Life Through the Spirit

      Romans 8:1-2  “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.” It was impossible to keep all the Jewish laws; and it especially was difficult for women who were not considered significant to society. It’s amazing Jesus raised status of women. And no matter how sinful. He forgave sins and instead of condemning a woman told her to go and not continue living sinful lives. “The teachers of the law …

Being Forgiven

  Isaiah 43:25 “I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more. Matthew 6:14-15 “For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.  But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.” 1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” King David was named as a man after God’s own heart. He was righteous, a man of character and …

Create in Me A Clean Heart

    So many times, we allow the actions of others to depict the way we live our lives. The decisions we make become based upon the world’s idea of what we should do and not based on what the Father would have us do. I love the Lord and I want to live for Him, to be a light to shine for others, to help others and speak only as Christ would have me speak. I know that I have done many things in my past that may not have exactly represented God….there was a period of time in my life that I even …

Forever Forgiveness

              “…their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” Hebrews 10:17 Have you ever pondered on this verse? There is no comparison to any other thing in our lives! I have heard Christians say, “there is nothing God cannot do!” I understand the premise for their statement, but I would say (and thankfully so) that there really are some things God cannot do. He cannot lie, He cannot sin, He cannot change, and there are others, but what a blessing that He cannot remember forgiven sin!!! What a gift!  What freedom!!! …

The Word is – Woman

What a word for a fabulous Friday morning.  It’s been a week, September was a month, October is on a roll and in fact, the last year has been cray cray! I wouldn’t want to go through any of it again.  But when I think about the Lord and His overwhelming, unbelievable, supernatural love for me I just remember these words… “Dear Woman, why are you crying?” Do you know a more beautiful word than woman?  Jesus spoke it first upon His resurrection and He spoke it with love and concern.  He found her looking for Him! He went on …

The Blood Sacrifice

    John 1: 29  “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” The Old Testament gives vivid, detailed instructions about the offering of a sacrifice in atonement for sin.  Since Jesus was the sacrifice for your sins and mine, we do not offer blood sacrifices on this side of the cross.  And because our culture is so different from God’s people in the Old Testament, we often do not fully understand the significance of its meaning. Because sin had entered the world through Adam and Eve, man could no longer come into the presences …
