What we walk and abide in
Good morning brothers and sisters. I want to thank each and everyone of you of supporting me and holding me accountable. I love each of you. I do not have to personally know you to love you. If you are in Christ Jesus, then you are my brother and sister. We are family. Now I know that we have looked at this scripture before but the Lord has led me here again. I truly don't know who it is for but it is for someone, could be me. I really don't know. If this is for you, then give thanks and honor and glory to God for He sent you a message. So lets look again at 1 John 2:1-11. This is how we know. I don't if it could get much more plain. This describes God's nature and the relation that we are to have with God. 1-My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may NOT sin. And IF anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ, the righteous. 2- And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world. Stop right there for a moment. Jesus is fighting for us. He took our sins and continues to take them. So why do we not try our best not to sin. Today, stopping saying, I am a human and I will always sin. Today, say I am saved by Jesus Christ and I will do all in my power not to sin and then when I do, Jesus is fighting for me. 3- Now by this we know that we know Him, IF we keep His commandments. 4- He who says, I know Him, and does not keep His commandments, is a LIAR, and the TRUTH is NOT in him. 5- But whoever keeps His word, truly the LOVE of God is PERFECTED in him. By this we know that we are in Him. 6- He who says he ABIDES in Him ought to himself also to WALK just as He walked. 7- Brethren, I write no new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which you heard form the beginning. 8- Again, a new commandment I write to you, which thing is true in Him and IN you, because the darkness IS passing away, and the true light IS already shining. 9- He who says he is IN the light, and hates his brother, is IN darkness until now. 10- He who LOVES his brother ABIDES in the light, and there is NO cause for stumbling in him. 11- But he who hates his brother is IN darkness and WALKS in darkness, and does not know where he is going because the darkness has blinded his eyes. If you are in Christ Jesus, then you are living for Him and there is no darkness in you. So see if we stay truly connected to Jesus we will not want to sin and we will do all that is within us to not sin. Also know anyone who is in Christ Jesus is your brother and sister. You don't get to chose, God does. Maybe it is someone who has terribly hurt you but since has given their life to God. They ARE your brother and sister. Lets turn all this hatred into love and let the light of Jesus Christ shine like a beacon in the night. Have a blessed day and rise up children of God, rise up!
