Evicting Sin!!

20180802_114612

Good morning, Redeemed Ones:

One of the most dangerous places to be is to be comfortable in our sin. There are some of us that have allowed sin to build a house. Sin has a comfortable bedroom with fluffy pillows. Sin has a state of the art kitchen and in the den it has all of the newest electronics so that it can relax and put its feet up.

Another thing that happens when we become comfortable in our sins. We invite and associate with people that are also comfortable in their sin. We invite our friends over so that their sin can feel at home as well.

Why is sin so comfortable? Sin is comfortable because we have made a place for it in our lives. Sin feels GREAT, otherwise we wouldn’t be doing it. 

Why?

We are being deceived! 

This is what the bible says:

1 John 1:5-10 

Living Bible (TLB)

This is the message God has given us to pass on to you: that God is Light and in him is no darkness at all. So if we say we are his friends but go on living in spiritual darkness and sin, we are lying. But if we are living in the light of God’s presence, just as Christ does, then we have wonderful fellowship and joy with each other, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from every sin.

If we say that we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and refusing to accept the truth. But if we confess our sins to him,  he can be depended on to forgive us and to cleanse us from every wrong. And it is perfectly proper for God to do this for us because Christ died to wash away our sins.* 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we are lying and calling God a liar, for he says we have sinned.

There is a way to change…

1. Confess

2. Ask for forgiveness 

3. Turn and run toward God

I love you with an amazing and everlasting love.

I want the very best of all that God has for you and for me. Jesus has the power to break the chains of sin in every area of our lives.

Trust God.  You can be free. Evict sin from your life. Jesus paid the ultimate price. Speak His Name.

In your darkest place, call out His name… JESUS!!!!!

  1. This is just what I needed to share with my teenage daughter who does not recognize the many tricks of the enemy. God Bless!

    1. Praise God. It’s funny. I struggled writing the devotional today. It felt like a fight. I usually send them out no later than 8:30 each morning. Today it was almost 1:00pm, but I knew it was important.
      I will be praying for you and your daughter.

      We stand in agreement with you, mother, that your daughter will be all that God has called her to be. We pray that her strongest desire will be to please God. We speak that her ears, eyes, mind and body will be closed off from the voices of the enemy. We ,the body of Christ, stand in the gap for her and seal this prayer in the power, chain-breaking name of Our Redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen
