When we receive Jesus as our Savior,

we no longer need to focus on our sin.

Instead, we become dead to sin and do

receive grace to live in His righteousness.

When a person comes to know Christ there are steps that the Bible gives

to help them understand their newly found life in Him and to build a solid foundation that will last. Many new believers struggle without knowledge and are not given practical teaching that helps them along the way.  It is imperative to the life of a new believer that they be strengthened in their faith and given the basics of the Word of God. 

try as we may, or not really; for IF we give the sin an inkling of the ramifications of said activity there would be no less than a mountain of reason why the act should be not be a played hand. one sin is as bad as the other. that is to say, that the killing is as bad as adultery. and there can be a plethora of example to coincide with the raw fact: one sin is as bad as the other one. there is no grey area. sin is not allowed, ever. if it is on against yourself, it is in against the, our Holy Spirit; in ALL dwell; His Holy Spirit

be patient. forgive a brother, a sister; even a step-sister. each born under an exact exact curse as all. and forgive yourself. life is a journey, the cliffs will arrive, it’s up to us to be

running, or walking inline with the edge. IF we wander to close to the edge of eternity, the more apt we are to make the slightest motion towards the fateful plunge. try… be careful. that,s a period, not a comma.

love will fill each and every crack in the soul. souls that began with cracks has in it a propensity to widen the canyons that are already there by NOT believing the fact in

 ” So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.” Romans 6:11

Consider yourself dead. That’s a pretty striking statement. We love to talk about being “alive” in Christ. So why do I see so many Christians trudging through life powerless, purposeless, and lost in their pursuit of Jesus?

As Christians we don’t want to obsessively focus on our sin, yet no matter how much we resist, we often break our lives down into how many Christian boxes we can check off for the day.  Who we are remains tied to what we do, not what God has declared over us. Truly, it is a spiritual identity crisis.

We are still in bondage to the idea that we must prove ourselves before God. As a result, too many children of God move and breathe not fully walking in the empowerment the gift of grace provides.

The Grace of God

What do you think grace is? We toss the term around constantly in Christian circles. Sure, who doesn’t want to receive, live under, and enjoy the benefits of God’s grace? But too often the realities of grace and its power in our lives dwindle beneath false representations of its purpose.

I’ve heard it taught that grace is when God gives us what we don’t deserve. God bestows through grace a measure of love and power to His children. Yet that’s not how we often live grace out.

The entire idea of grace has become muddled and twisted into either a non-personal theological concept or a tool in the belt yielded towards self-serving spirituality. In the first case, grace is merely the gift from God offering salvation (which is true) but is not something we participate in daily. This idea accepts grace as an agent of forgiveness of sin but not eradication of sin. It’s an idea that we are loved despite our sin but not free from or dead to sin.

However, scripture reveals to us that grace is far more than a one-and-done cover up of sin. Grace empowers and enables us to live a perfect life the same way Jesus did.

The following are just a few verses giving us deeper insight to the power of grace activated in our lives:

  • John 1:16 encourages us that “his  (Jesus’) fullness we have received” as a result of “grace upon grace.”
  • 2 Corinthians 5:21 affirms that Christ Himself became sin so that through grace we might become “the righteousness of God.”
  • 2 Corinthians 9:8 reveals that God makes “grace abound to you” so that we will always have all we need to “abound in every good work.”
  • 2 Timothy 2:1 shows us that we can be “strengthened by grace”

The Abuse of Grace

Grace can also be abused. This happens when grace and truth separate. Grace and truth were always meant to operate in tandem.  If we continue to choose to serve our own agenda, boost our own reputation, and cling to even subtle areas of sin under the umbrella of grace, we are not experiencing the grace of God at all. We are trying to use grace for our own advantage and glory, not for God’s glory.

Grace activates the work of sanctification in a believer’s life. Galatians is dedicated almost entirely to this very issue. The grace of God reveals and washes us in truth so that we might repent from sin and live life Jesus’ way. Grace is a gift meant to change us and provide the strength and resources to complete it! Helping us feel better about ourselves in the midst of our sin is not the purpose.

John Bevere teaches “Under grace, we now have the nature of Jesus Christ and are able to live in truth at all times. We now have his integrity inbred in our very being. We are capable of being men and women who are like God.” 

When we allow God’s grace to sanctify us, it glorifies God and brings us into closer relationship with Him. This in turn empowers and fills us with joy!

Dead to Sin

“I’m just a sinner saved by grace” is a phrase all too often floating among Christian circles. Does that sound like considering ourselves dead to sin? This phrase instead confesses an identity marked by sin, fully negating the work of Christ on the cross.

As a child of God, made into the righteousness of God, cleansed and purified and empowered with His grace, we should never consider ourselves a sinner again. Grace is the key to our ability to reject this false identity and take on the identity of Christ. Through grace we consider ourselves dead to sin.

Romans 6:18 tells us we are now “slaves to righteousness”!  This means we, through the grace and empowerment of Christ in us, do not have to give in to sin. It holds no power. Instead, our true nature and natural tendencies are towards truth and life. When you truly believe this, you find it easier and more desirable to live according to your true nature, made righteous through Jesus.

