Sin hardens a person's heart and even makes them not want to serve God any longer. Therefore, repent before it is too late.
The thing about sin is it is detrimental to our lives and our walk with God. Because it hardens our hearts to God and leads us to do things that are wicked, His presence is no longer in our lives either to protect us. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I am so grateful for the cross. I can never give You enough thanks and praise for what You have done for mankind. We were all lost without You and in need of a Savior, until the day that You stepped into this world to save us all. Even putting upon Yourself flesh was a sign of Your great humility and love for mankind. While on earth, You taught us how to live our lives and brought hope to everyone that listened. You even suffered by the hands of the people freely because You love all people and wish that they would repent and be drawn unto You for salvation. There is surely no one like You, God. My heart is filled with peace just to know what You did for me. I can't even imagine the suffering You went through while You were raised up on the cross. This brings tears to my eyes just thinking about this. I surely did not deserve Your compassion, but You suffered that I might have mercy. In my sins, I had no way out of my bondage and because You bled and died, I have new life. Thank You for hearing my cries and seeing me in all my sins and still forgiving me. I needed a way out of all my shame and You took it upon Yourself that I could be free. Wow, I am so grateful God. Thank You Lord. Surely, I am sanctified and washed because You loved us first and want everyone to experience eternal life. This I know Lord, for You are my King and I am born again because of what You did for me. I will forever love You and trust in You all my days. Amen.
Hebrews 2:10-13 (KJV)
10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,
12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.
13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.
Hebrews 2:1 (KJV)
1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.
Jesus suffered for our sins on the cross that we might be sanctified through His blood. Those that receive Him are washed clean and forgiven.
The salvation of the Lord Jesus came through the cross and His resurrection. We have forgiveness for sins, as we call upon His Name and put our trust in Jesus. Continue Reading
Lord, I pray that people of Your church will not deny You, but follow in Your ways. Help them see in themselves the sinner they are and confess those sins to You today. I pray that nothing will be held back, but everything will come out in the open. For every person that these people have hurt, may their soul lead them to do whatever it takes to heal the broken relationships it has caused. I know there are so many evils in this world and unfortunately, if people do not wake up to their sins, they will not be with You in heaven. So please come and wake every wicked person up that says that they are a Christian to live like that. May they understand that alcohol and drugs is deterring themselves from being sober and being led by the Holy Spirit. Also, help them flee from sexual immorality, which includes pornography and any other sexual sin, which defiles the body and Your holy temple. These things will only destroy a person and leave them in hell, if repentance is not given to You, Lord. I know this to be true, for I was a victim of these things, until You came into my life and cleansed me of my sins. I had no way out of the bondage and addictions that held me down, but You gave me a way to escape it. I now know that anyone can be changed because of what You did for me. Your blood has forgiven my sins and I pray that many others will also be washed clean as well. I pray for these lost souls, Lord. I pray that before time is up, that they will decide to give themselves to You fully. I love You Lord. Amen.
Titus 2:11-14 (KJV)
11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
Our faith in Christ leads us to live apart from the lusts of the flesh. This includes being sober minded and living for God.
How can you be led by God if you are out drinking? Know ye not that this offends the Holy Spirit each time you do this?
Paul taught that Christians should “flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.” Continue Reading
Lord God, I pray that our desires will be for You each day. Fill us with Your counsel, that we may know what is right and what wrong. And point us to always choose to do Your will and run from any form of ungodliness and sin. Give us wisdom and direct us in the ways that we ought to go. Be with us always, that we may not fall victim to the sins of this world. I know that I am stronger with Your presence in my life. As we have faith in You, Lord, may it be a shield to fight against Satan and his temptations. I know the shame that comes from the bondage of sin and I am so grateful to have You lifted it off of my shoulders. I was once in darkness and You have come and raised me into Your light. Where I was once alone in this world, You have given unto me the gift of the Holy Spirit. Now my soul is comforted and I have eyes to see. All the fear that was in me is gone. That is because You have done a mighty work inside of me. What a wonderful time it is to be in Your presence and to learn of You each day. As I come unto You, I want more and more of You and less of me. May You always abide in my heart, that I might walk worthily in Your sight. It is my greatest desire to do Your will above all else, for Your ways lead to life eternal. Your gospel is truly sweet to my ears and I can never learn enough, when it comes to Your ways. May my eyes and ears always be open to learn more each day. I love You Lord. Amen.
2 Timothy 1:7,8 (KJV)
7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
8 Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;
When we abide in Christ Jesus, we are filled with His love and strength. There is peace, for His power is with us wherever we go.
We know that after this life is all set and done that we will be with Jesus in heaven. Death comes to everyone, but those that loved the Lord will be with Him forever. Continue Reading
