Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
Do you feel truly heartbroken when you recognize that you’ve sinned against God and your fellowman? Do you say to yourself – I will never do that again and then you turn around twice and find yourself chained to the sin that you are trying to escape from? Has that sin become the “thorn” in your side that has brought you to despair because of your weakness and therefore acknowledges your need for a SAVIOR?
If this describes your life’s journey and the path that you find yourself on, at some point in time, you need to “let go and let God”! There’s only one escape from the prison of the sinner and that’s to give yourself over entirely to faith and trust in Jesus – Yeshua (Hebrew translation). Once you’ve done this, repentence and the “heartbroken” grief you feel will set you free from the prison of sin. Jesus came and died for the sinner…that’s you and me! For all have sinned! Read what the Apostle Paul tells us…
Romans 3:21-2421 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
The Apostle Paul also tells us in Romans 5:6-7 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
John 3:36 The one who believes in the Son has eternal life, but the one who refuses to believe in the Son will not see life; instead, the wrath of God remains on him.
Thankfully, there’s still some time…Heavenly Father is still waiting for us to accept His gift of His SON and ultimately the gift of “eternal life”! I don’t know how He could have made it any easier for us or explained it clearer than what He has done through Scripture and through the perfect life that Jesus lived. When we accept this gift, we become disciples (followers of Christ) our role is to show others through our faith, obedience and the sharing of the Gospel of Salvation, the joy we feel at the momentous return of Jesus and HIS Kingdom.
John 15:12-14 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. 13Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
Jesus the Messiah – Yeshua Ha Mashiach laid down HIS Life for us and if you become a disciple of Jesus and when you look at yourself in the mirror, you should be seeing the reflection of HIS righteousness as we have none of our own! So NOW is the time to ask for the Father in Heaven’s forgiveness and allow His Spirit to work in you the miracle of a true heart broken desire to turn your life around.
Matthew 13:15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
Matthew 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. YES! Emmanuel means GOD with Us! The Son of God came once as a baby that grew into a man who showed us how God wants us to live and taught us that LOVE is the key to HIS SALVATION. He suffered the consequences of our sins…a most hideous death on the cross. The next time He comes, He’ll be coming as the KING of KINGS! https://jesusamazinggrace.com/2020/05/16/our-king-and-his-kingdom/
WOW! Don’t wait until tomorrow to ask Jesus into your life…tomorrow may never come! Jesus is returning soon! Are you ready?
Warning against Deliberate Sin!
Hebrew 10:26-30 For if we deliberately sin after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a terrifying expectation of judgment and the fury of a fire about to consume the adversaries. 28 If anyone disregards Moses’ law, he dies without mercy, based on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 How much worse punishment do you think one will deserve who has trampled on the Son of God, regarded as profane the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and insulted the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know the One who has said, Vengeance belongs to Me, I will repay, and again, The Lord will judge His people.
