Opinion: Unless you are saved, your life will reflect everything that has happened to you

Mark 16:15-16 says “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.”

When you celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, it is imperative to realize that his return is imminent and closer than what anyone could think. Therefore, you need to be intentional with reaching out to those who need to be saved, share the gospel and inform them that Jesus is the way, truth and the life. It is only through Jesus that people can be saved and know his power.

Until and unless a man is born again, his life will be a reflection of everything that has happened to him, starting from his lineage: where he was born, their nationality, locality, education, government, etc. All of these factors make up his life. This means he will be defined and limited to the environment and their earthly lineage.

In 2 Corinthians 5:17 we read that old things are passed away when you become born again. Suddenly, your life becomes something beyond what you see on earth, no obstacle that comes against you stops you from stepping into your destiny. You live in a new environment and follow new principles based on God’s word. You now live in righteousness and are no longer subject to illnesses and diseases, sin and death.

What a beautiful message that you can share with people that God sent his son Jesus to the world that we may be saved and have eternal life. Go on and share what is not known, reach out to those who cannot be reached, tell people that Jesus saves and has brought life to everyone who believes in him. 1 John 5:11-12 says “...and this life is in his son. He that hath the son hath life...”
