Trust God




To be converted is not just to repent of your sin and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, but in addition, turning away from all ungodliness. 

In Romans 11, the bible talks about a deliverer coming from Zion - from within the Jews, who shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob.  That deliverer is Jesus Christ.  It is expected that upon receiving Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, we should gladly turn away from all ungodliness, after all, darkness and light have nothing in common. 

But what do we have today, many people in the church who find it difficult to change from their old ways into the ways of the Lord.  This is due primarily because the WORD OF GOD AND HIS SPIRIT, which births a believer into the family of Christ has not taken root in such a life.

It happens partly because of peoples old believes, deep connection with the world, and deceitfulness of riches. When a person repents and be converted, his sins are blotted out - Acts 3:19  

For such a converted soul, the church looking at the outward manifestation of godly behaviour may not even consider him or her godly and we should not be surprised because men are not able to read the heart, so they depend on outward manifestation of faith in God and commitment to the Church, participating in most church programs, paying tithe and offering, soul winning outreaches etc.

But God, who knows the heart, accepts us if we have faith in the atoning work of Christ, even if we are not able to meet the physical requirements of full commitment to the church as others. Even if we do not meet the church's standards of fellowship, refreshment will still come to us from the presence of the Lord.

The following are the benefits of Conversion to a believer:

1.  Your sins are blotted out - And a time of refreshment shall come from the presence of the Lord - Acts 3:19

2.  Your sins are forgiven and prayers answered -  If you will humble yourself, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from your wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land - 2 Chron 7:14

3. Because you turn from your evil ways, you shall live, says the Lord - Because he considereth, and turneth away from all his transgressions that he hath committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die.
Ezek 18:28-32

4. The Lord will repent of the evil plans He had against you: - If so be they will hearken, and turn every man from his evil way, that I may repent me of the evil, which I purpose to do unto them because of the evil of their doings - Jeremiah 26:3

5.  The Lord will prosper your works - And thou shalt return and obey the voice of the Lord, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day.  And the Lord thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the Lord will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy father - Deut 30:8-9

Friends, Jesus is coming soon. Repent  for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Believe the word of God and His Son Jesus Christ, and accept Him as Lord and Saviour of your life.  He will give you a new life, victory and eternal life.
Will you accept Him today?

Say this Prayer: 
Lord Jesus I come to you as a sinner.
I am sorry for my sins, forgive me.
I believe you died for my sins, and was raised for my justification. 
Come into my heart be my Lord and Saviour, 
Give me the grace to serve You in truth and spirit. 
Thank You for saving my soul - I am born again!

His grace be with you all.
