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.

Terrorism. Part-Two.

‘Dark Forces.

People who are angry and not heard as we saw recently in Norway are right across Europe and the world. As Christians in politics we do so need to encourage everyone with their grievences to be heard and not ignored.

Sometimes what we will hear we disgust us, but hear it will help to heal any wounds that left festering as we should know will lead to a conflict. Jesus was not political, but when shown a coin, said ‘Give to Ceaser what is his and then give to God.

We need to learn to respect those in authority both in the government and in the ekklesia.

Mark 12:14-17,  Romans 13:1-7,  Titus 3:1, 1 Peter 2:13-17.

Myth and Fables. Part-Two.

As we have seen Myths, Fables, Legends are all good stories, either extended lies or exaggerated truths.

Today many people believe that the Bible is a book of fables too, but the reality is that it is the only book that tells us about human life, conduct, condition and failure along with our desperate need of God to help us get out of and set us free from ourselves. Genesis Chapter 3.

The bible warns us that we must not rely on fables to guide us in our lives, but rather hear what God, through His son Jesus is saying to us and obey him. 1 Timothy 1:4, 4:7.
