Holy Spirit Will Help Anyone Overcome His Limitation

Holy Spirit Will Help Anyone Overcome His Limitation

A person who claims to love God must express it by loving his Son Jesus Christ. The person must also love his or her neighbors. Here are God’s words,

“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’”(Luke 10:27 NIV).

“Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments” (1 John 5:1-2 NKJV).

The task to love God and our fellow human beings may sound easy but it can be sometimes intensive. It can be tough to truly love the hostile people. Also, it can be challenging to love God wholeheartedly during a difficult situation. However, despite the challenges, believers still have the privilege of depending on empowerment of the Holy Spirit to fully meet the standard of God – “Love God and love your neighbors.”

To overcome the challenge of struggling to fully love God and truly love our neighbors, we must rely on the power of the Holy Spirit.

Christian: Have Confidence In Holy Spirit!

Holy Spirit can help us overcome our limitations and adequately meet the standard of God. To achieve this, we must express our dependence on God. That is, we must pray and express our frustrations and fears to God. We must tell him how we feel, and how powerless we are in a situation. More importantly, we must ask God to send his Holy Spirit to possess us, empower us, and guide us to behave appropriately according to his commandments.

A believer who operates in the realm of the Holy Spirit through prayers and Bible study will receive God’s empowerment to prosper. The person will regain the strength to behave in a manner that glorifies God.

No doubt that Satan will tempt a Christian to act in the flesh and be less loving in a hostile environment, but the fellow can depend on the power of the Holy Spirit to adequately meet the standard of God.

Holy Spirit gives us the power to fully love God and our neighbors. The Bible states, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26).

Every Christian needs the supernatural power of God (Holy Spirit) to overcome his or her limitations. The divine Spirit of God will energize us to live above sin if we can allow him to lead us! He (Holy Spirit) will empower us to love God as well as loving our fellow human beings – Even under a poisoned atmosphere! The more we rely on the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, the more our strength will increase to fully conform to the standard of God.

Submit yourself to God. Read his word (The Bible); pray, and rely on the power of the Holy Spirit to fully conform to his standard.

Implication of the Blood of Jesus Christ

Implication of the Blood of Jesus Christ

Crucify him; crucify him, shouted the Pharisees who wanted Jesus dead by all means. The enemies got their wish, but it became my blessing!

Jesus Christ shed his blood on the Cross of Calvary for humanity. He suffered and languished in pain from his persecutors who beat him mercilessly and squeezed the crown of thorns on his head. An already weaken Son of God was forced to carry his own cross as mob chanted “crucify him” to Roman soldiers.

The main goal of the enemies was to kill Jesus Christ. They hope that their effort will stop him from being proclaimed as the Messiah – the Savior of the world.

“Crucify him, crucify him” the mob was shouting. They wanted Jesus dead by all means. The authority (in collaboration with the Pharisees) dragged Jesus to Golgotha where they nailed his arms and feet on the cross. Hammers pounded the nails as they were driven into his arms and feet; he cried in pain but no one was ready to help. The enemies laughed and mocked him as he groaned in pain!

crucifixion

Jesus’ enemies were having a field day as they hung the body of Jesus on the cross and hammered the crown of thorns to his head. They even took their time to post on Jesus’ cross to showcase the allegation they brought against him. The signage was “Hinri” meaning The self-proclaimed “King of Jews.”

Blood run all over Jesus’ body as he was groaning in excruciating pain.

Not just the enemies mocked Jesus Christ, the onlookers and passersby did the same. Even one of the two thieves nailed to the cross took a cheap shot at Jesus stating, “If you are the Son of God, save yourself, and save us also.” (Luke 23:37).

No one sympathized with Jesus Christ, except a few mothers and some men of integrity. Perhaps those few ones murmured, “This is an act of injustice; this man doesn’t deserve this kind of treatment!” However, what influence have the sympathizers gotten? They were powerless by all standards!

suffering

Jesus Shed His Blood to Save Mankind!

Jesus Christ languished in excruciating pain on the cross. Blood flowed from wounds sustained from beatings and crown of thorns hammered to his head. Meanwhile a soldier doubled his punishment as he gave him vinegar to drink when he lamented for water. Perhaps the same soldier tossed spear into his side as water and blood gushed out from his side!

