For You to Win the World, You Need the Presence of God in Your Life.
We live in a world of lies and deception. It is an evil world, of sin, of which the devil took control to disgrace what God has made glorious. That would be human beings. God created man in His image and likeness in other words perfect. Yet, Adam and Eve’s sin and rebellion delivered His authority into the hands of Satan. Afterwards satan began to have dominion over the Earth and all nations.
“I am the way, the truth and the life…” (John 14:6)
He is the only one capable of delivering the human being. Many people who are in churches believe in Jesus, but outside, they believe their own lies and deception. Unfortunately they even take advantage and lie to others. However, when a person lives this way, it is impossible to live according to the justice and holiness from God. When a person is born of the Holy Spirit, they have the mind of the Lord Jesus. They will be able to live in the image of God.
“…Walk before Me and be blameless” (Genesis 17:1)
God didn’t mean it in the physical sense, but in terms of character. In other words being a true person. Being baptized in the waters is easy, the difficult thing is to be baptized with the Holy Spirit. For you to receive the Presence of God there are criteria and He will never reach a person who has no character, who carries sorrows, feelings, failures, pains and who turns his back on His teachings. But when you approach God willing to leave the mistakes and truly obey Him, God comes upon your life and you become a new creature.
So, when you decide to give your life to the Lord Jesus and be baptized, you need to repent of body, soul and spirit, with all sincerity. Ask God for help, because He wants to save you and bless your life. When you are lifted up from the waters, you live in a novelty of life, because the old nature has been buried. Whoever dies to the world and lives for God lives in a supernatural world.
“He who believes and is baptized will be saved…” (Mark 16:16)
For you to win the world, you need the Presence of God in your life.
