Have you experienced the wooing of the Holy Spirit? A gentle nudging to surrender completely to God. Listen to this story of Nicodemus who found himself being drawn to Jesus, though he was a man who had need of nothing.
Sometimes people say, “I know I have been forgiven by God, and as far as I know I have forgiven everyone, but something is still wrong.” My friend, the problem is self-directed. God has forgiven you, once and for all. Forgive yourself of what God has already forgiven you for.
The Bible teaches the human race came from the first man Adam. We inherited sin from Adam. That sin separates us from God. Therefore, we must be born again, in Christ.
This message speaks of two rests. There is a rest from the burden of sin that comes with salvation and the rest from the burden of self that comes with surrender.
Our loving, Lord Jesus, in love, warned every person in this whole world that there are only two places to go upon your death. A place He called Heaven or a place He called Hell. Please listen, believe, and receive before you pass away forever. It’s your decision, alone.
It is not our faith in God’s faithfulness, it is simply God is faithful. No matter what you do and no matter what this world system may come to, we must remember, God is faithful to His own. It is His perfect nature to be perfectly faithful.
Every child of God has the Holy Spirit living in them. Be a person who listens to the Holy Spirit and obeys the Holy Spirit. Surrender to God and say “yes” to the things He is asking you to do, and you will be that person who keeps in step with the Spirit.
You know you are God’s child. But, like all of God’s children, you have sinned since you received Christ. You grew up in a church environment of well meaning Christians, but, they were unknowingly, legalists. My friend, be encouraged! We love you, so listen.
