What Sin Does..

We are no longer slaves to sin. For when we died with Christ we were set free from the power of sin. And since we died with Christ, we know we will also live with him. We are sure of this because Christ was raised from the dead, and he will never die again. Death no longer has any power over him. When he died, he died once to break the power of sin.
– Romans 6:6-10

The strength of sin is in what it does to you after a sinful act. Sin is intended to destroy you by threatening to separate you from God the father. 


I have been and I know many people who are ashamed to turn to God after they have done something wrong. 

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8)

The bible says, it is by grace we have been saved and not because of who we are and what we have done. So if what we have done did not save us, what we do now cannot separate us. Do not believe the lie that we need to live clean first and then only we can approach God. The truth is you can live free from sin only by the grace of God and by being in constant communion with Him. 

Like most people who teach of grace necessarily repeat, “Grace is no license to sin”, but grace is required to live a life that is free from the power of sin. 

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)

Do not allow anything to separate you from God. Run to God when you fall and be quick to repent. Nothing you do can separate you from the love of God. Embrace the grace of God to break the power of sin. 

“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16)

Share your thoughts : Have you been fighting sin on your own strength? What do you do to break sinful habits? 

Blessings, 

Joel.

God’s will in His time

Image

 

Most of us at some point have prayed for God’s will to be done in our life. We carry on with life and sometimes wonder what does God’s will look like or if such a thing even exist? 

Often understanding God’s timing is harder than knowing His will. The instant world we live in has reduced our capacity to exercise patience and perseverance. Instant coffee, Instant Messaging and now we look for instant answers. In this pursuit, we fail to realise that God’s will is always accompanied by His timing. 

While God longs to release blessings on you, He will not give you the blessing that can harm you. Looking back I know many of the unanswered prayers in my life was only because I wasn’t ready for the answer. I would’ve failed to live faithfully in that blessing at that time.

2013! A year of overflow!

Let 2013 be a year of overflow! Overflow of joy, peace, grace, love, mercy, favor, blessings, prosperity. May you experience an overflow of heaven over you and it being released to those around you.

Happy blessed new year everyone!

Successful everyday!

Your involvement in the success of others is as important as your own.

Are you busy chasing your dreams and don’t see any significant results?

Let’s re-look at this journey.

A doctor is successful when he/she succeeds in saving lives. A pilot is successful when he successfully takes his passengers to the destination. Scientists are successful when they invent or make any contribution that is significant to the world we live in.

What’s the point? Your success is directly proportional to what you do to help someone or something succeed/move ahead.

In the same way, your success in life and your calling/purpose depends on what you’ve done to the people around you, the world around you.

Look for people you can bless everyday. Help fulfil someone else’s dreams today. In doing them, you will see how meaningful and purposeful your life is. And your journey becomes one that is filled with love and grace.

Share if you are blessed.
