The problem in my life is not somebody else. The problem in my life is me. It is what is in my heart that comes out of my mouth that causes my problems.
The answer is not to try to change or remove the other person. The answer is to change me, for my heart to be changed by the power of God in Christ.
As I walk with another person my heart is exposed through conflict. If I will humble myself and continue to repent and forgive and love God and that person,
I will be changed and so will they.
Isaiah 53:6, All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
We can be changed because our iniquities were laid on Jesus, on the cross, where he loved us and washed us from our sins in his own blood. As we continue to repent and believe what He did for us we will be delivered from the evil that is in us and we will overcome the evil around us. 1John 1:7-10, 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 cleanses us from all sin. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Not only will the sins we have committed be forgiven, but we will be cleansed from the iniquity in our heart that brought them about. As we continue doing his Word, being taught by the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, we will truly be Jesus' disciples, we will know the truth, and the truth will make us free.
We must be patient and not be ashamed as the Lord continues to work in us and others. Be of good cheer for he is with us. Nothing is too hard for him.
Repent and Believe the Gospel!
REPENT AND BELIEVE THE GOSPEL!Jesus said,"The time is fullfilled and the Kingdom of God is at hand, repent and believe the Gospel" The Gospel is that the Word of God became a man; Jesus, the only begotten of the Father, the Son of God, full of grace and truth, and lived in this world with every temptation that you and I face, and yet He never sinned and He gave himself to die on the cross and shed His blood for our sins. God made Him who knew no sin to become sin on our behalf that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. He was buried in a tomb, and on the third day the Father raised Him from the dead. He was seen of above 500 witnesses after He arose and He ascended to the right hand of the Father in heaven. He is there right now, alive, making intercession on our behalf to the Father. He is coming again with all the saints and all the angels in great power and glory and all who live and believe in him will be united with him and thus will we ever be with the Lord. I urge you to seek Him now, during this time while the long suffering of God is waiting, for the Day of the Lord is coming soon. He loves you and He will save you to the utter most if you will put your trust in Him.
