STANDING AFAR OFF-3
Luke 17:12 “And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off:”
In order words, those lepers stood afar off because of sin consciousness. Their leprous condition kept telling them they’re unclean and should stay far away from the Master and they did.
Friend, it was because we were far away that Jesus Christ came. He left his glory, wealth and kingdom in order to come and bring us near. He craves so much for fellowship with us and will not want us far off ever again.
When Jesus finished his assignment and was on his way back to heaven, he gave us a special gift. The gift of His Spirit to live inside us so that the communication channel can remain perpetually open, hallelujah!
Don’t ever let the devil use sin consciousness to keep you away from God’s Presence again. Hear this:
Hebrews 4:16 “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”
When next the devil brings back a photograph of past sins into your mind tell him it has been removed as far as the east is from the west. Tell him you’re a new creature and the one who committed those sins has since died!
1John 1:8 “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.”
1John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
Friend, you were forgiven. You have the ability to approach the Father through Jesus Christ without any feeling of guilt. Hear this:
1John 2:1 “My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:”
Beloved, enough of staying away, come close. Come back home like the prodigal son and he will accept you. Pick up courage and return to fellowship, you’ve been forgiven. You’re a beloved of the Father, He loves you more than you can ever comprehend.
Friend, quit the shame and guilt, come home!
Love you BiG
