You will have new thoughts, new attitudes, newvalues, and new sensitivities. New priorities will dramatically affectyour relationships. You will view everything in your life from a Christlike perspective.
Christianity is not something you add to yourlife; it is life! Nicodemus thought that salvation meant performingcertain religious exercises and holding to particular religiousteachings. He had no idea of the all-encompassing nature of salvation!When you become a Christian, God gives you a new heart so thateverything becomes new! God gives you a new mind, like that of Christ,so you think differently. He gives you new emotions, so you feeldeeply about completely different matters. You become sensitive tosin, so you are no longer comfortable with it. Your recreation will beaffected as you are made aware of what is honoring to God and what isnot. Your relationships will now be guided by the Holy Spirit.Destructive habits and attitudes, previously immune to change, will betransformed.
