Free and Clear

The end of everything is near. Therefore, practice self-control, and keep your minds clear so that you can pray.

1 Peter 4:7 GW

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you were bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body.

1 Corinthians 6:19‭-‬20 NRSV

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God [that is, His remarkable, overwhelming gift of grace to believers] is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 6:23 AMP

We’re all different, but we’re all the same.

That knowledge is key to being an effective minister of the Gospel.

We all need saving.

We all need to be rescued from the consequences of our sin.

So before you judge your enemy, or your friend, or your family, or your co-worker, or your neighbor, as undeserving of mercy, consider your own spiritual poverty first.

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.

What is spiritual bankruptcy?

It means in ourselves, our own righteousness, we are unable to pay our debt.

The wages of sin is death.

Have we all sinned?

Yes, we have all missed the mark.

We’ve missed the bullseye.

We aren’t perfect.

We fall short of the glory of God.

If you’ve missed the mark even once in your whole life, your imperfection sentences you to death by God’s laws.

We were created to be like God.

We were created to be exactly like Him in regards to love.

Have you walked in perfect love all the days of your life?

No?

Then you’re a sinner.

You need saving.

Or else you will perish and not see the goodness of God.

There’s only one thing that can save us, and it’s already been provided.

The blood of Jesus.

I’ll never get tired of explaining the Gospel.

It’s the Good News.

This world is full of bad news.

It can weigh your soul down if you give attention to it.

All that negativity is toxic to peace of mind.

Why feed on garbage?

Desire the pure word of God like babies desire milk.

Can I encourage you to live a better way everyday?

Spend time with God and His Word first thing every morning.

Before you eat.

Before you drink.

Get the most essential thing to life.

God’s Word.

I pray that God gives you a holy hunger for His Word.

It will remind you of the truth.

The truth will set you free.

Who the Son sets free is free indeed.

You’re a child of God.

Your Father has a message for you today.

And everyday.

I love you.

Be a good son or daughter.

Obey my instructions.

I know you’re better than the way you’ve been living lately.

I forgive you.

Repent.

Turn around.

Quit chasing the things of the world.

Come and sit at My feet.

And I will give you wisdom for living.

The eye is the lamp of the body.

If your eye is clear, your whole body will be filled with light.

You’ve been purchased for a price.

The debt has been paid.

God owns you free and clear.

The devil has no more legal claim on your soul.

Live like free people.

You’re no longer under the power of sin.

Rescue the remaining captives.

Time is short.

Shorter than anyone realizes.

Today is the day of salvation.

Announce the Good News boldly.

This is your charge.

Fulfill the Great Commission.

You only have one life to live.

And one God to serve.

May God give you strength to finish the race.

Finish strong.

Amen.
