Have you ever Felt this Way? Part II of IIII
Did you Know that a Jelly Fish has no Brain? Works of the Flesh My Friend…Works of the Flesh…
Temptation. Which I now realize are Distractions. (<—Revelation 1)
You see, I used to think of temptation as SIN, You know, falling into the serious Stuff such as Adultery O_O.
Which I looked it Up…
Synonyms of Sin
1. trespass, violation. 2. wrong, wickedness. 4. transgress, trespass.
(side note: I thought the Synonym of Sin would entail More of where I’m going with this..)
I was lost in translation. Sin is not just Lust, Adultery, Greed, Sloth, etc.
Temptation can result in Sin.
Sin is actually doing things outside of GOD‘s will for you. I’m sure you’ve heard that sin means “Missing the Mark“. They are also Distractions from God‘s Path. “Trespassing” to territories where we do not belong. Where God‘s Love does not Abide.
Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4
God‘s will is not intended for us to Feel bad about ourselves. In the contrary He wants you to know that You are Forgiven and the way Back to the Path is through Jesus Christ who Suffered & Died For our Sins.
Staying in Love is a conscience decision we must make every time!
We do not belong outside of God‘s Will. PERIOD. Doing things Outside of GOD‘s word is a Sin.
We prove ourselves by our purity, our understanding, our patience, our kindness, by the Holy Spirit within us, and by our sincere love. 2 Corinthians 6:6
Workings of the Flesh? Yup Sin…
Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death. James 1:15
You see Temptation is a desire that is outside of God‘s will. Which leads to death…
We Sin therefore we Die.
But I noticed people do not like to Admit “I’ve Sin“. They rather say…Oh I made a mistake… which really means “Oh I’ve Sin” but “sugar coated”.
Let’s Just call it what it is.
If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 1 John 1:8
I was oblivious to this. Yes, I Sin. At times I “miss the Mark“, At times I do Stray. YES, I am a Sinner.
Crying No Scratch that!
I’m more than a Conqueror. Jesus Christ Died for Me…
I’m Forgiven! Hallelujah!
YOU are FORGIVEN!
Glory Be to GOD the MOST HIGH!!!
We always have to remember that when we fall down, repeat Out loud Confess with your Mouth,
“Jesus Christ Saved Me!”
Read over MARK 15.
When we are tempted we must crucify the flesh, We must take up the Cross,
And Confess GOD‘s ETERNAL WORD.
I believe when many of Us “Christians” Receive the Gift of Salvation we tend to Forget that, PRIDE is a SIN. A HUGE One!
