Is It Real?
If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. --2 CORINTHIANS 5:17, KJV
It may have happened to you at a Billy Graham Crusade. Perhaps it was during a telecast of The 700 Club or during a conversation with a friend. Maybe you were alone with God when it happened. But some-how, someplace deep within, you believed that Jesus of Nazareth, God's Son, died for your sins and rose from the dead to be your Lord and Savior. Then that belief grew into action, and you called out, "Jesus, I take You as my Savior. I surrender to You. Be the Lord of my life!"
Then something wonderful happened. A deep peace came over you. No more internal fighting. No more running. Your sins were for-given. You were part of the family of God. It was as if you had been born all over again. Old things were gone; everything was new. For the first time, you truly understood God's love.
But now some time has passed, and you're wondering if anything has changed. It is common for new Christians to wonder if anything actually happened when they prayed. It seemed so wonderful, so easy-almost too good to be true-that many have thought that maybe it wasn't true at all.
In a court of law, the truth of a matter is established by evidence. The statements of witnesses are accepted in court as valid evidence. To prove the reality of your experience with Christ, God has given you three witnesses: His Word, His Holy Spirit, and your changed life. As you examine the Word, as you receive the assurance provided by the Holy Spirit, and as you look at the evidence of your new life, you will know that blessed assurance that Jesus is truly yours!

God gives us evidence that we truly know Him through His Son, Jesus Christ.

I say rare because in my own experience, it's either been one or the other-not both at the same time.

The world's idea of justice and freedom fall short of their purpose. Prison bars keep the guilty from repeating their crime while behind them.
