In the areas of social media, you have an opportunity to let people know more about you. You can attach personal details of who you are and who you are associated with to your profile. One of the ways to do this is by clicking the status button customizing it to your current life situation. If you are single, married, just got engaged or divorced . . . Whatever your status, you can let the world know.
A lot of those statuses come by way of change. Particularly, the change of entering into a new relationship or leaving an old one. Because of what Jesus did, and because of those who made that decision that they needed Christ as their Savior and accepted Him as their own, now their status in this world has changed.
How awesome is that!
In our spirit, when we accept Him as our Savior, we clicked the status button and changed who we are or are not associated with. We let the everyone know that we have left our old relationship with the world and entered into a new one with Jesus. We put on it blast that the life people used to see in us no longer exists. We blow up the spiritual timelines with the transformation that has taken place deep down in our souls.
Now there is a special, heavenly bond between God and us. No longer are we just mere men and women. Now our status says that through Jesus Christ we have been changed and our position in the world is known as being His child (John 1:12; Galatians 3:26). Now our profiles read that the condemnation that once hung over our lives has been lifted (Romans 8:1). Now, we are now free in Him to experience life anew (John 8:36). Now, we are able to cry out to Him, “Abba, Father” (Galatians 4:6). Now, we are carriers of His Spirit and He lives in us (1 John 4:13).
In our new relationship with God, our focus is no longer on what has been, but now it is on the promise of what will be. Our future now looks brighter than our yesterday. Our outlook on this life is now based on our new status in heaven. Our hope for a better tomorrow is completely bound up in Him whom I am connected with today!
“The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God,” (Romans 8:16) and our status has been changed!
