In this blog post I want to share part of a lesson that I recently prepared for one of my discipleship classes in Juarez, Mexico.
A lot of people are haunted by the sins of the past and cannot let them go. Others have a problem giving up their sin life totally. Although they want to stop, they always fall back to the same thing and they continually repeat that which they hate.
Their sin is destroying them and their loved ones. They feel that their sin is far to evil for God to forgive.
My hope and prayer is that this post will help you. Maybe you know of someone with this "Confesiones cd juarez" struggle. If you know of such a person you may want to share this with them and help them rise up and get a brand new start. Of course this is not a book, it's just a short blog. A whole lot more than what I Confesiones cd juarez here can be said.
But hopefully this will be a start. I suggest to those who are struggling with sin to follow this up by confession to God, Christian friends, a pastor, or anyone that you confide inseek forgiveness including forgiving yourselfand seek further help. Get your bible out now and find the scriptures listed on this post.
Probably the most quoted Bible verses used in churches, books, teachings, etc. Before Paul knew anything about Jesus he persecuted Christians, brought them before the authorities, and many of them died under his direction. Yet God arranged for this man who wanted the destruction of God's own people to come to know Him read Acts chapter 9.
God had a plan for Paul and He has a plan for you see Jeremiah God changed Paul so radically that He even changed his name his name used to be Saul. Paul became the greatest figure in the life of the early church. And his contribution to God's Kingdom continues today even though he
Confesiones cd juarez about 2, years ago.
So don't believe the lie that you are hopeless.
Satan is a liar. He is called the father of lies by Jesus John 8: But Jesus is the truth John He came to destroy the works of Satan 1 John 3: Don't listen to the Devil's lies, listen to God's truth.
After all, who has the final word?
Let me paint you a picture. You're standing under the cross of Jesus, who is God in the flesh. His blood is running down the cross and falling to the ground. His lifeless body was the payment made for your sins Romans 6: He had no sin. You believe and accept His sacrifice as the offering for your sins, ALL of your
Confesiones cd juarez. You hear the Father's voice from Heaven.
He asks you, "Did you commit murder"? Now you can point to the body of Jesus and say, "No, it was He who did it". The Father can ask about your adultery, your stealing, your lies, and an endless list of every imaginable sin that you have committed. And to each and every one of the questions you can answer the same way: No, it wasn't me, it was He who did it.
That's what it means when we say that Jesus took our sins upon Himself. And it gets even better for us. There is a trade off. Our sins are taken on by Jesus and we take on His righteousness. When God looks at you it's as if He looked into a mirror. He sees His own Confesiones cd juarez. Through Christ we have become the righteousness of God. We receive all this by faith believing and because of God's great love for us John 3: Do you believe that your sins are too great, too terrible for God to forgive you?
Then what you believe is that your sins are greater than the power of the blood of Jesus. No, my friend, the blood of Jesus is the most powerful thing on Earth. Through your faith "Confesiones cd juarez" Jesus you will become a son of God.
Not all are sons of God. We are all created by God, but not all are sons. Those who do not believe in God and do not serve Him are sons of Satan John 8: I would not want to be a son of Satan.
I used to be, but not anymore. Ask the Lord to open up your eyes that Satan has blinded 2 Corinthians 4: And then you will Confesiones cd juarez set free!! And you will no longer want to live in sin. No son of God purposely sins. Our sinful nature is gone; taken away by the blood of Jesus and the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will live in you and direct you in your new life as a son of God.
You will love Jesus so much that you will no longer desire to sin to keep mounting your sins upon the body of Jesus. If you want God to forgive you, first you need to repent. Ask Him to remove your sins through the sacrifice of Jesus. Ask Him to take away the desire of sin as He comes in to live in you.
Ask Him to give you a hunger for his word and therefore increase your faith Romans As the Holy Spirit to help you live this new life in Christ. Ask Him to help others forgive you. And thank him for making you Confesiones cd juarez new creation You have been born again John 3: Now go tell others about the new you.
Not all will accept you but that's alright. Remember Satan is a liar and the Confesiones cd juarez of lies. Satan came to kill, steal, and destroy but Jesus came that you may have life John Please send me your comments on the comments section below.
Welcome to the family of God. All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts.
Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.
And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. Posted by Daniel Torres at 4: In a couple of weeks I'll reach Confesiones cd juarez 7 year mark of serving in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. No missionary ever forgets their departure from what they used to call home to the new residence appointed to them "Confesiones cd juarez" the Lord.
When the departure date is finally set there comes a flood of innumerable feelings, and sentiments. A missionary needs to know that he has heard the voice of God without question or there will be many problems. The departure then becomes a great test of faith. I recall pulling all my worldly belongings in a rental trailer for miles from Searcy, Arkansas to El Paso, Texas from there I would then cross into Juarez, Mexico.
It seemed that the enemy's voice challenged me every mile traveled. I had left behind many securities of life, but I wasn't sure what would happen to me once I reached what was then called the most dangerous city in the world. Before my departure most people that I knew were very kind and supportive.
I left with their promise to pray for me, which meant more to me than gold. But there were very few that challenged me. They disagreed with what Confesiones cd juarez was doing.
