Be Transformed by Renewing Your Mind
The Good News
Through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we have a relationship with God the Father. Jesus was sent because the father knew no man can be perfect so he sent his son to forgive us of ALL our sins and live a meaningful life of joy and peace.
Unfortunately, many of us have been hurt, betrayed, used by others and still live miserable and defeated lives without peace and joy.
It is our belief system which still controls the way we live think, feel and choose. Today is the first step how to change these corruptable belief system.
We Were Created to Be a Friend of God
Finding Peace in God
We are complete only when we are in relationship with God:
- Man was created to have intimate love relationship with His Creator. Matt. 22:37; John 15:9, 13
- Man was created in God’s image to know and enjoy God. Gen. 1:27; Pslam 16:11
- Man was designed to live dependent upon God. John 15:5
- Man was created to contain the very life of God and to live by that life. John 10:10
But some how many of us believed the lie causing tragic separation in man’s relationship with God…. but this did not stop God from loving us. He will never stop loving you saved or not saved.
The only difference between being saved and not saved is that if you are saved, you become a child of God, a royal priesthood and loved with an everlasting love. Most of all you get all the benefits and promises and escape eternal death and torment. Not only that, you receive the Love of God through what Jesus demonstrated on the Cross.
Satan is the one who keeps you separated from God by reminding you who hurt you or tries to get you to blame God for your misfortunes.
Remember the story of Adam and Eve! What caused her to eat from the tree? Was it because Satan made her believe that God was holding back on her? Isn’t Satan the accuser of us, God and others?
His purpose is to get you to believe lies to keep you separated and not fulfilling your destiny or high purposes God has for you.
Their sin separted them from the love of God but God never stopped loving them and made a way through his son.
We were all born spiritually dead and separated from God. When we learn about Jesus and invite Him in our hearts, then we are no longer separated; but the lies we believe from Satan do separate us from the truth.
You see, God took it upon Himself to restsore our relationship with Him through his son. He had a plan to restore us back to a right relationship with Him. Eph. 2:4-5
Thank goodness, through Jesus Christ, he gave us life as a payment for the sins of the whole world through Jesus Christ. His perfect sacrifice satisfied the Father because the Father God of Heaven wants a relationship with you.
2 Corinthians 5:19 “To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.”
Through Jesus life, death ressurection, we have been totally forgiven by God when we invite Jesus into our hearts. When we fall short, we have access of the son for our forgiveness of sin.
Col. 2:13-14 “13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
It is a free gift to all who will receive the son through believing and trusting in Jesus.
John 3:17-18 “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.”
Through this we are deeply and unconditionally loved by God
You might have grown up in a conditional loved home but your Heavenly Father loves you unconditionally. You do not have to work or perform for his love. He loves you just for who you are. Remember He created you and you are made in His image. Rom. 5:8
God totally and completely accepts you. This means he accepts you just for who you are. That means he receives us to Himself with pleasure and responds to us in kindness.
