again. Live to please your God alone, mankind will see your new cover as you radiate the glory of God.
Stay blessed and rapturable, the Lord is coming soon.
Scriptures quoted are from New King James Version of the Holy Bible.
