1 John 2:2 And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.
As you leave on earth, it’s impossible not to fall to sin but Jesus Christ stands in the gap for us. Jesus know our weaknesses and ensures that that which we cannot stand is avoided. Luke 22:31-32 And the Lord said, “Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.”
Jesus promised that those that God directed to Him, he will not loose them. He intercedes on our behalf. The devil is roaring like a lion, looking for that time when you are weak so he can pounce. 1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.
Ephesians 5:15-16 So be careful how you live. Don't live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.
The power of sin has been nullified through Jesus, the life-giving spirit has freed us from the power of sin. Romans 8:5 Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit.
You can't be filled with the Holy Spirit and do what is contrary to it.
You cannot continue as normal after receiving the grace of salvation. There are things no matter how good Satan has packaged them, move away from them. Romans 6:20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness.
Warm Christians are dangerous. When you go back to your ways, it’s like nullifying all that the Cross has achieved. Revelation 3:15-16 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.
1 John 3:20 For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things. If you do anything you believe is not right, you are sinning. James 4:17 Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.
Romans 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.
No matter how much you can speak to a person about Christ, if the spirit is not involved, you are waisting your time. I used to enjoy criticizing Christian until one day God decided himself to end it. John 8:9 Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
Sin is spiritual therefore requires spiritual intervention. Sometimes you hear people commenting about spiritual things when they are not spiritual themselves and act like they know it all. Time will come when Jesus will take control of their lives, one just hope it’s not too late for some. John 8:12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”
Saul thought he’s got everything under control not knowing that he will hit a forced stop in his life. When all you think you knew becomes a lie. Acts 9:3-4 As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven. Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”
