Lesson 6 - The Secret of a New Life

Have you ever wondered how you can become the person you really want to be? Why is it that when we try so hard we fail so often? At times we seem to be prisoners of our habits—chained in the dungeon of evil desires.

Unaided by the grace of God, we are all helpless prisoners. We are captives of our fallen sinful nature. We may desire to change, but we don’t have the power to change. Separated from God, we are subject to death. The death of Jesus paid the penalty of sin for every person. However, this gift must be accepted individually. It becomes effective when a person chooses to acknowledge Jesus as Saviour. God’s grace provides pardon from the penalty of sin. It also provides a new power for living. In our lesson today we will discover the real secret of power for living in the twenty-first century.
