Why is it we see a person meet Jesus, get born again, begin to bring forth fruit of a changed life, and then we see another person meet Jesus, get born again, and they bring forth little to no fruit? There seems to be a genuine lasting change in one person's life but then in the other person's life no lasting change. Sometimes you will see change for just a short time and then they'll go back to the old life they came out of. This may have happened to you. I know it happened to me.
Why is it we see some people come to Jesus and get delivered from destructive lifestyles and other people seem doomed to remain in bondage? Why is it we see some people set free from depression, sexual addiction, cutting, self-hatred, eating disorders, drug addictions, alcoholism, anger, lying, cheating, stealing (the list goes on and on) and some do not? WHY do we see more change in some people's lives than others? It is a question that has challenged me my entire born again life. If God is the creator of the born-again experience, then why does it appear that some of his handiwork is beautiful and fruitful and others appear to be a flat failure? Something is wrong; there is a breakdown somewhere. We know there is nothing wrong with God, and if there is nothing wrong with God there can be nothing wrong with his finest work the beautiful work of redemption through Jesus.
God is the artist behind the born-again experience, but it appears some of his work is unfruitful. We know that thinking is wrong, so what exactly is the answer? The answer is simple. The answer is easy. The answer is Jesus and his amazing grace. I invite you to come and see how all the things you have been striving so hard to gain and accomplish are easily received in an abundance of grace. Amazing grace keeps us connected and fruitful, not in our strength, but his.
