This post seeks to identify the ten personal Blessings of accepting the gospel and giving one’s life to the lord and saviour Jesus Christ.
Therefore if anyone is in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], he is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life]. 2 Corinthians 5:17 (AMP)
It Brings one into Christ
If anyone accepts the gospel, the person automatically comes into Christ, that is he/she is grafted in Him as saviour, taking all your guilt, sin and shame and giving you his righteousness, you become complete in Him Who is the head over all rule and authority—of every angelic and earthly power (Colossians 2:10).
You become alive with Christ
One personal benefit of the gospel is that once you receive it you receive the life of God eternal life and you become alive with Christ (Ephesians 2:5), become free from the law of sin and death (Romans 8:2), you become far from oppression, and will not live in fear (Isaiah 54:14).
You are born of God, and the evil one cannot touch you (1 John 5:18)
Once you accept the gospel Blessings is that you become a new creature, ( 1 Corinthians 5:17) your spirit man is recreated in the image and likeness of God, holy and without blame before Him in love (Ephesians 1:4; 1 Peter 1:16) having the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16; Philippians 2:5) and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:7) would fill your heart and souls through Christ Jesus
Old things are passed away ( 1 Corinthians 5:17)
Once you accept the lord and saviour Jesus Christ the “old” man in the Greek is referred to as archaios other words include original, old, ancient such things are no more and you are renewed in the knowledge of God and no longer want to live in my old ways or nature before I accepted Christ (Colossians 3:9-10).
All things are new ( 1 Corinthians 5:17)
Once you accept the gospel one blessing is that you receive a new life opposite of your old life, having received abundant grace and the gift of righteousness and reign in life through Jesus Christ (Romans 5:17), the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Jesus, the eyes of my heart enlightened, so that I know the hope of having life in Christ (Ephesians 1:17-18).
All things are of God ( 1 Corinthians 5:18)
Accepting the gospel brings the blessing of the newness of life which all things are of God, as a Christian the newness of life does not permit anything in life which is ungodly and un-Christ-like (Romans 6:14-23; Romans 8:1-13; Galatians 5:16-26)
Reconciliation to God and given the ministry of reconciliation
Accepting the gospel and confessing Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and saviour, being born again—one of the blessings is that you become spiritually transformed, renewed and set apart for God’s purpose—through and by the living and everlasting word of God (1 Peter 1:23) which liveth forever.
Trusted with the ministry of reconciliation ( 1 Corin 1:18-24)
The blessing of accepting the gospel and being born again you become entrusted by God in sharing the word of God with others in your world, becoming God’s workmanship, created in Christ to do good works that He has prepared for me to do (Ephesians 2:10) That the light of God’s truth shines in your heart and given me knowledge of salvation through Christ (2 Corinthians 4:6).
You become an ambassador of Christ acting in Christ stead
Accepting the gospel and being born again you become an ambassador of Christ, becoming joint-heir with Christ (Romans 8:17), an ambassador for Christ (2 Corinthians 5:20), a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a purchased people (1 Peter 2:9) acting in the stead of Jesus Christ in dominion, conquering through Him who loves me (Romans 8:37) as God has equipped you with everything you need to live a godly life in His divine nature (2 Peter 1:3-4).
You become the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus
This is one of the Gospel blessings becoming the righteousness of God , having the right to stand with Him—in Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 5:21), making your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit that belongs to Him (1 Corinthians 6:19), becoming the light of the world (Matthew 5:14) Every day.
