And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber fast, while the Bridegroom is with them? as long as they have the Bridegroom with them, they cannot fast. But the days will come, when the Bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days. No man also seweth a piece of new cloth on an old garment: else the new piece that filled it up taketh away from the old, and the rent is made worse. And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: else the new wine doth burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the bottles will be marred: but new wine must be put into new bottles. (Mar 2:19-22)
When we repent of our sins and receive Him by faith we are made new creatures in Christ, no longer part of this sinful world and no longer conformed to this world and its ways and thoughts, but born again into His family, His Church, His bride. that we might do His will and accomplish His work in this broken and dying world. We are no longer to live for ourselves, or simply exist, but we are to serve Him who has called us out of darkness into His marvellous light. We are translated from the world of darkness and sin into His Kingdom of light and are now servants of the Most High GOD.
As servants of our Lord and children of the King, we are His ambassadors with the Word of righteousness and reconciliation, rightly divided and fitly spoken, that we might minister to those around us who are hurting and in need, as GOD leads us and provides for us to serve others. As His children and members one of another we are to love one another and disciple one another in His Word that we might be conformed to the image of His dear Son. As His ambassadors and witnesses of His Majesty and Glory we are to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to this lost and dying world in the power of the Holy Spirit and as we go proclaim the Good News of forgiveness through repentance and reconciliation with the Father through faith in His Son, that those who believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah of GOD might have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD, forgiveness from GOD, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
