WWJD

It breaks my heart to see how so many churches have slowly but steadily turned away from the truths of the Bible. Many are becoming politically correct places for people to feel good about themselves. Without the knowledge of sin there is really no need for a savior. We must be shown our wrongdoing to continue a relationship with Christ.

Jesus associated with all kinds of low-lifes in His ministry. He ate with tax collectors, He ministered to prostitutes, He chastised the hierarchy of the church for their sinful behavior. He healed those with contagious diseases, raised some from death, but first and foremost He told sinners there was hope for them. None of us is exempt from the pangs of sin, but through faith in the work Jesus has done for us, we can be confident of forgiveness. We will never really be free from our sinful behavior until we pass into eternity, so we must ask for forgiveness daily and walk away from the sins that torment us.

Lord, you paid the ultimate price for my salvation. Lead me now from evil and into the paths of righteousness.  Amen!

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. Excellent Kathy. Unfortunately, churches are giving the people exactly what they want, not what they need.

    This is a really good post kathy.
    And it’s a subject that has perplexed me and agonized me at times.
    What do I mean?
    I mean Hebrews 9.22 tells us that we are only forgiven by blood.
    So how does verbal requests for forgiveness fit with scripture? Especially post cross, where the blood has been shed.
    I can’t help myself from asking for forgiveness from God, but to be candid, I can’t really find any scriptural support for my asking for forgiveness, (as contrasted with blood for forgiveness).
    Some people say 1 John 1.9 is the solution, and maybe it is.
    But when I read the whole of 1 John chapter 1, I see an appeal for a lost person to get saved. Maybe I’m wrong. But that’s honestly what I see when I read that chapter.

    Ah well, that’s just my thought. Not necessarily the truth, just the thoughts of an imperfect man.

      I believe that the sacrifice of the unblemished Lamb of God, Jesus, shed his blood once for all sinners. If we don’t believe that we are not allowing his blessings to wash away our sins. Asking for forgiveness is our repentance and it’s something we must Continue to do since we sin daily. The grace whereby we are saved is not of our doing. It’s all about Jesus.

      Btw we are all sinners and deserve God’s punishment but he lives us unconditionally. How great is that?

      I feel like Acts 2:38 is a good indicator of asking for forgiveness when we are told to repent for the remission of sins and the gift of the Holy Spirit (Eternal lie and He himself). My thought that quick
      ly came to mind.

        Good mornin blink,
        That verse I believe is dealing with coming to salvation.
        What I was thinking of was how someone who’s already a Christian deals with ongoing sin.
        For sure, repent of it,
        (And I still ask God for forgiveness).
        But I can’t find any scriptural instruction post cross/ post bloodshed that directs Christians to continually seek forgiveness verbally.
        (See my thoughts above about my reading of 1 John 1.9).

        Do you ever wrestle with this in light of Colossians 2.13 and Hebrews 9.22?
        (If you haven’t read those 2 verses recently, please read them real quick to refresh your perspective).

        And God bless you for your love for our Lord.

        I just now posted Psalms 32 and 51. And I believe that the answer is there as well…yes, continue to seek God’s forgiveness as you sin.
