The Sacrifice Of Himself

 

By the sacrifice
of Himself

He came
to put away sin

and as we
eagerly wait

He will
appear again.

**********

The One who came and will come again, is with me.

**********

“He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.”

“And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgement,”

“so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.”

Hebrews 9:26,27,28. NKJV

Merciful and Faithful

 

He had to be made
like His brethren

in order to be
our merciful High Priest

making propitiation
for our sins

suffering temptation
He gives us relief.

**********

My merciful and faithful High Priest is with me.

**********

“Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be made a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.”

“For in that He Himself has suffered being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.”

Hebrews 2:17,18 NKJV

Psalm 32 Selah

 

I will not keep
my sin from You

but in You I
will hide

confessing all
my wrongs to You

letting forgiveness
inside.

**********

I can pause and be blessed by Your forgiveness, for You are with me.

**********

“Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.”

“I acknowledge my sin to You, and my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, ‘I will confess my transgressions to the LORD; and You forgave the iniquity of my sin’.” Selah

“You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance.” Selah

Pure

 

Keep yourself pure
and without prejudice

as you minister to
women and men

not laying on hands
too hastily

nor joining in
others sin.

**********

You are with me so I can minister with purity.

**********

“I charge you before God and the Lord Jesus Christ and the elect angels that you observe these things without prejudice, doing nothing with partiality.”

“Do not lay hands on anyone hastily, nor share in other people’s sins; keep yourself pure.”

1 Timothy 5:21,22 NKJV

Freed

 

Jesus was raised
from the dead
by the glory of
the Father

so we can walk
in newness of life
freely
ever after.

**********

You are with me and free me from sin.

***********

“Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.”

“For he who has died has been freed from sin.”

“Now if we died with Christ we believe that we shall also live with Him.”

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 6:4,7,8,23. NKJV

My Propitiation

 

We all have sinned
and fallen short

yet You
have made a way

through the blood
of Jesus Christ

by faith
we all have grace.

*********

You are with me and are my propitiation.

*********

“. . .for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,”

“whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed,”

“to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.”

Romans 3:23,24,25,26 NKJV

Seeing

 

Sin wil lead
you deeper

and farther
away from Me

but My Spirit
will draw you closer

where you are meant
to be.

You establish what I see.

” ‘Son of man, do you see what they are doing, the great abominations that the house of Israel commits here, to make Me go far away from My sanctuary?” Ezekiel 8:6 NKJV

Lay Siege

 

Sin will only
lay siege

and waste
to your soul

turn to Me
be redeemed

set free and
let go.

You establish the difference between a life of sin and a life of salvation.

“Moreover He said to me, ‘Son of man, surely I will cut off the supply of bread in Jerusalem; they shall eat bread by weight and with anxiety, and they shall drink water by measure and with dread, that they may lack bread and water, and be dismayed with one another, and waste away because of their iniquity’.”. Ezekiel 4:16. NKJV

When I Don’t Do Well

 

image

“If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door.  And it’s desire is for you, but you should rule over it.”  Genesis 4:7 NKJV

It can be very humbling to not do well, but it is not a sin.

Thank You, Lord, for the humbling times and what You show me in them.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

If I do well
I may be accepted

by my peers
and the like.

If I do not do well
I can be rejected

but never by
my Jesus Christ.

God bless you as you do your best today, whatever that looks like!
