My dear brothers and sisters, in order to break free from the clutches of sin, we must first embrace repentance. Repentance is the key that unlocks the door to forgiveness and absolution from our transgressions by the grace of the Lord. As Christians, it is essential that we reach a place of true repentance that purifies our consciousness and begins to allow Jesus to change us through His Holy Spirit.
Our eternal salvation hinges on this supernatural transformation that many reject but leads us to a life of purity and holiness through Christ. He is the one who cleanses our bodies from all that is dirty and defiled, making way for His Holy Spirit to awaken and arise in a clean place – the new Spiritual Temple.
As Paul writes in Corinthians 7:10, “Godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation.” This verse confirms that humility to admit we hurt God produces sorrowful remorse that effectively attracts God’s attention to accept it and His faithful promises to forgive and wipe clean.
It’s impossible to know God without repentance which leaves a good majority of the world succumbing to the spiritual crumbs of religion, placing faith in lesser things than Christ’s Holy Gospel and truth.
Yet, when we do we beginning to understand God’s nature forming personal relationships like a Father and child. Jesus himself said that through the Holy Spirit He would convict of us our sin, I mean, it’s written in John 16:8.
To often people are misled by religious teachings and false doctrine and come into agreement with unclean spirits, some call a “religious spirit” and block themselves from the blessing of the fruit and gifts of the Holy Spirit, and bcomw offended when we get help them build a genuine relationship with God who loves them.
Ephesians 4:26-27 says,
Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: 27 Neither give place to the devil.
Offense to the truth welcomes the devil to cause chaos in our lives, minds, bodies, and families, therefore God gives us the truth in scripture. We must never be ashamed of the Gospel to idolize man’s word which is a form of witchcraft. Indeed the devil is a liar, a cheat, and a hoax. At all costs, we have to choose not to sin against God.
Please realize that God’s sentiment is the only one that matters. Read Psalm 51:4 states, it says, “Against You, You only, have I sinned and done this evil in your sight.” It is painful in the Lord’s eyes when we are careless with our own sins and do not take into account His feelings. That said it doesn’t mean we never sin; it means we don’t choose to live a sinful life but are changed by the Holy To hate sin and be repulsed by it out of shame before God.
As a follower of Christ it’s critical to prioritize God’s opinion over that of others, especially when it comes to our own sin and actions. That said, by seeking repentance and building a relationship with our Father, we can experience forgiveness, healing, and restoration.
And eventually. Redemption!!
Through baptism into the Holy Spirit, and not water we begin to process refinement, and our characters change, we hate sin, and we are made new in Christ and no longer defined by our past mistakes. When people bring up your past; it’s q beautiful opportunity to glorify what God did in our lives, even when sometimes you want to pole them in the eyes like the three stooges for intentionally trying to invalidate God’s Grace.
Don’t do it, be kind and straightforward but not mean, loud and abrasive, this is your opportunity to show people what Jesus is made of in you. Be wise, don’t chastise!
Today, what the world needs most is love and repentance, forgiveness and honesty, kindness and compassion, strength, authenticity, and boldness forth truth, not only in the places we worship but worldwide and in the highest seats. It’s the love of Jesus Christ and true holiness found in Christ.
In 2 Chronicles 7:14, GOD says, “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
Moreover, healthy communication leads to a better understanding of one another. Take a look!
Therefore, each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body” -Ephesians 4:25,
Also, Paul said in Romans 15:6. Let us strive to communicate in love and truth, “so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Let today be your day. I love you so much!
God Bless You,
