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.

Easter. Part-One.

The Last Supper.

Jesus met with his disciples in the upper room to celebrate the Jewish Passover (Pesach), to remember God’s deliverance of His people from Egyptian slavery. Exodus Chapters 12-15.

It was at the table that Jesus revealed who was going to betray him, Judas Iscariot, but he also warned Peter that he would deny him and all of them would desert him soon. Matthew 26:14-30, Mark 14:10-31,  Luke22:3-34, John 13:21-30, 36-38.

We may like to boast in what we have, who we are and what we can do, but to be a real believer in Jesus will cost you. We are expected to take up our cross daily and follow. We are also asked to share in His struggles too. Are you up to it?  Luke 9:23-25. Romans 6:16.