However, the experience of Christ from his enemies is a prophecy in fulfillment. Long before he was born, Isaiah had prophesied about him,

“Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed” (Isaiah 53:4-5 KJV).

O that the blood of Jesus Christ may never be in vain over my life!

The Importance of The Blood of Jesus Christ

What has the blood of Jesus Christ gotten to do for anyone who believes?

The blood washes sins away! He cleanses people’s lives from their past mistakes and make them fit for God’s kingdom. Believers receive God’s forgiveness via the blood of Jesus Christ! That is, someone who confesses his sins and prays in the name of Jesus will receive God’s forgiveness.

The blood of Jesus Christ heal all kinds of diseases and sickness. The power of God transpires from the blood of Jesus Christ to perform miracles in the lives of people who believe! That is, anyone who anchors his faith in the resurrection power of Jesus Christ and also trust in his blood will experience God’s supernatural power of healing and deliverance.

The blood of Jesus Christ gives Christians upper hands over the power of darkness! Since no activity of men could prevent Jesus Christ from resurrection, whoever anchors his faith in the same Jesus will have similar experience. No power of man or of Satan will be able to prevail over him!

Here comes the sweetest part:

People who share in the privilege of Jesus’ blood and resurrection power are the candidates of heaven. Jesus Christ will advocate for them on the last day of judgement! They will receive pardon for their sins since Christ himself has already paid for the penalty on the cross! The followers of Jesus Christ will confidently match into God’s paradise where they will rejoice in the presence of God forever!

Having mentioned the great benefits of the blood of Jesus Christ, a person who wants to live an overcomer’s life on earth and also qualify for heaven ought to consider the necessity of becoming a Christian. An inquisitive mind will check out the benefits. Perhaps he may have his own advantage to ditch out! More importantly, someone who is concerned about life after death ought to attempt to declare Jesus Christ as his Lord and Personal Savior!

IMPLICATION OF KEEPING BAD ASSOCIATION

IMPLICATION OF KEEPING BAD ASSOCIATION

King Rehoboam succeeded his father Solomon as a king of Israel, but he quickly followed wrong counsels and lost credibility with his citizens.

Therefore, he lost more than 70% of his kingdom to someone who had no royal blood.

The scripture reported,

“…And Jeroboam and all Israel came and spoke to Rehoboam, saying, ‘Your father made our yoke heavy; now therefore, lighten the burdensome service of your father and his heavy yoke which he put on us, and we will serve you.’” (2 Chronicles 10:3-4). “So Jeroboam and all the people came to Rehoboam on the third day, as the king had directed, saying, ‘Come back to me the third day.’

Then the king answered them roughly. King Rehoboam rejected the advice of the elders, and he spoke to them according to the advice of the young men, saying, ‘My father made your yoke heavy, but I will add to it; my father chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scourges!’”(12-14).

“Now when all Israel saw that the king did not listen to them, the people answered the king, saying: ‘What share have we in David? We have no inheritance in the son of Jesse. Every man to your tents, O Israel! Now see to your own house, O David!’ So all Israel departed to their tents” (2 Chronicles 10:16)

Lesson on Association

Wrong association corrupts good people; children of God must avoid relationship that may affect their standing with God.

Ungodly people may care less about meeting God’s expectations; they may also care less about any eternal consequence that is attached with a sinful act.

Ungodly people may pursue human feelings and selfish desires. Meanwhile, we (God’s children) are obligated to put God first in whatever we do.

We are trained to prioritize obedience to God above any human desire! Since we do not share common values with unbelievers, we cannot afford to follow their footsteps.

Instead, we must remain steadfast with bible principles, so that God can be glorified in our lives.

Pray for Grace to Walk with Godly People

Dear God, please help me not to keep ungodly relationship, but help me to maintain relationship with godly people.

Enable me to appreciate Christian values and practice them. Empower me through your Holy Spirit to keep relationships that respect your commandments.

Do not let me follow bad examples, but help me to be faithful to you, so that I can be fit to receive your blessings always.

For in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen

GOD’S ADMONITION ON REPENTANCE

GOD’S ADMONITION ON REPENTANCE

God asked Israelites (his people) to repent from their sins to qualify for his blessings.

