OVERCOMING LIES

TEXT: 1John 5:1-6, Colossians 3:9.

Every child of God has the seed of God in him or her. From that seed comes a tree, which eventually bears the fruit of the Holy Spirit (Gal 5:22-23).
   
In 1John 3:9 says whosoever is born of God do not commit sin. The moment you are born again, you have overcome the world and have the power to overcome sin like Jesus did. That means it is possible for you to live without lying throughout this year and beyond.

HOW CAN I OVERCOME LIES.

1   Fear God above every man. There is a limit to what men can do for you  but there is no limit to what God can do (Ps 27:1, Heb 13:6).

2   Diligently studying and memorizing the word of God. The more you study the word of God, the less you will sin. (Psalms 119:11).

3   A commitment to a lifestyle of truth. Each time you refuse to lie, your act of faith is recorded for righteousness and Jesus will be proud of you.

4   You need to watch your mouth and put a padlock on it. Avoid talking too much for “in the multitudes of words sin is not lacking. (Proverb 10:19). Think before you talk. Be quick to hear but slow to speak (James 1:19).

  PRAYER POINT.

1      Father help me to live a life of holiness in Jesus name.
2      Father, let your Holy Spirit take over me completely in Jesus name.

Jesus Christ is Lord.

JESUS IS THE WAY

TEXT: John 3:1-7; and verse 16.

Jesus Christ was with the father before the world was created. He became human and lived among men as Jesus of Nazareth. He lived a sinless life, showing us how to live. He died on the cross to pay for our sins. He paid a great a price by giving up Himself as a sacrificial Lamb. {John 1:29}.

The reason for His death is for you and I to have eternal life if we believe. {John 3:5}.
Jesus is the way to blessings, joy, health, peace and escape from the wrath of God, victory and the way to glory. True blessing come only through Jesus Christ. That is a happy, a peaceful life, reigning with Christ in heaven, and a victorious life above sin.

No one can know true joy until he has come to Jesus because He is the way to joy {John 15:11}. True joy begins with salvation {Isaiah 61:10}. To have uninterrupted joy you must stay with Jesus Christ. [Psalm 16;11; 1 Peter 1:8]. Anyone who does not know Christ, the prince of peace can never have true peace. Jesus is the way to peace.

God is everywhere and knows all things. That is why a sinner cannot escape from His wrath by running from one place to another or by hiding from Him. The Bible says in Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death: But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." The only way of escape is Jesus Christ. {Hebrew 2:3}.

The sinner is continuously at war with sin, sickness, satan, demons and all other powers of darkness and worse still with Himself. {Job 15:20-21}.
Thank God for Jesus Christ, who is the way to victory. {1 Corinthians 15:57}. And those with Him shall not be defeated. {Romans 8:31}.

Jesus is the source of eternal life. The Bible says He is the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world {John 1:29}.

Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" John 14:6. He is waiting for you now. He wants to be the door way to new life for you.

The first step to take is admit that you are a sinner. Believe in your heart that Jesus died for you. You must repent from your sins. No matter the type of sin you might have committed, He is ready to forgive you and cleanse your unrighteousness.

Believing in Him as your Savior, you can accept Jesus gift of forgiveness from your sins.

To receive Jesus Christ into your life, please pray this prayer below:

Heavenly Father, I come to you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. I believe in my heart that He died for my sins, I believe that you raised from the dead for my justification. I receive Him today into my heart and my life as my personal Lord and Savior, and I give God the glory. Amen.

If you have sincerely prayed this prayer, then you are now Born again. Congratulations dear friend!

For further enrichment in the word of God, please look for any Bible Believing Church where the word of God is being preached.

Remain blessed!!

GOD BLESS YOU

My Brothers and Sisters,

Take a look at your life. See all your mistakes, weakness, disappointments and failures. See your loss and pain and see how the Lord has been with you. He stood with you in the most trying times. Why not thank him and appreciate him for his mercies? He who has helped you thus far will help you to the end. Amen!

In this new month of July, my Lord is building up your life. He is putting each block in its rightful place. He is not through with you yet. He is the Master Builder, who knows exactly how to make you what you ought to be. Stay right with Him so that he can perfect what he has begun. God bless you.

Love from Edith
