    John answered them, 'I baptize in water, but among you stands one whom you don't know. He is the one who comes after me, who is preferred before me, whose sandal strap I'm not worthy to loosen.' These things were done in Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing. The next day, he saw Jesus...

    As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desir...

    He entered into one of the boats, which was Simon's, and asked him to put out a little from the land. He sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat. When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, 'Put out into the deep, and let down your nets for a catch.' Simon answered him, 'Master, we wor...

The Sin Problem

  • The next day, he saw Jesus coming to him, and said, 'Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!' John 1:29 WEB

    Do you ever feel guilt or shame over something in your past? Is there something haunting you and saying, 'God is mad at you because'' or 'You are not worthy to do this?' That is the enemy trying to immobilize you and keep you from doing God's will. That is what he does, he accuses us day and night and reminds us of our past (Rev. 12:10).

    The enemy cannot stop God from fulfilling His plans for you, but through fear and shame, he can certainly stop you from stepping out to begin with. If you never begin the journey, how can you arrive at the destination? It is a simple but effective plan, and it kept eleven disciples in the boat while Peter walked on the water (Matt. 14:29).

    The past is gone and we cannot change it. When you fall, get back up as soon as you can and try again. When a past mistake comes to mind, repent of it immediately and ask for forgiveness. When someone that has hurt you comes to mind, forgive them again. This will take away his ammunition.

    Jesus dealt with the sin problem once and for all and no sacrifice that you make will improve on what He has already done for you. He took away the sin of the world, we only have to ask for God to forgive us and He will. Do not waste another second of your life. Your sin was already paid for along with everyone else's! We try to live right because He loves us, not to make Him love us.

    Prayer: Father, I look to You today for help, for provision, for protection. All that I have came from You, even the air that I breathe. Forgive me of my sins and help me to walk steadfast. Let me carry Your presence with me today, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Sharon Peterson Galations 5:1 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery Romans 8:3 NIV   3 For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh,

Carol Pady
Carol Pady Amen! We have obtained forgiveness through Christ. God ordained it and we must claim it. Although the enemy accuses us God will not condemn us. It is finished thanks to Jesus. We are God's elect, we are His chosen, His children and we are coverec by His grace , our sin was erased by the Savior's blood. We may be tormenetd by satan but our soul's belong to God!

Kath Paro
Kath Paro Dion~ How did you read my history and current thoughts so accurately?  This struck me right where it needed to, I kept replaying my sins and things I thought I did wrong.  Now I realize God has forgiven my sins through the sacrifice of His son.  Who am I to hang on to them?  I have forgiven myself and those of my past for what I think are sins.  Bless you and I thank you again for giving me what I need to hear each day.

Janet Marsh-Lord
Janet Marsh-Lord  Thank you for this message Pastor Dion. I had an unsettling conversation the other day with a person who wanted to know all about a time in my past that I had given to God and was trying to forget. I was quite open and gullible and just told her what she asked until I realised there was an ulterior motive on her part and then I clammed up. I felt like I'd been attacked and later asked for advice and prayer from some dear friends.The next day I had a little speech all prepared for this person and a  few Biblical verses. But before I had a chance to use them she came to me and begged my forgiveness....and apologised profusely.. I felt prepared for the worst but God gave me HIs best...Thank you Lord for answered prayer.
