Do You Desire To Live An Overcomes Life?
DO YOU DESIRE TO LIVE AN OVERCOMES LIFE? "The presence of God in the midst of His people is always validate by Signs, Wonders and Diverse Miracles- Zeph. 1:17". My friend, the first step to living an overcomes life is to be Born Again, that is coming to God in true repentance, asking the blood of Jesus to cleanse away your sins and accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Have you ever taken this step? If your answer is "NO" please pray this simple prayer of Faith with all your heart and you shall be saved. "Lord Jesus I know that am a sinner, forgive me my sins, cleanse me with your blood. I believe you died for me and on the third day, you rose again that I might be justified. I therefore accept you today as my Lord and personal Savior and I thank you for delivering me from the power of sin and Satan to serve the living God. Now I know that I am saved, I am born again and I am now a Child of God" Amen. If you have prayed this prayer with all your heart, believe that your sins( seven deadly sins) are now forgiven, believe that you are now again and a member of God's Family. What are the seven daily deadly sins? According to the information found on http://www.google.com, the seven sins are: Lust to have an intense desire or need: But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart (Matthew 5:28). Gluttony excess in eating and drinking: for drunkards and gluttons become poor, and drowsiness clothes them in rags (Proverbs 23:21). Greed - excessive or reprehensible acquisitiveness: Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more (Ephesians 4:19). Laziness disinclined to activity or exertion: not energetic or vigorous: The way of the sluggard is blocked with thorns, but the path of the upright is a highway (Proverbs 15:19). Wrath strong vengeful anger or indignation: A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger (Proverbs 15:1) Envy painful or resentful awareness of an advantage enjoyed by another joined with a desire to possess the same advantage: Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation (1 Peter 2:1-2). Pride - quality or state of being proud inordinate self esteem: Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall (Proverbs 16:18). What are the seven detestable sins according to the Bible? According to information found on http://www.bing.com, There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers (Proverbs 6:16-19). One of our church leaders recently spoke on Acts 5:11. He mentioned how Ananias and Sapphira sold property and would give the proceeds to the church. However, they held back some of the money but said that they had given the entire proceeds. Gods judgment was immediate death. The sin of Ananias and Sapphira was not that they kept some of the profit, but that they lied to God and to the Apostles. Such immediate result is not the usual way God deals with us today. However, judgment and retribution for our sins are part of Gods way of running a balanced moral universe. We need to get the message across that we do not go on sinning thinking that we wont have to reckon with God and others. When we receive Christ as our Lord and Savior, we know He has conquered sin in our life. It is through His death that our sins have been cleansed and no longer to be remembered. Jesus life makes the difference. "Blessed are they whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord will never count against him (Romans 4:7-8). DAY OF PRAYER. 1. No matter the challenges of today, praise shall continually be in my mouth in the name of Jesus. 2.Oh Lord my God, give me power to do what will make my life more exciting in the name of Jesus. 3. Holy spirit, I pray the prayer of healing, heal my spiritual and physical blindness in the name of Jesus. 4.Oh Lord my God, remove difficulty from my life, let your purpose be established in the name of Jesus. 5.Satan, lose your grip and control on my destiny now in Jesus name. Amen.
