He Is A New Creation- Old Things Have Passed Away…

“You can be sure, the Holy Spirit never enters a man and lets him live like the world.” A.W. Tozer

  • For the Lord loves the just and will not forsake His faithful ones. Psalm 37:28
  • No one who lives in Him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen Him or known Him. 1 John 3:6

 

If you are a child of God, you will never be happy living in sin.” Charles H. Spurgeon

  • No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God. This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not God’s child, nor is anyone who does not love their brother and sister. 1 John 3:9-10
  • For whom the Lord loves He chastens,
    And scourges every son whom He receives.” If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. Hebrews 12:6-8

“If it goes against His Word, it is not His Will.”

  • He who covers his sins will not prosper, But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy. Proverbs 28:13
  • He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him. John 14:21

“You must be divorced from your sin, or you cannot be married to Christ.” Charles H. Spurgeon

  • Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the Lord, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:7

 

“It is not the absence of sin but the grieving over it which distinguishes the child of God from empty professors.” A.W. Pink

  • What does the Lord your God require of you, but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways and to love Him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to keep the commandments of the Lord and His statutes which I command you today for your good. Deuteronomy 10:12-13

 

“If you and sin are friends, you and God are not yet reconciled.” J.C. Ryle

  • One who turns away his ear from hearing the law, Even his prayer is an abomination. Proverbs 28:9

“The closer we are to God, the more the slightest sin will cause us deep sorrow.’ R.C. Sproul

  • What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? Romans 6:1-2

“When we water down the meaning of sin, we water down the SACRIFICE which paid for it.”

  • Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
  • For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins. Hebrews 10:26
  • Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17

“Grace did not save Noah from the flood, obedience did.”

  • For the Lord loves the just and will not forsake His faithful ones. Psalm 37:28
  • But he who endures to the end shall be saved. Matthew 24:13

 

“Sin, even if legalized by man, is still sin in the sight of God. His doctrine is not ours to change.” Russell M. Nelson

  • You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you. Deuteronomy 4:2
  • For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. Revelation 22:18-19

 

 

Father, I thank you for Your Word. I thank you for all the trials and blessings that cause your followers to dive deeper into Your Word and become closer to you.

  • And we know that ALL things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to HIS purpose. Romans 8:28
  • “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32

I praise you for the knowledge and wisdom that you freely give if we ask and seek.

  • If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.” James 1:5-6 

I lift up all my readers, I pray for them Father that you bless them.

  • The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. Numbers 6:24-26

Most of all Father, I ask that you have Your Word touch their heart.

  • “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12.

Remind them Lord, that only you can remove the heart of stone, (Thank you for removing the callous from mine).

  •  I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. Ezekiel 36:26-27
  • No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. John 6:44

Help us to remember to pray fervently for our loved ones… to pray without ceasing and thanking you in ALL things.

  • Rejoice always,  pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
  • Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. James 5:16

Guide us Lord, help us do Your Will no matter what the world thinks.

  • “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:2

Lord surround us with your love even when the world hates us for speaking Your Truth.

  • “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.  If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also. John 15:18-20

Help us to remember that its more than just BELIEVING, we must walk in Your commandments and Your Will.

  • You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! James 2:19

In all these things I ask, in Your Son, JESUS, precious name- Amen.

Jesus
