FROM SIN TO GRACE
Bless you brethren in Christ Jesus our Lord and Saviour. Another week has come again to share with you the word of salvation, the word of healing and strenght, may the grace and mercy of the Lord Jesus be pour in abundant measure upon your soul. Amen
Brethren, whatever we have today in our lives,whatever we have achieve and become today, it wasn’t by anyone’s doing, but it is by the grace and mercy of the Lord. Therefore I would bless the Lord at all times for what He has done for me and my household, and his praise and thanksgiving would always be on my lips. The Lord has been good to us all even though we may not see it or refuse to recognized it, but God has been good to us all.Amen
In the book of Ehpesians 2:1-9, Bible said we were dead in our sins and transgression in which we use to live when we follow the way of this world and of the rulers of the kingdom of the air which is Satan and his evil angels. The spirits who is still at work in those who are disobedient to the word of God.
Brethren, we all know that transgression is sin and the wages of sin is death. When we see evil and refuse to condemn it, then sin is within our heart and soul. When we appreciate and praise what is improper and right and descent in the eyes of God, When we call evil good and call good evil, then the evil ones in the dark world controls our mind and spirit. But Christ came and gave himself for me and you in order to deliver us from the power of the wicked spirit that control our thoughts and ways. we receive grace and forgiveness of sin.
And God who is rich in mercy and Love forgave our iniquity and grant us salvation through the blood of Jesus. We were bought and redeem by the blood of the lamb of God. And therefore we no longer belong to ourself, we now belong to Christ who purchase us with his precious blood, we are to live our life to please the man who redeem us from the anger and wrath of God.
We are not to be lazy and weak and grumbling or finding excuses in doing the service of Christ who is God in all. We are to give our wholeself fully to him and do everything to please him in everyway. Our inward being and outward being must be fully giving to the Lord Jesus. For he gave himself fully to us and we are to do the same back to him.
We are to love him with all our heart, soul and mind. Nothing should be left behind without giving to the Lord, i:e our thought, our desire, our body and our strenght, all should be for the glory of Christ Jesus and not for ourself.
Apart from these, we can be very sure that we are heading to the place that is full of pain and destruction of our soul. Remember, our righteousness is not enough to save us, only by giving ourself to the Lord Jesus.
Do not be deceive “the Lord knows those who are his own”. Brother and Sister, serve the Lord with a pure heart and truth and He would not dissappoint you in any way. The Lord knows the heart of all men.
May the Grace and Mercy of the Lord Jesus be with you always.
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Kollins Arthur
