Grace or License


What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Romans 6:15 KJV

There is so much misinformation concerning the Gospel being perpetrated by the modernist church. Scripture is being twisted and reinterpreted to allow for perverse and popular life-styles.

Though Christ carried our sin to the cross and cleansed us with His blood, we still have an obligation to live holy.

Our righteousness is a gift from God. That is His side of the New Testament covenant. Our holiness is our gift to God. It is our side of the covenant. We are to have become servants of righteousness.

For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.  Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?  But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.  Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. Romans 6:14‭, ‬16‭-‬18 KJV


Dig A Well


Isaac dug again the wells of water, which they had dug in the days of Abraham his father, for the Philistines had stopped them up after the death of Abraham. He called their names after the names his father had called them. Genesis 26:18 MEV

When your enemies fill and ruin your well, simply dig another one.

God has promised to lead you to refreshing places and to satisfy you.

Jesus is the Wellspring of living water. Come and drink.


Prosperity


And the Lord restored the fortunes of Job when he prayed for his friends, and also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before. Job 42:10 MEV

The key to true prosperity is praying for and forgiving those who who have wronged you. This the walk of love that God calls us to in Christ.

Job prayed for his “friends” in obedience to God and received double what the devil had stolen. 

Yes, “friends”. Only “friends” can get close enough to hurt you.

“But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,  bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. Luke 6:27‭-‬28 MEV

There is power in forgiveness. It positions you for covenant blessing.

For if you forgive men for their sins, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. Matthew 6:14 MEV
Be quick to forgive and then pray for those who hurt you and be restored.


Blood Power


Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the Great Shepherd of the sheep, Hebrews 13:20 MEV

There is power in the blood of Jesus. Just as it raised Jesus from the grave, so it will raise you up dear Believer.
The Blood cleanses from sin.

The Blood speaks from the Mercy Seat of Heaven.

The Blood let’s us boldly approach the throne of Grace.

The Blood delivers and protects.

The Blood of Jesus covers.

You get the idea. We need the precious blood of Christ Jesus, the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world, applied to every area of our lives.


Worth 


And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come from the giants, and in our eyes we were like grasshoppers, and so we were in their eyes.” Numbers 13:33 MEV

You will never be able to rise above how you see yourself. If you see yourself as inadequate, weak, poor, or a loser, that will be the life you live. Even others will see you as you see yourself. Then they will treat you accordingly.

The only way to change your future is to begin to let God show you who you really are in Christ.

He says that you are the righteousness of God in Christ, a royal priest, a member of His holy nation. Search through the Bible and see if this not true. 

God cannot lie. What He ssys about you is the truth. Don’t you think it’s time to agree with Him?

He says that you can do all things through Christ, that you are more tjan a conqueror and an overcomer. He even calls you His beloved child and promises you an equal inheritance with Christ Jesus.

Take another look at yourself and learn to see yourself as God see’s you.

Have a great today!


Be Holy


Righteousness keeps him who is upright in the way, but wickedness overthrows the sinner. Proverbs 13:6 MEV

Our verse today tells us that righteousness will keep the upright (the holy living). 

Many are the protections of God that surround the right living righteous. God said, “Be holy for I Am  holy,” and that is what He expects from our part of the cocenant we have in Christ Jesus.

God made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:21 MEV

God has given us righteousness (right standing with Him) as a gift.

For if by one man’s trespass death reigned through him, then how much more will those who receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:17 MEV

Our part of the covenant is to believe and receive by faith. Faith without corresponding action is lifeless so we are to present ourselves as living sacrifices to God and live holy lives that He might be glorified in us.

I urge you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, and acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service of worship. Do not be 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 12:1‭-‬2 MEV


Company


First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world. Romans 1:8 KJV

Surround yourself with like minded people. Reach out to those who oppose you.
You and I need each other. We are strengthened and protected by our company. A company, made up of platoons and squads, are arrayed for battle against a common foe. So the Church is made up of companies called the local church. We do not fight nor stand alone.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12 KJV

When the going gets tough we need to gather with our own company like Peter and John did:

And being let go, they went to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said unto them. Acts 4:23 KJV

Find your company.
