To be Honest:
Sometimes I struggle with this.
I want to lean in on my emotions, which I know that if I do, it will be like a wave up & down. This is not how God & Jesus wants me to be.
Also, I struggle with, do I have too much knowledge of God & Jesus. Does this mean, I’m leaning in on the knowledge of The Bible for my Faith?
This I Know, Believe & Trust(Rest In/on, in My Heart) that Jesus died for me, while I was & still a sinner.
Jesus took the wrath & punishment of God, that I deserve for my sins; to the Cross. By doing this, Jesus substituted his life(Sacrificed),for my life. Jesus atoning work on the Cross, reconciled me to God, but the shedding of the Blood of Jesus.
When Jesus was buried in the grave, God buried my sins there too(So when I came to Faith in Jesus, those sins were buried & forgiven.)
Now that Jesus is Resurrected(which means Jesus walked out of the grave, Alive) in Heaven & seated at the Right Hand of God, I am also seated, the Holy Spirit Living in me.
I do see the changes that God, is doing in my life, my heart & my mind.
Writing Legislation into Law won’t, change a person heart or mind.
It take a transformation from the inside.
Jesus is the answer to all the problems of the World.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
(17)For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
(18)He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
John 3:16-18 KJV
“Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord!
O Lord, hear my voice!
Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleas for mercy!
If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand?
But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared.
I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning.
O Israel / America, hope in the Lord! For with the Lord there is steadfast love, and with him is plentiful redemption.
And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities.”
“For it is time for judgment to begin at the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? And “If the righteous is scarcely saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?””
“Jesus taught this parable to those who were convinced they were morally upright and those who trusted in their own virtue yet looked down on others with disgust: “Once there were two men who went into the temple to pray. One was a proud religious leader, the other a despised tax collector.
The religious leader stood apart from the others and prayed, ‘How I thank you, O God, that I’m not wicked like everyone else. They’re cheaters, swindlers, and crooks—like that tax collector over there. God, you know that I never cheat or commit adultery; I fast from food twice a week and I give you a tenth of all I make.’
“The tax collector stood off alone in the corner, away from the Holy Place, and covered his face in his hands, feeling that he was unworthy to even look up to God. Beating his breast, he sobbed with brokenness and tears saying, ‘God, please, in your mercy and because of the blood sacrifice, forgive me, for I am nothing but the most miserable of all sinners!’(Amen)
“Which one of them left for home that day made right with God?
It was the humble tax collector and not the religious leader!
For everyone who praises himself will one day be humiliated before all, and everyone who humbles himself will one day be lifted up and honored before all.”
Luke 18:9-14 TPT
