True freedom comes by the Holy Spirit


True and lasting freedom comes not from man but from the Holy Spirit. As you celebrate your independence from all your past problems and oppression remember that freedom is not a cheap thing. And Salvation in Christ Jesus is not limited by the laws of a nation but superceded it by virtue of it being eternal. Be independent and free to do what is right and just. That’s the real reason why anyone should have freedom at all.

If you see a Christian brother or sister sinning then pray about their repentance

If you see a Christian brother or sister sinning in a way that does not lead to death, you should pray, and God will give that person life. But there is a sin that leads to death, and I am not saying you should pray for those who commit it. (1 John 5:16)

If you notice that a Christian brother or sister is in sin then pray for their repentance. Perhaps they indeed repent and come again to live for the Lord God. However not every time this is recommended because there are sins which lead to death. For instance, if you hear of a Christian committing suicide and dying, your prayers for his or her repentance won’t work since that person is sinned unto death. Do not despair if you hear of such sins such as suicide, selling soul’s to the Devil or even receiving the mark of the Beast. Rather give thanks to the Lord God that you are saved in Jesus Christ and that there are others in Christ who are still resisting sin!

Believe that God can work out good things for you

O believer in Christ do not fear the bad things that have happened to you nor what has been spoken. Be in the Lord God at all times and see his deliverance as you call on his name. Your right is to call upon the Lord, so use that. Do not fear the past but be willing to overcome it in the name of Jesus for the glory of God that all that hear of you come to know the salvation of the Lord.

 

Verses for reflection:

  • And David said to Abishai and to all his servants, “Behold, my own son seeks my life; how much more now may this Benjaminite! Leave him alone, and let him curse, for the Lord has told him to. It may be that the Lord will look on the wrong done to me, and that the Lord will repay me with good for his cursing today.” (2 Samuel 16: 11-12)
  • And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)

The Serenity Prayer

Drink It In

Drink it in
Take the cup of Jesus Christ
Drink it in
Be ye filled with His pure life
Drink His blood
And take His life into your own
Jesus Christ
The Blessed Lamb
The Holy One
The Son of God

His life is given once for all
His grace to us is free
Given as a ransom paid
The price for you and me
Drink it in
Drink in His love’s refreshing power
Drink it in
And find your strength for this dark hour
Fill your cup
And taste the sorrow of our Lord
Fill it up
And know His joy forevermore

Oh should you turn this cup away
His grace in hatred spurn
There is no more forgiveness
And your soul will ever burn

Drink it in
Take the cup of Jesus Christ
Drink it in
Be ye filled with His pure life
Drink it in
May I urge you just once more
Drink it in
Drink it in
And find His cleansing for your soul 

​Grace Active Prayer

O God, may Your Spirit speak in me that I may speak to You. O Lord Jesus, great high priest, You have opened a new and living way by which a fallen creature can approach You with acceptance.
Help me to contemplate the dignity of Your Person, the perfectness of Your sacrifice, the effectiveness of Your intercession.
O what blessedness accompanies devotion, when under all the trials that weary me, the cares that corrode me, the fears that disturb me, the infirmities that oppress me, I can come to You in my need and feel peace beyond understanding!
The grace that restores is necessary to preserve, lead, guard, supply, help me.  And here Your saints encourage my hope; they were once poor and are now rich, bound and are now free, tried and now are victorious.
Every new duty calls for more grace than I now possess, but not more than is found in You, the divine treasury in whom all fullness dwells.  To You I repair for grace upon grace, until every void made by sin be replenished and I am filled with all Your fullness.
May my desires be enlarged and my hopes emboldened, that I may honour You by my entire dependency and the greatness of my expectation.
Be with me, and prepare me for all the smiles of prosperity, the frowns of adversity, the losses of substance, the death of friends, the days of darkness, the changes of life, and the last great change of all. May I find Your grace sufficient for all my needs. Amen