This doesn’t mean we never struggle with sin again. However, it does mean that sin no longer has to define and manipulate your mind, will, and emotions as it once did. We no longer measure our worth before God based on the sin present in our lives. Instead, we stand confidently before Him knowing we have been made righteous and are learning to live more like Him each and every day.

Help and peace and joy are here.  Your courage will be rewarded.

Painful as this time is, you will both one day see the reason of it,

wonderful life-work you are both to do.

Try to realize that your own prayers are being most wonderfully answered.

Answered in a way that seems painful to you, but that just now is the only way.

Success in the temporal world would not satisfy you.

Great success, in both temporal and spiritual worlds, awaits you.

– forget all that lies behind you. –

Man is so made that he can carry the weight of twenty-four hours, no more.
Directly he weighs down with the years behind, and the days ahead, his back
breaks. I have promised to help you with the burden of today only, the past I
has taken from you and if you, foolish hearts, choose to gather again burden
and bear it, then, indeed, you mock Me to expect Me to share it.

For weal or woe each day is ended.

What remains to be lived,

the coming twenty-four hours, you

must face as you awake.

A man on a march on earth carries only what he needs for that march.
Would you pity him if you saw him bearing too the overwhelming weight
of the worn-out shoes and uniforms

the bounty arrived, just less than a week ago; i

flopped, and grieved the one who came to me.

LET ME ASSURE YOU:  LIFE’S TRIALS ARE JUST

THAT, they are trials – and as i breathe this man

is to assure you all, it is REAL.  Our future is still

forever; that’s a long long time, for us to share in

God’s  grace.  Take that to heart; there are not too

many things that are as believable. go and tell it on

just be aware that the power that’s preached up and

down has much substance! Holy Spirit’s mighty power

to heal and save his wayward child.     Believe in that!

Lord, hear us, we pray.          

Hear and I answer.

Spend much time in prayer.

Prayer is of many kinds, but

whatever kind,

prayer’s the linking up of the

soul and mind and heart to God.

So that if it is only a glance of faith,

a look or word of Love, or confidence,

and no supplication is expressed, it yet

follows that supply and all necessary are

secured.

Because the soul, being linked to God, united

to Him, receives in and through Him all things.

And the soul, when in human form, needs too the

things belonging to its habitation.

LUKE and THE LOST greatest surprise?
have ever received? How did you feel?
Humbled, grateful, so surprised that
there were no words, or arrogantly
feeling you were entitled and it…

Published March 22, 2015

consider what Jesus does…

by preaching the word, not claiming to write it, original like…

God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.

O God, when thou wentest forth before thy people, when thou didst march through the wilderness; Selah:

The earth shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence of God: even Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God, the God of Israel.

Thou, O God, didst send a plentiful rain, whereby thou didst confirm thine inheritance, when it was weary.

10 Thy congregation hath dwelt therein: thou, O God, hast prepared of thy goodness for the poor.

11 The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.

12 Kings of armies did flee apace: and she that tarried at home divided the spoil.

13 Though ye have lien among the pots, yet shall ye be as the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with yellow gold.

14 When the Almighty scattered kings in it, it was white as snow in Salmon.

15 The hill of God is as the hill of Bashan; an high hill as the hill of Bashan.

16 Why leap ye, ye high hills? this is the hill which God desireth to dwell in; yea, the Lord will dwell in it for ever.

17 The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels: the Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place.

18 Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the Lord God might dwell among them.

19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.

20 He that is our God is the God of salvation; and unto God the Lord belong the issues from death.

21 But God shall wound the head of his enemies, and the hairy scalp of such an one as goeth on still in his trespasses.

22 The Lord said, I will bring again from Bashan, I will bring my people again from the depths of the sea:

23 That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of thine enemies, and the tongue of thy dogs in the same.

24 They have seen thy goings, O God; even the goings of my God, my King, in the sanctuary.

25 The singers went before, the players on instruments followed after; among them were the damsels playing with timbrels.

26 Bless ye God in the congregations, even the Lord, from the fountain of Israel.

27 There is little Benjamin with their ruler, the princes of Judah and their council, the princes of Zebulun, and the princes of Naphtali.

28 Thy God hath commanded thy strength: strengthen, O God, that which thou hast wrought for us.

29 Because of thy temple at Jerusalem shall kings bring presents unto thee.

30 Rebuke the company of spearmen, the multitude of the bulls, with the calves of the people, till every one submit himself with pieces of silver: scatter thou the people that delight in war.

31 Princes shall come out of Egypt; Ethiopia shall soon stretch out her hands unto God.

32 Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises unto the Lord; Selah:

33 To him that rideth upon the heavens of heavens, which were of old; lo, he doth send out his voice, and that a mighty voice.

34 Ascribe ye strength unto God: his excellency is over Israel, and his strength is in the clouds.

35 O God, thou art terrible out of thy holy places: the God of Israel is he that giveth strength and power unto his people. Blessed be God.King James Version (KJV)
