Grace Works Better Than Repentance

After seeing yet another post on Facebook displaying someone’s frustration of sin in the lives of believers, I decided to try and nail down God’s prescription for setting us free from sin, in contrast to what is usually taught in church. God wants all believer free, but we have never been successful when we take on the responsibility ourselves. Watch now and see how simple God’s plan is, and how easy it is to step into it.

How to Encounter God Every Day

Most Christians go from visitation to visitation with lulls of the Spirit in between, but that is not necessary. From God’s perspective, He is waiting for us to be in a position of openness.

Here is God’s perspective.
13 Then little children were brought to Him that He might put His hands on them and pray, but the disciples rebuked them.  14 But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”  15 And He laid His hands on them and departed from there. (Matthew 19:13-15)

God is always ready to lay His hands on you and release the blessing.

The biggest hindrance to you experiencing His presence in your life, is what you think about God’s love for you. God always comes when you say ‘yes’ to His love. He is always ready to pour His love. He is waiting even now to love on you. He is always waiting and ready.

20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. (Revelation 3:20)

God’s love is constant, He does not reject us nor get frustrated with us. He is constantly drawing us toward releasing His image; helping us grow in faith; encouraging us to laydown our fears and display love to others. He even holds us every time we need it and will allow Him to hold us. He will never reject us.

35 And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.  37 All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out. (John 6:35, 37)

He wants to be our source for love and empower us to become His expression of love to others. He wants to help us bear His image.

32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? (Romans 8:32)

You were created for intimacy with God. He considers it a privilege to love on you. He is always ready to give you His presence. If you desire an encounter with God today, the only requirement is that you believe that He loves you enough to come and spend time with you. The more you engage the Spirit, the more you will sense His love. He is always ready to pour out His love on you. He considers you His precious child. He cares for every part of your life and will make you an overcomer if you allow Him to minister to you. The choice has always been yours to make. As soon as you open your heart to Him, He will come and give you the amount of love you are open to receive.

The fullness of salvation

Every time we sin, the blood of Jesus pays the price to remove it. There is nothing that God requires of us except that we come to Him and confess it, 1 John 1:9.

The death of Christ crucifies the sin nature for us. This is often not received because we believe that we are still a failure and that it is impossible to ever measure up to God’s standards. We need to come to Him and let Him show us that sin is separated from us now and is not a part of our identity, Romans 7:17.

The resurrection of Christ gives us access to the devine nature of God. Most Christian’s don’t access this because they believe that they are still stuck with the old nature. But once God has shown us that we are not sinners saved by grace (rather we are now saints who still have the potential to give into temptation), then we can come to God without fear of rejection.

All whom My Father gives (entrusts) to Me will come to Me;
and the one who comes to Me I will most certainly not cast out [I will never, no
never, reject one of them who comes to Me].
(John 6:37 AMP)

So how do we access the resurrection?
This new life is poured out by the Spirit and is gained when we spend time with God, specifically when we hear Him speak to us. The Lord told me that every time we hear Him speak to us, He rubs more of His devine nature on us.

Sanctify them [purify, consecrate, separate them for
Yourself, make them holy] by the Truth; Your Word is Truth.
(John 17:17 AMP)

And I give myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy by your truth. (John 17:19 NLT)

The only way to deal with the flesh is through a life style of listening to God. The Holy Spirit is the teacher who will leads and guides us into all truth, even holiness, sonship, and the love of God.

If, when we were at our worst, we were put on friendly terms with God by the sacrificial death of his Son, now that we’re at our best, just think of how our lives will expand and deepen by means of his resurrection life! (Romans 5:10 MSG)
