Love God yes, but do you still following your own desires?

Hits: 30

There is one major root problem for today’s Christians. That’s why I like to address “We who love God but at the same time choose to follow our own desires.”

Jesus said; “- Go away you workers of iniquity!”
(You say you know me – but I say I don’t know you. There is nothing of me in you) Luke 13:27
What does Jesus mean? And what should we not do?

What we should do is to get away from our crocked ways and behavior. Instead we should get closer to God. Because when we draw ourselves closer to Him – He will get closer to us. And when we have spent time with the Lord, when we continually are filled with His Holy Spirit, we don’t have to resist our fleshly desires in the same way we otherwise would.

The power of Forgiveness

Hits: 33

There is power in forgiveness. If for example when you are out evangelizing, ask the person if they are angry or bitter with anyone.
It can be within the family, in school or work place, in past relations. Ask if he or she can forgive. If the person says “yes I can forgive”, then have the person speak it out, by repeating your prayer to Jesus, for example; “- Jesus I forgive the person who have hurt me. Jesus please also forgive me for my wrongdoings.”

What’s in our hearts should come out in a confession, either it’s a confession of sin, wrongdoing, binding or losing e t c, anything you like to declare or proclaim.
Sometimes the person have difficulties in forgetting the past, then remind him that it’s better to let go, and instead to be set free. Remember it’s a difference between forgetting and forgiving.
Some people may say they have forgiven, but as soon as they speak it out, they have difficulties and may suddenly cry. So we are not telling them to forget, but to forgive, so they can let go (and move on and thereby not think of it that much so their hurt and their feelings and emotions can get healed).

Sometimes it can be difficult to forgive someone and speak it out. I usually suggest then, what if we ask Jesus Himself to help us? Like this; “- Jesus help me forgive this person, because I can’t do it on my own.”
You see, when someone sins, he is in debt (and the debt of sin is death). So when we forgive a person who have done anything wrong to us, and hurt us, we set them free from their debts! Continue reading “The power of Forgiveness”
