God’s steward. Don’t get in the adjectival weeds.
I have received the Spirit of Adoption, therefore, I am a Child of God, Daughter of The King, an adjective that will last for Eternal Life In Jesus Name.
Let’s not act like anything, Lord I much rather You expose our hearts of deceit and sin, that in reality we love ourselves more than You and others, which is Sin. It’s like saying “do you want fake peace or do you want the peace of Christ?” They are 2 totally opposite of each other. Let’s not pretend, Lord expose our reality apart from Christ, give the people what they want, and in doing so, the reality, depths of our depravity will be exposed for the purpose of You picking them up from rubble they cause (You Allowed) and You Reveal Your mercy through the power of Your Spirit, so that they might repent and turn from their wicked ways. Who turns from their wicked ways if they don’t know they are wicked? This is Your Work Lord. Bring it to fruition and ultimate completion in Jesus Name.
The wages of sin is death but The gift of God is Eternal Life in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior.
It is most important to clear up a matter of our natural thinking… so in my prayer time with the Lord, I’ll share what He reminded me, we must remember the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal Life in Christ Jesus our Lord. The debt has been paid In Christ Alone, we could never pay the debt, its been paid. As far as the east is from the west so far has our transgressions been removed. We must know that our debt was important enough for God to pour out His wrath on His Son, Our Savior. In doing that we are saved from God’s Wrath for all eternity, the moment His Spirit enlightened us to believe In Jesus Name. So when we meet God we will give an account for the righteous acts He enabled us to do (because those aren’t ours either), receiving a 👑 crown that we will lay at His feet. But His wrath will be on those who have not believed and His wrath will be on them for all eternal damnation. The believer will not have to give an account for their sins, because the debt has been paid and Jesus is enough (otherwise what’s the point of Christ Jesus?), this is the relentless mercy and unfailing love that He decided to offer us. This Truth once understood brings us to our knees in humble adoration of God Our Creator Who could have left us as sinners, separated from Him forever, but He created us and knew He would redeem us, His People for His Namesake, kept by His Power for the day of Redemption. “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect Will of God.” Romans 12:2 In Christ, Our posture is Continually “Rejoicing Always, Praying Continually and Giving Thanks in All Circumstances for this is His Will for us in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
I know personally of a man who for over 50 years pretended he was good, until The Lord revealed the oppressed depths of the sin in his heart, although The Lord revealed and exposed his reality, he still walked his own way, deciding its his life and this is what makes him happy. I know a woman (me personally) who pretended I was good for 33 years, until The Lord revealed the oppressed depths of the sin in my heart, The Lord revealed and exposed it and I heard Him say follow me, so I did. Grace was given to me that day and allowed me to realize He had given grace to me everyday of my life, only now He gave me His Spirit and His Heart so that I could Thank Him, confess my need, repent (reject my own way and turn) and praise Him.
1 John 1:9 “if we confess our sins, He is faithful to forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
