Before my Christ I was a prisoner to transgression, I became a slave to rebellion the moment I was born. My heart was full of the stench of sin, The foul odor of iniquity overwhelmed my soul. I despised who I was and wanted out, I wished to flee the darkness I was in. Then … Continue reading Set Free from Sin
The follower of Jesus Christ is called to be different. When the world says that we ought to be upset when things do not go our way, the believer must exercise peace in the face of difficulty. As the world tells us that we want to be angry and rage on when someone or something … Continue reading Be Something Different
How do we show that we are followers of Jesus Christ? In John 13, Jesus provides for the model in which we can show that we are His and He is in us. Yet to follow His lead may cause us to feel uncomfortable. Nevertheless, it is important that we do. Let us find out how we live for God.
Lord, I come to you with a heavy heart, My soul is grieved as I enter your presence. For I have stumbled on Your my King, On my life journey I have fallen into mud. I am caked by the mire of sin, My very being is stained by my falling. I come before my … Continue reading A Prayer for When We Fall
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17 (King James Version) The moment we accepted Christ as our Lord and Savior, we were given a promise. No longer will our lives be dictated by the ways of … Continue reading Promise of New Life
Before Jesus came into the world, we were separated from God and that gap was called sin. This chasm was so immense that nothing made by man can cross it. It was something that only God can breach.
When Christ came into the world, God was shooting a life line to humanity. The death of Jesus on the cross closed the gap between God and mankind, reuniting humanity to the love of God. All that is required from us to experience God’s love is to accept the gift of salvation offered by the blood of Christ.
The blood of Christ covers up all our shame from sin. Let us embrace Jesus blood covering and move forward in our walk with God knowing that we are redeemed. It is very comforting to know that our debt to God is paid and I am extremely grateful to Christ for paying it all. I will therefore do as He commands out of appreciation for what He has done for me.

“…and from Jesus Christ. He is the faithful witness to these things, the first to rise from the dead, and the ruler of all the kings of the world. All glory to him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by shedding his blood for us.” Revelation 1:5
Our victory is in the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
Our sins are washed away or removed from our accounts because of the blood.

My friends, the blood was shed for you and I to walk in total freedom. Jesus paid it all on the cross when His…

Our relationship with light is a love and hate one. We love it because it shows us the beauty of God's creation. We hate it also because it forces us to acknowledge the stains caused by our sins. Nevertheless, it is important for us to walk in the Light of Christ. In John 3:18-21, the apostle reveals the importance of being in His light and the consequences of remaining in darkness.
Welcome to the Bible Verse Application Minute. Once on the weekend, I will read a verse from the Bible and briefly describe how believers in Christ can apply to their every day life. This is the first I am doing this so please feel free to share your comments. God bless.
