“When someone becomes a Christian, he becomes a brand new person inside. He is not the same any more. A new life has begun!” (2 Corinthians 5:17) (TLB) “Isn't this what we told you, while we were slaves, to leave us alone? We said it would be better to be slaves to the Egyptians than dead in the wilderness” (Exodus 14: 12) (TLB) More
The Holy Spirit of God has helped me to write this letter to you to welcome you into the body of Jesus Christ, the good Shepherd and also to educate you on one or two things that you must know in your first few years as a Christian. This is necessary so that you can really enjoy these early Christian days and also be strengthened to continue in the faith that you have embraced. I want you to lift up your eyes and read the first bible passage I have up there at the beginning of this letter. Can you see it? Please read carefully through it. I have quoted from The Living Bible version so that you can understand the meaning at first read. 2 Corinthians 5:17 should be the first bible passage you settle down to understand immediately you become a born again Christian. You can ask the Holy Spirit to tell you more about it. In fact, you will have to learn more things about that scripture from the Holy Spirit all through your Christian life on this earth! It has everything to do with what Christianity as a faith stands for. You can also have a trusted and matured Christian leader or friend explain it to you. That bible passage is the biblical description of the Jesus life that you will now begin to live. This report is intended to tell you something about this passage, this is the reason why I have written this letter to you.
