It won’t be this way for long. The sidewalk where I stood while Butch was outside, was dirty from not having swept it thoroughly before the snow. The snow shown, and glistened in the sunshine that came as I stood out in the cold waiting for Butch to come back to me. He didn’t want to go outside by himself. He won’t be given a chance to leave a present this time. I had to clean up the present last time, when I got up early. No one was around to help me out.
I am wary of things at times. Other times I just pray. That is what the Holy Spirit in me wants. The power of prayer is profound. It makes me sane. It calms me, and eventually I can read the Word, and be dealt with on the inside where it counts. I have read Matthew 7 today, and it talks very straight about life.
It would be horrible to always think I was going to heaven, and then die, and not make it. The road is wide that leads to destruction. There are plenty of choices on the way that detour a Christian. You either have Him inside you, or you don’t. It is like being pregnant. You either are, or aren’t. That is a simple example, but we can’t be good enough to go to heaven. The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us, miraculously when we humble ourselves before God, and confess our sins. We don’t hope to go to Heaven. We know we are, or we are fooling ourselves. It is a matter of totally surrendering to God, in Jesus name. That means surrender from head to toe, inside and out. Have you?
I believe your walk is daily. There is an assurance that you are trusting Christ for your salvation, and living for Him. God in you, is the Hope of Glory. Those who are His have changed from walking in the darkness, to now walking in the Light.
1 John 1:7-9 says if we confess our sins, He is faithful, and just to forgive our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. All means all. The blood of Christ cleanses us from all sins. We confess them to God, and He forgives us in Jesus name. Jesus died for that horrible, awful sin you have done. He wants you to confess it as sin, and come clean.
Expect God to wash you from the guilt, but the results will be there. He heals that also. We confess our sins to God, and ask forgiveness in Jesus name. The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sins. Of course we have to deal with the consequences to sin. We always have to deal with them, but knowing that God forgives is wonderful.
Everyone has sinned. Everyone has a sinful, nature. The blood of Jesus Christ was shed because God needed us to have a Savior, and Jesus Christ died that we would have life, abundantly. He died because He died for the world. He rose again, and sits enthroned on the praises of His people.
God is not willing that anyone perish. He wants everyone to come to Christ, and receive forgiveness by the blood Christ shed for you, and me. This is why when we confess our sins to Him. We receive forgiveness. When we receive Christ as our Savior, the Holy Spirit comes in, and we are His children. We begin from that moment, walking in the light instead of the darkness.
