Of course you are! I am too, the difference between a sinner who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior is forgiveness. The gift of God is forgiveness through Jesus Christ. You can’t buy it and you can’t earn it with good deeds or “working your way”!
The change that happens when God touches your heart is as drastic as giving you gills to swim under the water. It’s not a change that you can ignore or live without once He has changed your heart. If you live that way, your heart has not been changed by the Holy Spirit. Just as a fish can not get up and walk on land and breathe air, a changed heart cannot go back to the sin that was your normal way of life before your heart was changed.
If you are a member of the church and you’ve been baptized but you frequent beer joints and can’t remember even one scripture from God’s Word you may be fooling yourself. A heart, your soul, that has been fulfilled and changed so that Jesus is your Savior cannot and will not go back to those things that it was doing before the Holy Spirit changed you! Make sure of your salvation because when that Trumpet blows one day only those who have been changed will leave this world.
God changes each of us when we choose to follow Jesus when His Spirit touches your Spirit (heart) because He has work for you to do. Not work to become saved. You won’t be working to help Him save you, you will be working for His Kingdom now while you are alive and even after into eternity. Why does He call you to be His? Because the job that He has for you is specific to you and nobody on Earth can accomplish it except you. It may be the advice that you give your son or daughter or the witness that they see in your life and you are the only one that can reach them.
