eSeed: Skyrocket or Star

Read 2 Corinthians 5:17 TLB

A fellow worked like the devil – he was crooked. But he professed conversion.

His boss asked, “Will he do an honest day’s work?”

His fiancé wondered, “Will he behave himself on dates?”

His mother questioned, “Will he act differently at home?”

Many go forward in meetings. Like a skyrocket they rise into the air. There’s a flash, a burst of color like a star, and then a blackened stick.

Why? He wasn’t a God-made star, just a man-made skyrocket; not a real Christian.

A real Christian is one who has been born again. The Living Bible says, “When someone becomes a Christian he becomes a brand new person inside. A new life has begun!”

Prayer: Father, we come to Thee for a new life, light and love. Keep our hearts soft and clean so we may be used by Thee: through Christ. Amen.
