You can’t sin away the gift of God…

You can’t sin away the gift of God. That’s why it’s called… ‘a gift’.

 

To the degree that we believers engage with Christ… who lives inside… to that degree… we will impact our world for good.

 

When you wake up on the morning of Nov. 9th… and find out that ‘that’ candidate …the one that you can’t stand… has actually been voted into office… then remember that E-V-E-R-Y P-R-O-M-I-S-E that God has ever made to you … is still true.

Your life isn’t getting darker. No. It’s only getting brighter. And brighter. And brighter. [Pro. 4:18] And Hillary… OR Donald… can’t change that!

 

Speak in tongues. Sing in the Spirit. Then speak in tongues some more. Then sing in the Spirit some more. There’s power in that tongue! Speaking in tongues builds up your faith. And faith… overcomes the world!

Jesus qualified us for every blessing that we don’t deserve. Believe it. Receive it. By God’s help… determine to make the most of it!

 

When God gave us his Son… he gave us everything. There’s nothing more to give. Our part is to ‘fan into flame’… the gift of the Holy Spirit that lies within. [2 Tim. 1:6]

 

When you sin… you don’t…. by that sin… jump OUT OF the kingdom of light… INTO the kingdom of darkness… until you confess your sin adequately … and repent of it fully… and then by doing so… jump back OUT OF the kingdom of darkness… and back INTO the kingdom of light. No.

“If we walk in the Light… the blood of Jesus purifies us from all sin.” [1 Jn. 1:7] Who does his blood purify from all sin? People who sin …who are walking in the light.

We are qualified to walk in the ‘kingdom of light’ not by our good behavior… but by the Father. [Col. 1:12-14]

If we sin in the light… then we’re purified in the light… so that we can stay in the light. THAT’S… what the blood of Jesus has bought us!

Our ‘jumping days’ …are over!!

 

Upset? News got you down? Then try thinking about THESE things: Whatever is true… noble… right… pure… lovely… admirable… excellent or praiseworthy. [Phil. 4:8]

“But, Bob! Nothing fits that bill as well as Jesus does!”

E-x-a-c-t-l-y!

 

Full of the news? No peace. Full of Jesus? Peace. Be filled with the Spirit… not the news.

 

God’s promises to you are greater than the United States… the Constitution… the Founding Fathers… the political system… the national economy… or the present state and condition of our society.

The promises of God are your firm foundation… your security… your protection… and your peace. Jesus bought you the right to believe in them for yourself… whatever your shortcomings might be.

In troubled times like these… my advice is this: hold onto the promises of God. They are eternal… and they will never let you down.

 

You’ll overcome… by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony. [Rev. 12:11] Be convinced of Christ’s sacrifice for you… and talk about it wherever you go… and life’s challenges will never overcome you. Even to the death… you… will… overcome!
