There’s been a heart of compassion in my heart for those that street preach the gospel of Jesus. In my opinion they are on the front lines (missionaries also) and are out there ministering the gospel of grace and mercy in Jesus Christ right in the face of sin.
Our Father is so very gracious to have sent Jesus to take ON our sins so that we would not be condemned. When we practice and live in Sin we are saying to the Holy Father, a couple of things one of them is i believe we are saying with our ways that “We do not care what Jesus has done for us, we are not interested in His sacrifice moreover, we do not accept it” and “Sin is much too powerful for it to be forgiven or blotted out by anyone being, including the Creator” Some of us do not even have knowledge of being sinful beings. Romans 3:23 Because all people have sinned, they have fallen short of God’s glory. Every single person on the earth has sinned against God. If you’re convinced you have not sinned you’re lying to yourself.
1 John 1:5-10 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. (6) If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: (7) But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. (8) If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. (9) If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (10) If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
If you believe that out of your own strength you can live a holy righteous lifestyle you’re definitely wrong. It is impossible to live holy and righteous without the Holy Spirit of Power. When we confess Jesus as Lord and Savior and cry out for a new life in Him in sincerity, the Holy Spirit of God is then housed in our bodies (temple, house). Our bodies then become temples of the holy spirit and we’re encouraged to live by His word and spirit.
To believe in our hearts that we have need of salvation we have to know that we are in SIN and that Jesus paid the price for it for us. We have to recognize the lack in our life do to dis-fellowship with the Father.
John 3:16-17 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (17) For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
John 3:18-21 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. (19) And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. (20) For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. (21) But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
As the verse said, Jesus did not come into the world to condemn the world. If His assignment was to condemn the world, when He came He would have destroyed the earth and hell would have been the home of those in that time frame. There would be no more Humanity. But He came to save us from the GREATEST DEGREES OF SIN. Jesus took all of our sins into His body at the cross, He suffered greatly and died for us. Genesis 6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
Without the thoughts of God, the goodness of His thoughts toward us in combination with the Holy Spirit in our lives, our thoughts are on evil continually. God thinks good thoughts toward us. He has a HOPE and FUTURE for us but outside of His mercy and grace (unsaved) eternal salvation (life) is hopeless.
Jeremiah 17:9-10 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? (10) I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.
When you enter into a relationship with the heavenly Father, ask Him in prayer to search you heart, you will find very deceitful things that He, in His love want to purge from you’re heart unto righteousness which accomplishes sanctification and holiness. He loves us and wants our hearts pure of ill will and motives. A heart that is diseased cannot function to it’s full potential and it becomes dangerous in that it can damage the whole body.
Seek the Creator pour out you heart to God to save you from eternal separation. Let Him bring light; clarity and understanding into your life. Romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess (declare) with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. (10) For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
