Some people talk about being a Christian as if it is merely a decision made in the past, a decision that has little effect on the way you live your life on a daily basis. But this is a far cry from Scripture’s teaching about what it means to belong to Jesus. In this sermon from 1 Thessalonians 5:23–24, David Platt explains how Jesus transforms everything about us when He comes to live in us, transforming us from the inside out. And this transformation prepares us to come face-to-face with Jesus on the last day (either at death or when Jesus returns). Because God’s judgment will be final and irreversible, we should make certain now that Jesus is, in fact, our life, so that we might escape eternal judgment and instead enjoy eternal satisfaction with Him.
