Freedom

What does this mean? Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom? Freedom from what? Let's make something very clear. This scripture could easily be twisted into freedom to live and do whatever you want. The truth is without Jesus you are free to live and do whatever you want but in Jesus or correction Jesus within you - you are not free to live and do whatever you want. You are to obey the Words of God. Putting your body, your life and your "freedom" under the subjection and direction of the Lord Jesus. So what does this scripture mean? We have been given freedom from the oppression of the law, the Mosiac law required man to do a lot of things to cleanse themselves from sin. Jesus has set us free from that. He also has set us free from sin. See we are not slaves to our sin, Jesus gives us a way to walk away from sin and live in the freedom of His Grace and  Mercy. This is the true freedom of life! Dear Ones- I pray that you have that freedom that only comes through submission in Jesus! Allow these words to change your heart and life!

Conviction


Conviction? What is that? Some would say it is this feeling,or notion of what is right or wrong or a standard you set for yourself of the things you will or won't do. The problem is that this standard that we set comes from our conscience. This standard can go against the Word of God. Are you unsure of what I mean? Example: The Lord hates sin. Would you not agree on that? Well the Bible is clear that sex before marriage is sin. But many people with in or even out of church feel NO conviction and some would even say it is ok to have sex before marriage or even "live" with the person they are intending to marry. But the definition of sexual immorality is sex between two people who are not married. (Among many other things)God's Word states: "Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality," (Galatians 5:19) This is where our conscience is broken and is not trust worthy. Dear Ones, If you are a bible believing Born Again Christian then the Holy Spirit dwells within you. Allow Him through the Word of God to direct you in your ways,change you from the inside,so your life can be a reflection of the Light of the World- our Lord Jesus.

Obedience

Today's message doesn't come from Scripture but from Dr. Tony Evans who shares with us a profound thought. Often I hear people say I don't ever hear from God, or I don't feel His presence in my life. The truth is for us to "feel" His presence and hear His voice we must first surrender our lives, and will to Him and seek to obey His Word in our lives. All too often people see God as intangible, unreachable, and inactive but the truth is. As Priscilla Shirer states, " Jesus loved you enough to die for you, do you think He doesn't love you enough to talk to you?" Dear Ones, to feel the presence of God in our lives, starts with us. Starts with surrender to God, then we must obey. Jesus' words state. "If you love Me, you will keep My commands."

John 14:15 HCSB

Obedience is an essential part of us hearing the voice of God and feeling his guidance and presence. And we can only know that we are living according to His Will and Way by reading His Word daily, digesting it into our lives and heart, and living it all for His Glory. 

Let us all seek to obey His Word today and love others as Christ has loved us!
