On this episode of the Innocence Redeemed podcast I will be talking about how we are made right by our faith in Jesus Christ and not by trying to keep the law or the ‘just stop it’ mentality which helps nobody overcome their sinful desires. Many give up when first trying because the promise of salvation is never thoroughly explained to them in one sitting, therefore they find it next to near impossible to give up their sin when they call on the Lord and often end up succumbing to self-defeat. No my friends, only when you invite Jesus into your heart and fill your daily life with His Word and prayer is He established within you which strengthens you to where the sin is no longer desired. In this podcast I hope to put this question to rest, that you are saved by God’s grace when He sent Jesus to shed His blood on the cross -Not by trying to walk on eggshells to keep the law.
Proverbs 3:27-28 (NLT)
27 Do not withhold good from those who deserve it when it’s in your power to help them.
28 If you can help your neighbor now, don’t say,
“Come back tomorrow, and then I’ll help you.”
1 Peter 4:8 (NLT)
8 Most important of all, continue to show deep love [charity] for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins.
1 Peter 5:8 (NLT)
8 Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.
Matthew 7:12, 20-23 (NLT)
12 “Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets.
20 Yes, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit, so you can identify people by their actions.
21 “Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. 22 On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.’ 23 But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws.’
2 Corinthians 5:10 (NLT)
For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body.
