~ Cleansing us from sin is the business of the Holy Spirit ~

 

SALVATION is beautiful. However, as believers none of us are exempt from sin.  We are all “SAVED” by GOD’S grace. But what makes us  different  is we as believers have been given the gift of God’s precious  Holy Spirit that dwells within us. We are to ask God to fill us whenever necessary.

 

Our body is a Temple where His Holy Spirit, His Comforter resides.  His Spirit is the keeper and restorer of our souls.  And the Holy Spirit has cleansing power and  is able to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. “I  AM THE TRUE VINE, AND MY FATHER IS THE HUSBAND MAN.  EVERY BRANCH IN ME that beareth not fruit He taketh away. AND EVERY BRANCH THAT BEARETH FRUIT, HE PURGETH IT, THAT IT MAY BRING FORTH MORE FRUIT.    NOW YE ARE CLEAN THROUGH THE WORD WHICH I  HAVE SPOKEN UNTO YOU.  ABIDE IN ME, AND I IN YOU…” JOHN 15

 

 

Christ Jesus has imputed His righteousness to us. There is genuine grace, joy, peace, security & significance in the Lord. For this we can be thankful.  It is important to make God a priority.   For He can keep us on the Narrow Path.  It is the road less traveled.  There is much going on in the world today.  Make sure you set aside some time with the Lord in His Word and allow Him to direct your path. 

 

 

“We are to be in the world but not of the world.”

 

 

And be not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove  what is the good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”   Romans 12

 

GOD KNOWS HIS OWN!

 

We as believers  learn to sin less as we daily  “Walk in the Light.”  God’s Word is more than able. “Thy WORD is  a Lamp unto my feet and a Light unto my path. I Have sworn, and I will keep thy righteous judgments.”  Psalm 119  We are without excuse.  For God is always willing and ready to help us in any and every situation. Therefore, we should readily REPENT whenever we realize that we have sinned.  For sin keeps us separated from God. This is true if it is by commission or omission.   We are to actually embrace and daily live by His Word as His people.

 

 

“Draw nigh to GOD and HE will draw nigh to you!” 

We, God’s  people  from all over the world who have truly accepted Christ Jesus into our hearts as our Lord and Savior make up God’s universal Church.   There are many places of worship throughout  the world where we can gather together and worship, thank  and praise God.  God knows whenever our worship is sincere. Worship is a time to recognize GOD for for who HE is, and what HE means to us.  A sacred time  to reverence HIM!!! 

 

 

God has only (1) one CHURCH. We should  always honor God and “Worship  Him in Spirit and in TRUTH!”  Know that God is forever omnipresent. Therefore, we can call upon our Lord and Savior Jesus to help us at anytime and anywhere.  He is our Almighty  Sovereign God,  and He is omnipresent.  “What a mighty GOD we serve!” We know not the hour or the day?  However, we are to daily live as though we are expecting Christ Jesus to return at any time. 

 

 

We do not demand  GOD to do whatever we want.

 

We can pray (talk to GOD) wherever we are 24/7.  Keep in mind His Holy Spirit can keep and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Therefore, we should always approach God in a respectful manner. Such as: “Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name…”  For God is not a man nor a  genie.  As God, we should always reverence Him. We are to daily exalt God!  Each day is an opportunity to build an ongoing, personal intimate, up close  transparent relationship  with Him.  God already knows what we are going to say or what we all think. Therefore, we do not simply demand Him to do whatever we ask. But as men, women and children of God we are to share, preach, teach, proclaim and daily  live out loud His Word!   He is our Creator & Maker. We can always & forever trust  God and His Word. For God has promised to “Supply all of our need according to HIS riches in Glory by Christ Jesus!” Philippians 4

 

 

Unbelievers are encouraged to get to know GOD

 

As for the unbelievers who have not accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior, we are to encourage them to embrace the Truth of God’s Word. But we must first believe HIS WORD ourselves.  We are to demonstrate our faith and belief in God by the manner in which we live and approach life.  For those who oppose the Word we are to be living examples.  We do not have to argue or force GOD’S WORD upon anyone. However, we should know  that The WORD of GOD is HIS infallible  TRUTH! ” In  God we have been given much liberty.  But we are also accountable to Him.  We have a responsibility to the LORD to be a daily reflection of Him to the unbelievers of this world.

We Need To Pray

Everyday on my way to the office I pass by this church building. Most days I don’t pay it much attention, except for Thursday. On Thursday, there is a long line of people made up of women, men, and children, pretty much all races of people. Some are able bodied, some are in wheel chairs. All are there to receive the food that is handed out by the church.

It is indeed a very good thing this church does. I can only imagine that for some in the line, its’ the best meal they get all week.

Each Thursday as I past the line, I say to myself, “If it wasn’t for the grace of God, there go I”, and immediately acknowledge,thank God, and whisper a prayer for those in the line. I often ask myself, why is this, then I’m reminded of the scripture “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). Yes we will have trials and tribulations, but we must still be faithful during the trials & tribulations. We need to pray.

This scene at the church also reminds me of a song from years ago, which I use to play for one of the many choirs I directed. It escapes me who wrote it, however the lyrics causes one to reflect on some of the troubling times people experience in life, from which none of us are exempt. Some have greater needs than others, but we all have need to Pray.

“If God Gave Us Everything We Need, Then We Wouldn’t Have Need To Pray”

Somebody’s heart must be broken each day
Sorrow and sadness, must come somebody’s way
Somebody’s life, must be filled with despair
Nowhere to go, but to God in prayer

Someone must go hungry, and beg for bread
No shelter to cover, his poor weary head
No one to care, and no one to share
Another day’s burden, that seems so hard to bare

Oh, but there must be hills and mountains to climb
Roads that are rough, and troubling times
If God gave us everything we need
Then we wouldn’t have need to pray

I can remember growing up how I would hear the elders (of which I am now one), say “Prayer is  the Key, and Faith unlocks the door”.

We need to Pray that God will keep us thru this coronavirus pandemic.

We need to Pray for the homeless, the sick, and those who are having difficulty in this life.

We need to Pray for this world, which is quickly spiraling down a slippery slope.  Not that we can save it, but we can snatch some from the fire.

We need to Pray for the saints, that in these last and evil days that they will be able to stand, suited in the armor of God, so they can quench the fiery arts of  the evil one.

We need to Pray for God to give us the “courage” to stand on his principles and  promises. Many claim to be in the army of the Lord, but We need to Pray for the “coward” soldiers. For God don’t want, don’t need, and can’t use a coward soldier.

We need to Pray.   For our children and grandchildren that they will stay connected to God, and to one another, for there is strength in unity.

We need to Pray for the sinner, that he or she will come into the knowledge of Jesus Christ, and make him Lord of their life. For we know that at the name of  Jesus, every knee is going to eventually bow, and every tongue is going to confess, that He is LORD.

We need to Pray that we will be in that number when the trump of God sounds, and  the dead in Christ rise, that we who are alive and remain, will e caught up to meet them in the air. 

For then, there will be no more sadness, broken hearts, or despair. No more trials and tribulations. No more dying and no more crying. All preaching will be over. For Heaven will be our home for eternity. This is where the wicked will have ceased from troubling, and the weary are now at rest. And all of the saints and the angels, are sitting at HIS feet and being blessed.

We Need To Pray!
