Psalm 139:23-24Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: 24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. (KJV)

 

If you are a Christian…and you truly want to become a disciple of Christ…you have to abide in God’s Word… Jesus tells us this, in…

 

John 8:31-32Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (NKJV)

Abiding in God’s Word means that you spend time reading and digesting God’s Word (hopefully daily – Matthew 4:4), to do your best to understand and to follow all of the scripture that God gives us in His inerrant Word, to guide our lives… It is only through our abiding in the Word, that we as Christian’s will be equipped for any and all life throws our way …  We see this very clearly in…

 

2 Timothy 3:16-17…  All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.  (NKJV)

 

A good start to living for the Lord, would be to do as David did in the opening scripture… Get down on your knees and ask God to search your heart…   God promises to hear any prayers that are in His will for us, in…1 John 5:14…  So be ready with open ears for God’s response…  And when God reveals your un-confessed sins (both known and hidden), you must confess them…repent of them…and turn from them…

 

1 John 1:9  If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.  (NKJV)

 

Once you are walking in the Spirit (Galatians 5:16), Jesus tells us this, in John 8:32 above…  “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

 

For the believer, being set free, means that God’s grace will free you from the bonds of sin, shame, and fear that Satan uses, to keep you from sharing your love of Christ with those around you in need of also being set free…  But for the un-believer to be set free from Satan’s chains for an eternity… they need to hear, understand, and then obey the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ… 

See the link below for a presentation of the message of the cross…which explains how to receive God’s grace through saving faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ…  

Once all of your sins have been confessed…to cleanse us from all unrighteousness”…you, as a Spirit filled Christian (Ephesians 5:18-20), you should be bursting at the seams to share your faith…EVERY time the Holy Spirit places someone in front of you, and urges you to share the “good news” message of the cross which the Gospel of Christ presents…

 

Only after receiving God’s grace, will one be set free from Satan’s chains… And by walking in the Spirit (Galatians 5:16), you will truly be set free to live your live for Christ, and to be blessed beyond belief when you are walking in sweet fellowship with the Lord…

 

Blessings in Christ, bruce
