“God is my rock and my salvation. He is my defender; I will not be defeated.” Psalms 62:2
This is complete freedom.
Not afraid, nor ashamed.
“Evil people run even though no one is chasing them,
but good people are as brave as a lion.”
Jesus forgives you your mistakes.
Jesus said it’s done. Go on!
“You will have mercy on us again; you will conquer our sins. You will throw away all our sins into the deepest part of the sea.”
The deepest part of the see.
This means forgiven forever!
Its in the water. It can’t come back.
It’s a new start.
This is also the symbol of baptism.
A new beginning.
The old life has died with all the sin and shame. The new life with Jesus is now beginning.
But we also have to forgive ourselves.
How do you know if you have not yet forgiven yourself?
If you still think about your mistake a lot.
Two monks came to the river and a beautiful young lady stands there. She cannot cross the river because it’s too dangerous. One monk without hesitation picks the lady up on his shoulder and crosses the river. Put the lady down and the continued on their journey. They didn’t talk for one hour. After one hour the monk said to the other. “You know we made a commitment not to touch a woman. You not only touched a woman, you carried her over the river on your shoulder. Why did you carry her over the river? You broke the commitment!”
“I know, I made a mistake.
But I left her one hour ago by the river, but you still carry her in your mind.”
That’s exactly how we are.
We make mistakes and than we carry them in our thoughts.
Receive the forgiveness of Jesus Christ.
Except the forgiveness of Jesus.
Believe that your sins are washed away.
This is living in the light.
It’s the grace of God.
The grace of God protects us like a shield.
Out of the biggest pile of crap the most beautiful roses grow.
Jesus can turn around anything to the best for us.
If we understand this. We know, that everything is possible for our God in heaven.
“So stand strong and use the shield of faith with which you can stop all the burning arrows of the Evil One.” Ephesians 6:14-16
You and me with Grace know, that God can turn every round.
LIVE WITHOUT GUILT
Have you ever looked into the eyes of a guilty person. They can’t keep eye-contact.
“We know very well what Satan’s plans are.”
2 Corinthians 2:11
The devil has always the same system to attack us.
This happened to the first people in the beginning.
The devil came in the form of a snake.
HOW TEMPTATION WORKS:
When eve saw the tree and the fruits. She wanted it.
The devil says it’s good for you.
The devil makes you think God has not good plans for you.
“Are you really sure God wants the best for you?”
“Is God even real! Can he hear you?”
If you do this it will be the best thing in Your life.
We do it. And than we are ashamed. We hide. No more in the light.
Adam and Eve were hiding behind the tree from God.
Sin always separates relationships!
UNFORGIVENESS DESTROYS RELATIONSHIPS
But God looks for you, Adam, where are you?
God knows where you are. You can never hide from God, but he asked you,
WHERE ARE YOU
The devil wants to separate my marriage, my family, my relationships, my church, …
Don’t let unforgiveness destroy your relationships!
We try to hide our sins.
Because we are ashamed.
We think if nobody knows it will go away.
It does not.
You know what you have done.
God has seen it.
God is looking for you right now.
“Where are you?”
This is the goodness of God.
FREEDOM IS ONLY POSSIBLE THROUGH FORGIVENESS
Jesus made a way.
Jesus does not condemn you.
But as long as we are not confessing our sins we will not be free.
“All these evil things begin inside the mind: evil thoughts, sexual sins, stealing, murder, greed, lying, jealousy, speaking evil of others,… All these evil things come from inside and make people unclean.”
YOU CAN LIVE FREE