God emphasized that holiness is important to him, and it will automatically attract his blessing.

(People who repent from their sins and serve God in holiness will enjoy his benefits).

God said,

“Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; Put away the evil of your doings from before my eyes. Cease to do evil, Learn to do good; Seek justice, Rebuke the oppressor; Defend the fatherless, Plead for the widow. “Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; But if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword”; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken” (Isaiah 1:16-20).

Important Lesson on Repentance of Sin

Repentance matters to God. It opens the door of opportunity for Christians to get blessed.

Repentance also saves people from receiving God’s punishments.

Everyone must understand that God is more interested in repentance of sins than to see sinners suffer consequences of their actions in hell.

In order words, Jehovah is interested to bless his children than to punish them.

Repentance will open God’s doors of blessing that include salvation, protection, and provision.

An exercise of repentance will save a person from incurring the penalty of sin – which is eternal damnation of hellfire.

life

Repentance Must Have Clear Definition

Fact No. 1

A person who chooses to take the proper step of repentance must do so with a contrite mind.

He (or she) mustn’t do so to only satisfy conscience, or someone else.

Repentance must be clearly exercised to meet God’s standard of grace and blessing.

*Do not exercise repentance to appease yourself or anyone else.
*Exercise repentance to appease God!

No one should attempt repentance without a personal conviction of wrongdoing.

A repentant sinner must have evaluated his past action and conclude they displeased God.

Fact No. 2

A person who engages in repentance must avoid using a general statement.

He (or she) must express his mistakes and genuinely ask God’s forgiveness.

A repentant sinner must mention to God what he is being repented of.

It is affirmative and convincing for a person to spell his mistakes to God, and genuinely ask him to forgive them.

Fact No. 3

It is important that anyone who intends to exercise repentance must follow the proper protocol set by God.

A person asking for forgiveness of his sins must do so by mentioning the name of Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ sacrificed his life in exchange for the sins of humanity.

He shed his blood to appease God for our sins.

Hence, no one will be able to receive God’s forgiveness without mentioning the name of Jesus Christ.

No one receives the repentance of sin without mentioning the name of Jesus Christ.

It is written:

“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him, and with his stripes, we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5 KJV).

Jesus Christ offers a license for sin cleansing through his blood; the forgiveness of sin can only be obtained through the power of his resurrection

A person who exercises repentance through Jesus Christ will be forgiven and be saved.

“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so, must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 4:14-16 KJV).

The Blood of Jesus Christ Washes Sins Away

Jesus Christ is the propitiation for sins.

Jesus Christ suffered and died in the hands of his persecutors.

He was hanged on the tree and wore the crown of tore.

Jesus shed his blood till death on the cross and was buried in the grave.

Christ resurrected on the third day and offered his believers salvation and eternal life.

Through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we shall receive forgiveness of sins, and thereby qualify for the kingdom of God.
caution

Adverse Effect for Those Who Intend To Invade Repentance

Repentance is not a choice but a must for everyone.

Since no one can claim absolute holiness, it is important that we all confess our sins and repent from them.

A person who refuses to repent from his (or her) sins risks the punishment of eternal damnation in hellfire.

God who is notable for being merciful will have no other option than to exercise harsh punishment of hell on the unrepentant sinners.
honor

Repentance Leads to Salvation

All people – without exception – must repent from his or her sins to be saved.

Have you confessed your sins to the Lord?

Have you repented from your sins and promised God to turn a new leaf?

Have you prayed to have the grace needed to live holy and acceptable life before God?

Do not hesitate to take a step of repentance.

Use this opportunity to break free from the bondage of sins, and qualify for God’s eternal benefits on earth and in heaven.
prayer of repentance

Prayer of Repentance and Ability to Live Holy Life

Dear God, I understand that I am not a perfect person; I am a sinner, and I come humbly before you today to ask for the forgiveness of my sins.

I confess all my past sins. I am sorry for them all, and I ask for your forgiveness.

Please forgive my sins.

Cleanse me from all my unrighteousness and qualify me for your eternal blessings!

I confess your Son Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior.

I profess my faith in him, and I obtain my holiness through him.

Please empower me through your Holy Spirit to keep living a pure and acceptable life before you, so that I can inherit your eternal kingdom. For in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.
