Verse(s) of the day: 1 John 4:1-6:
1Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 2Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 3And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. 4Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 5They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. 6We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
How are you doing? I hope you are doing well in Christ, In regards to my previous blog, remember to keep praying for me and that I continue to grow in Christ and keep praying for those people out there that claim to be Christians but are not. Once again, thanks a lot and God bless.
I have wanted to write on this topic for a while now, I have found out how really faithful God’s mercy and grace is over we humans. 1 John 1:8-10 8If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.4
As Christians, we do sin sometimes, but the Holy Spirit in us makes us realise that we are sinning, which makes us repent. But, this doesn’t create room for sinning on a regular basis and claiming to repent. Some people including my old self, plan singing first and plan out repentance as well. That is not Christian life, that is not Christ working in us, that is a false spirit.
Hebrews 10:26-27: 26For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, 27But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
But when we Christians sin, the devil sometimes you feel like you are empty now, you failed God, and God doesn’t want anything to do with you now. But truth be told, things are not like that. Christians are not perfect, but this does not create room for us to sin. If anyone says I do not sin, that person is a liar.
1 John 1:8-10: 8If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
For we Christians, when we sin, it is normal to feel horrible, because we have gone against God’s will for our lives.
2 Peter 3:9: 9The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Proverbs 28:13: 13He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.
Isaiah 43:25: 25I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.
1 John 2:1: 1My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sins, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
Hey humans, the world’s burden is heavy, but Christ’s is light.
28Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
