Rejoice in our redemption

Believers never walk in darkness. Going to Church per se does not make you a Christian. Have you accepted Him in your heart?

The Church is the house of God. We have eternal life through His name.

The Bible doesn't deal with uncertain things. Joy and peace coexist with the certainty that He has obtained for us eternal redemption.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son. Whoever who believes in Him will have eternal life.

Many of us have been or will be challenged in our belief in the Word of Grace. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. Don't turn your back on Him. Jesus is the final sacrifice. My hand cannot give me nor maintain my redemption. The truth is in us because we have Christ in us.

1 John 1:9 - was this written to believers? "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.". The problem is not confessing our sins. The problem is believing that we must confess our sins to receive forgiveness. Once you know that you are forgiven completely, you know that your sins "are forgiven you for His name's sake". One action executed which needs no repetition. Our sins are forgiven - past, present and future.

If you go to Jesus, acknowledging that you are a sinner, God says, "No problem. I am a Saviour.". Know that you are saved. We are sons of God and the light.

If we have no sin, why do we need a Saviour? Either you are forgiven or you are not forgiven.

All true children of God - their sins are forgiven. Know that you are forgiven much. Right believing produces right living. This gives you a sense of gratefulness to God and you can forgive others because you know how much God has forgiven you.

God commanded light to shine out of darkness. Preach Jesus! He is the light, the knowledge and the glory. Who is Christ? Christ is Grace. Grace and truth came by Jesus. The Son of God brought Grace. Jesus sets us free. Those who under Grace - sin will have no dominion over us.

People who are proud give you the most trouble. It is the insecure who are bad tempered or proud. When you are secure in Christ, no one who says anything about you can affect you - their words are nothing.

All our sins are fully punished at Calvary, where a lone figure hung on the Cross. God will never punish us again, if we truly believe in Jesus.

The Bible was written by simple people of the countryside who had the Holy Spirit breathe in them. The same Holy Spirit will guide us.

Rejoice in our redemption.

Have you been blessed?

Will you let Jesus have centreplace in your life? He will hold all things together forever. On the Cross, God's judgment fell on the body of Jesus. There is no more judgment left if we believe in Jesus.
