“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”- 2 Corinthians 5:17
Salvation is the most significant event in a believer’s lifetime. It is the moment a person’s eye is unveiled to see between good and bad. It is that moment a person receives the grace to boldly step out of darkness into light, onto the righteous side. If you’ve gone through your salvation moment - Congratulations again! There are questions to think about after getting saved. Questions like, what is next after salvation? What do I do now? How do I hold unto my salvation? How do I relate with God? Can I connect to God directly? Can I hear from God myself? How do I deal with life different from the way I have dealt with things before salvation? How do I get help from the Holy Spirit? and the list continues.
There is indeed life after salvation. Having a deeper knowledge of salvation is definitely helpful and can help you maintain your salvation. It is an entirely new beginning when you get saved. God delights in this new beginning and He takes great interest in this season of your life. He introduces Himself as “The Beginning” in Revelation 22:13. God is interested in anyone who decides to turn away from their sinful ways and start a brand new life with Him.
God begins a new thing when there has been chronic oppression. God begins a new thing when rottenness and corruption abounds like the case of Sodom & Gomorrah. God begins a new thing when evil has dwelt for so long. God begins a new thing when people are willing to be delivered from their chains. God begins a new thing when the cry of His people come up to Him as the cry of the Israelites went up to Him from Egypt. God begins a new thing in the life of a person immediately they decide to give their life to Christ and become saved. God begins a new thing in the life of the newly saved because He never patches things up. He doesn’t build on rottenness, He creates a whole new beautiful story for the saved.
After salvation, God brings the new believer into a new season called “New Beginnings”. It is a season of reconstruction, a season of extracting old ruins from the foundation and building afresh.
Next week, we will continue the lessons on new beginnings after salvation to help you stay on course your salvation journey without looking to the left or right. If you are not yet saved; it is not too late to enter into your new beginnings.
Jesus, I accept you as my Lord & Savior today. Forgive me of all my sins and purify my life with your blood. Let me know you and the power of your resurrection in my new journey with you. Amen
