Cleansed and Pardoned

Jeremiah 33:8
And I will cleanse them from all their iniquity whereby they have sinned against Me; and I will pardon all their iniquities whereby they have sinned and whereby they have transgressed against Me.

It's always beneficial to be aware that when we sin, we really do sin against God. Being and staying aware of this fact will help assist in being ever mindful of our actions. This truth will also cultivate a healthy fear of God.
Fear and reverence is such a critical part of our walk with God. As I grow in my relationship with the Father, I have begun to deeply consider more my own attitude towards sin. I don't want to sin against God. I have found myself moving slower in my actions and reactions. I love the Father SO much and I never want to hurt Him purposely. The truth is I do sin, and when I do I "feel" horrible. I learn from it, think about how to avoid it again, and God cleanses me when I come to Him. While it is true we have to repent to come into the Kingdom, we also have to repent to stay in the Kingdom. As you disciple others, be truthful about your struggles, and teach them how you overcome. Too many people get Saved thinking that all the struggles in the flesh are over, and so they get deeply disappointed when they stumble. Tell them like God tells us, My little children I'm writing to you, that you will not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate who pleads our case with the Father , Jesus Christ who is truly righteous.

We love you and may YOU sow 
and or reap a great HARVEST this week!

God Deals With Our Sins, He Does Not Deny Them

He will again have compassion on us; He will tread our iniquities under foot. Yes, You will cast all their sins into the depths of the sea. Micah 7:19

God is a God of compassion and He much prefers to show us mercy than to show us His wrath. This Scripture shows us just how compassionate God is. He is not waiting to condemn us, nor is He wanting to condemn us. He lets us come to Him and tell Him what He already knows...then he turns around and deals with it for us. This Scripture says that God will tread our sins under His feet. I think about how when you see a nasty bug and you go to kill that critter. You stomp it under your feet, and then you move on. God moves on with us.... He forgives us, He teaches us how to do better, He disciplines us and we move on. As you share Jesus and disciple, let them know God is going to tread on their sins, and cast it far away from Him and them.

We love you and may you sow and or reap a great HARVEST this week.

Encouraged to Evangelize the Whosoevers!

For "Everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved."
Romans 10:13

Just stop and look real good at that picture and then say that Scripture again. See the connection??? Oh that picture thrills my soul because it's describing what a section of our population looks like and gravitates towards! The Good News is that Jesus came for EVERYBODY! He did not come just for this part of society or that part--NO! He came for ALL OF US!!!! Why? Because SIN affects all of us! Some people get intimidated by the way people "look"on the outside and guess what--that is the enemy's purpose! You see a young man or woman all tatted up and your flesh may want you to cross the street to avoid them OR they may just look plain scary! LOL!! I understand and so does God, but guess what? That fact does not release us from our assignment! We can't be SO Heavenly minded, that we are no Earthly good. No condemnation--but we have to be so careful NOT focus on the exterior, instead of the interior...the precious spirit of man. Let your concern for their possible eternal damnation, encourage you more than their outward appearance discourages you!

We love you, and may you sow and or reap a great Harvest this week!
