Oh Lord, I pray that everyone that desires to be saved will come unto You today. May they desire to walk apart from the darkness, that You may guide them in Your light. Only when You give us eyes to see are we able to do what is righteous and stop doing what is evil in our own eyes. Truly, our sins are what weigh us down and keep us from following You, and I pray that if anyone is under bondage now because of an addiction, that You will cast it out in Your mighty Name, Jesus. Though they may be afflicted because of such things now, I know that You have the power to deliver them from the sins that they have committed. So convict them of what they did was wrong, that they may come humbly to You in prayer, in all their confessions. I pray that it may be sincere and that they may come unto You for a refreshing of the Holy Spirit in their lives. What You did for us on the cross is so powerful, since any person can be saved because of it. Because You paid the price for our sins, Lord, those that follow You and do as You say are saved. This can't be any better scripted. What a great God You are. I was so unworthy when I called upon Your Name for salvation. I was broken and tattered because of the sexual sins I had committed. Then, as I raised my voice to the heavens and cried out to You, Lord, You heard me. I was not left alone to suffer, because of my guilt and shame, but You rescued me. You took me by the hand and carried me out of the old life I was in and placed me on the right path. Only You could redeem a lost soul like me. Thank You, Lord. I owe all to You. May there be more salvations and many more souls be saved. To declare Your great Name and showing love to others brings me the greatest joy of all. Truly, You know that I love You and care for You with all my heart. I praise You, God. Amen.
Romans 7:4-6 (KJV)
4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
5 For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.
6 But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.
True joy is found in the Lord, not in the things of this world. His love is everlasting and nothing else fulfills us like He does.
When it comes to our new life in Christ, Paul described this new walk in great detail in Romans, chapter 7. How we are married to Christ when we believe in Him. Continue Reading
