“In the beginning, as said in the bible when God created the universe He saw that everything was good and perfect in his sight”
Well you must be thinking where is she going with this? What’s this post all about?
Before you start wondering and thinking what’s going on, let me explicit to you the reason why I’ve chosen to write it.
“ God created you in perfection, simply because He is God and He doesn’t make mistakes”
As the bible says in psalm 139: 14 “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well”
So if God created everything in perfection, then what went wrong?
Why are there sufferings and people dying? Humans hating on each other?
Ah! The well-known questions! We hear them about every day.
What went wrong with the world God had made so perfect at the beginning?
Well the bible gives a simple answer “ SIN”
Sin means: breaking God’s law. It is the tendency we all have to do wrong
When God first gave people the chance of going His way, we chose instead to please ourselves and to go against God. We have been going our own way ever since.
The bible says we all have sinned against God and fall short of His glory (Romans3: 23)
And that the wage of sin is death!
Now before any of you collapse in front of the screen after reading this, thinking, “ does it mean I AM GONNA DIE?”
Ladies, Take a deep breath and don’t take your eyes off the screen, you’re about to smile again as you once did when you bought a box of chocolate, or went shopping just because you felt like it!
As I said earlier that sin is the tendency we all have to do wrong.
The apostle Paul is a real and amazing example of this when he describe it in Romans 7:18-19 “For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing”
Sin separates us from God. It hinders our prayer.
Here we see that sin is attached to the flesh and that our flesh is led by sin.
Because of our sin we have gone astray, our own way. The bible describes us as sheep (it’s a metaphor ladies, before you take out your mirror thinking “does this hair cut makes me look like a sheep?”) Isaiah 53:6
A person goes his own way instead of God’s way and always lands in trouble. It’s a bit like a car with faulty steering. However much you want to go straight, it’s always pulling to one side. If something isn’t done about it, then you are likely to end up in a ditch!
We sin in many ways, with our thoughts, our words, our actions and even a lack of action.
Here’s when the good news of a super hero coming to save a lady in distress is needed.
Lucky for us, God in his loving mercy and grace saw that we needed a savior. A perfect sacrifice, a person, who will bear the sin of all humanity! (Well that must be heavy !!)
God sent his one and only son. He offered him as a sacrifice to save humanity.
Jesus Christ came and humbled himself, he gave himself as a sacrifice for our sin.
The bible says that He was rejected by His own, but because of his grace and love he didn’t chose to let us in condemnation but instead He chose to die so that we can have eternal life and share His joy when he returns to take his chosen ones, what a mind blowing thing! Almost gave you goose bump, innit?
Romans 6:23 say that for the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
So when you repent from your sin, put your trust and faith in Christ and confess that He is your lord and savior; you have eternal life in Jesus Christ and sin can’t hold you anymore!
The bible says in romans 8:1 “ Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, 2 because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.”
Yes, you can now go around the house and the neighbourhood shouting I AM FREE IN CHRIST!
God is merciful and gracious. He didn’t just simply save us from eternal judgment but He went beyond it by his grace and adopted us as His own, to make us heirs of eternal life, and to give us every spiritual blessing in heaven!
We are now co-heir with Christ?! The king of kings, the lord of lords who has everything in his hands, has given you his kingdom in heritage! Just thinking about that gets me gassed!
Romans 8:16-17 “The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.”
So to finish with enthusiasm as we started, let me tell you something: don’t let sin hold you back today! Confess Jesus Christ as your lord and saviour and repent from all your wrongs. For the Lord wants us to live a life of constant repentance; He knows that we are not perfect and that every one is a sinner but by His grace has forgiven us, that is the very reason why He died on the cross. HE DIED FOR YOU, AND ME!
Let us not be conform to this world ladies but let us be transformed by the renewing of our mind in order to discern what God’s pleasing, perfect and good will is.
Let us always humble ourselves before the mighty lion of Judah and ask for forgiveness for who can kneel before God, can stand before great men!
Break the chains that once used to bind you and declare over your life that Jesus Christ came to set the captives free and lead you into eternal joy and happiness.
I take this opportunity to tell someone out there who hasn’t made Jesus Christ has their Lord and saviour. Today the Lord, your Dad in heaven is calling you! Come to me and I will give you peace. He knows your heart and saw how you fought so hard and how life has wronged you, but today He says don’t fight anymore for I fought for you at the cross and won the victory, I won it all for you.
This is a prayer of salvation for those willing to give accept Christ , to surrender it all unto the hands of the great Creator and receive his love. Now say it like you mean it!
"Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey you, and to do your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen."
I pray anyone that was reading this is abundantly blessed.
