When we present our bodies to God as LIVING sacrifices, we are saying “Thank You Father, for sending Jesus, to restore me to You; delivering me from darkness, into Your marvelous Light!!”
Jesus HAS delivered us from sin, sickness, disease, infirmities, and ANYTHING else, that would kill us, steal from us, and destroy us, and gave us His ABUNDANT life; His righteousness!!
Jesus HAS redeemed us from the curse of the Law (sickness, disease, infirmities are from the Law - they are weapons formed against us, to hinder us from doing what God called us to do too), by becoming a curse for us - we are NO longer under the bondages of the curse, but grace and truth!!
Jesus HAS took our sins, sicknesses, diseases, infirmities of ALL kind, and as I said, EVERYTHING that comes to steal, kill, and destroy us, and given us His Righteousness; we who have accepted Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior, are now righteous because of Jesus!!
God has thrown our sins as far as the east is from the west; God has thrown our sins into the sea of forgetfulness, to remember them NO more!!
Since curses were a result of sin, of disobedience to God, once we become born again, by accepting Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior, we are no longer under the curse!!
Therefore, sin, sickness, disease, infirmities, etc. should no longer be manifested in our lives!! The Word tells us that the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God, is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord!! So you see, there is NO life in God, without Jesus!! Jesus is the ONLY Way to the Father!!
Since God sees us as righteous because of Christ, AFTER we are born again, He will NEVER bring up our past sins to us; that’s the devil or our old mindset!!
If you don’t KNOW Jesus as YOUR personal Lord and Savior, why not make that decision now; why not allow Jesus to lighten your load; why not allow Jesus to take ALL those heavy burdens you are carrying; why not allow Jesus to manifest your healing in your body, that He paid for over 2000 years ago, so you could walk in TOTAL healing and health today; WHY NOT?
What is holding you back, from TOTALLY surrendering your life to Jesus, so He can take YOU to the Father? Come to Jesus today; right where you are!! God loves you, and wants you to be restored to Him; God wants you to be in right fellowship with Him, and that can ONLY happen, by you accepting Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior - AGAIN, Jesus is the ONLY Way to the Father!!
Jesus is there with open arms, waiting for YOU; He is knocking on the door of your heart RIGHT now!! Do you hear Him? Will you open the door of your heart, and let Jesus in, so bondages can leave? Will you?
This same invitation from the Father, is extended to the back slider; Father is calling YOU home - yes YOU!! Come home!! Haven’t you been in the wilderness, going around and around in circles long enough? Haven’t you? Father loves you very much, and He wants you back!!
Surrender your heart to Jesus, and allow Jesus’ Blood to wash and cleanse you, making you whole, so Holy Spirit can FILL and empower you to live this life here, until Jesus returns for you!!
ALL backslidders, come home to Father; He is calling you all!! There is no sin too great, that God cannot forgive you for; all you have to do is ask!! Don’t know what to say? That’s okay; Holy Spirit will guide you in what to say!! Just make the choice to either come to Jesus, so He can take you to Father, for the first time, or the humpteenth time; choose life!! Jesus is waiting!!
May God strengthen, comfort, give you peace, wisdom, knowledge, and understanding, as you embark on this journey of discovery with Him; discovering who He is as the Trinity (God the Father, God the Son Jesus, God the Holy Spirit), and discovering who you are in Christ!!
