The biggest lie ever told:
“Oh, you are forgiven and saved because you believe in Jesus, but you’ll always sin.”
Let’s be clear about what sin is. Sin is a thought or deed we KNOW is wrong and we do anyway. Sin is repetitious, like chronic fatigue syndrome. We say sorry but use our “fallen state” as an excuse to keep doing it. USING Christ’s forgiveness as a tool to keep doing it.
Mistakes, we will make. But sin we do having been unwilling to learn from a mistake.
We have been given Christ’s forgiveness to give to others. We have been given the Spirit of the Living God to teach us how to learn from mistakes, and sin no longer has power from that point. Sin is habitual, mistakes are part of life.
Repented sin, cleans conscious’s, having confessed and turns away from and does the opposite of the original deed.
A liar, tells the truth, both outwardly and inwardly – repentance.
A thief, works for all they get, and gives from then on – repentance.
A fornicator, stops trying to get for themselves from others and serves/sacrifices for others – repentance.
An adulterer, stops taking selfishness to bed and starts being faithful especially to those who are faithless to them – repentance.
A repentance that cost you nothing, is not repentance.
A love that gives nothing, is nothing.
It takes God to correct the “flow” of right action. Saying sorry takes nothing but wounded pride.
Don’t be a “sorry sinner”.
Let Christ’s power flow through your weaknesses and become a sanctified Life learner.
There IS Power in His Blood, its the power of protection, not surrender to sin.
Don’t believe the lie. Christ’s forgiveness sets us free. Sets us free to make mistakes but be unshackled from their repetition. Sin. Sets us free from condemnation because it unshackles us from a repetitiously guilty conscience. Its the power of God come down from heaven to make us stand before Him with the costly blood of His Son to present us spotless. It is true power. Power of true freedom. Not of having rights, and lives and hurts. Instead having a humble spirit, with only His Life as our Life-force and the power to turn hurt into love. Hurt done to us – into love. Now that’s power! It comes from its Originator, the first One to take hurt and turn it into love, forgiveness, grace, mercy, compassion. True Action. Righteous deeds.
Mistake makers ask for feedback and reproof, and receive Life-giving rewards of freedom. Sinners are those in bondage to the lie above. Worse, because they take the Name of God with it and render it powerless. This blasphemes the Holy Spirit.
Yeshua (Jesus) had a message. Open up your Words and read anew.
“Turn from your sin and return to God.”
Go ahead, open up to Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John; read it for yourself. It wasn’t, “say your sorry, and believe that I will forgive you as you stay as you are because you’ll always be a sinner.” What a human, pitiful rendition of His mission! There’s no such power of God unto Salvation in the flow of that blood. His blood flows with the Power of His Spirit to keep us learning as we walk with Him. Like children learn how to walk. Watch them. They fall, assess, learn, get up. Fall, assess, learn – walk. Talked to, corrected, coached and encouraged along the way. This is the Spirit of our Mighty Living God! The One who keeps us from sin! Knows we must learn. But teaches the difference between sorry sinners and forgiven mistake makers.
May we find our peace in such truth! May we LIVE this power unto Salvation everyday! What a Light He shall be in such vessels of turning!
