Slaves to Sin!

Slaves to Righteousness?

Since we have repented and come to faith in Jesus, we are no longer living in the world by its standards but we have been set free to live in the righteousness of God?

Many believers today are turning away from the truth of everything, because they want to be themselves, they want God in their pocket!

But that is not how it works, we have been bought with the precious blood of Jesus and we must obey God, letting go of everything that would hold us back from being followers?

This is why we have a comforter, the Spirit of God who leads and helps us, when we cannot do it alone, or are struggling!

John 3:3,   14-18,   Acts 2:3-4,   Romans 3:22-23,   6:22-23,   Ephesians 6:10-18,   Revelation 2:2.

Precious and Invaluable!

What we have been Given?

This a great time of the year to reflect on what God has done for us, between the Easter resurrection, the Ascension of Jesus and the coming of the Holy Spirit to those first believers gathered in Jerusalem for Pentecost!

We must consider that faith we have to believe the invisible and the impossible has been imparted to us through the ‘Good Works of Jesus and that we also have our belief which is invaluable more than anything this world can give to us.

Jesus said it to Satan during His time of temptation in the wilderness by Satan and this was written for us to in the society that we live in and face today. We must hold on and maintain what we have, while also sharing the love of Jesus that is in our hearts will all and those less fortunate in the world?

Matthew 4:1-1,  13:46,   1 Corinthians 3:15,   James 5:7,   1 Peter 1:7,  19,   2 Peter 1:1,  4.

Suffering Servant! Part-Three.

Gaining the Victory?

When Jesus rose from the dead on the third day, as He said He would He gained the victory over death and for us entry into the New Life!

We have to be born-again to taste Eternity, religious observance, wearing a Christian name tag, doing good works bowing down or praying to saints will not get us to Heaven?

The confession of sins, repentance and faith in the death of Jesus on the cross and His rising from the dead lets us know that God has forgiven our past failures and we know are in Him.

Matthew 17:33,   Luke 18:33,   John 3:3,   31-36,   Acts 4:12,   1 Corinthians 15:57,   1 John 5:4.

Suffering Servant! Part-Two.

Bearing our Shame?

Jesus took our sins away by placing them on His own body, that was in the appearance of a ploughed field! It was one thing for a man to die for a cause, it was another for Him to go through so much pain and misery for us who deserve nothing in truth from God?

What are we going to do this Easter, let it pass by, be traditional, keep celebrating it for the children without failing to respond to the serious side and seek our Salvation?

Luke 12:47-48,   John 19:17,   Hebrew 9:22,   12:4,   13:13,   1 Peter 2:24.

Our Mothers?

Always wanting the best!

Mothering Sunday is about showing respect and honour for our parents, who have done their best for us? Not all family situations are perfect for many reasons and not all of have had a happy relationship with our mothers?

This time of the year is to show our appreciation, but it should be more than gifts but rather service to see how they are doing and what they really perhaps need from us?

Mary was the mother of Jesus and she was at times really worried for her son, but she did not always fully understand what the role of her Son was until after the event!

Matthew 1:18-24,   2:11,  13:55,  John 9:23,  19:25,  Acts 1:14,  Ephesians 6:1,  Colossians 3:20.

Love and Forgiveness!

A lack of Today?

Next week millions will be spent on enjoying love, wither in marriage or outside it?

Marriage will breakdown, because of selfishness and the lack of the ability to forgive! Those vows of promises earlier will be lost in the failure to recognise it takes work to put things right!

God will not change, He does not want those who believe in Him to be lacking in anything, especially forgiving and loving others!

Isaiah 59:15,   John 3:16,   1 Corinthians 13:13,   Hebrews 13:14,   James 1:4,   Revelation 3:19.

Anti-Semitism!

The problems with Racism?

No human alive today on this planet can say that they are not without hating a race, colour, creed or religion, we are all guilty of this sin!

We like our own space and culture, we like to be with our own people and sometimes we do not want to mix with the other side?

Anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, sectarianism and a plethora of many more names sums up this kind of hatred and jealousy of each other including racism!

God told us that He gave His one and only Son Jesus, because He loved the world, meaning all races, skin colours! But it is the sin in our own hearts that blocks us off from either coming to the truth of the New Life or holding on to that promised Eternity!

Ecclesiastes 7:7,    Jeremiah 2:14,   29-11-13,    John 3:3,   15-18,   Romans 3:22-23,   6:22-23.
