Salvation is found in Jesus

Romans 8:1 Those who belong to Christ Jesus are no longer under God’s judgment.

Have you ever considered the consequences of God’s judgment?

Obadiah 1:15 “The day of the Lord is near for all the nations. Others will do to you what you have done to them.

You will be paid back for what you have done.”

We are all going to be held accountable for what we have done and be treated accordingly. 

How do you overcome God judgment? It is in the verse above take recovery seriously. Get into relationship with God and you will be saved,

Salvation is our assurance of God’s presence within us. Matthew 1:21says “She [Mary] is going to have a son. You must give him the name Jesus. That’s because he will save his people from their sins.”

Examine your motives, test your heart. Test yourselves to make sure you are solid in the faith. Don’t drift along taking everything for granted. Give yourselves regular checkups. You need firsthand evidence, not mere hearsay, that Jesus Christ is in you. Test it out. If you fail the test, do something about it.

Let’s take a good look at the way we’re living and reorder our lives under God.

We must allow God’s correction to bring about the kind of behavior in our life that pleases Him.

Prayer: Lord today I give my life to You. Take it, mould it and make it what You want it to be.

Take a Good Look at Yourself

Luke 11:35-36 Keep your eyes open, your lamp burning, so you don’t get musty and murky. 36 Keep your life as well-lighted as your best-lighted room.”

The first time I took an honest inventory of my life, my habits and attitudes was whilst staying in the William Booth Men’s Hostel in Whitmore Square in Adelaide in 1989. I had made a decision if I wanted my life to change I needed to know and understand myself. I still have a copy of that inventory. The language is colorful. A number of times in my spiritual walk I have re read it to remind myself where I begun this journey of spiritual recovery. Some of the things I wrote were not the truth nut at the time I believed them to be true. It is a true expression of how I was feeling at that time.

When was the last time you took an honest look at yourself?
