Thus speaketh the LORD of Hosts, saying, Execute true judgment, and shew mercy and compassions every man to his brother: And oppress not the widow, nor the fatherless, the stranger, nor the poor; and let none of you imagine evil against his brother in your heart. But they refused to hearken, and pulled away the shoulder, and stopped their ears, that they should not hear. Yea, they made their hearts as an adamant stone, lest they should hear the Law, and the words which the LORD of Hosts hath sent in His Spirit by the former prophets: therefore came a great wrath from the LORD of Hosts. (Zechariah 7:9-12)
Only through being born again following repentance, complete surrender to GOD on His terms, can we even have the capacity to live without sIn. His Spirit revives us and we live, abundant and free from the power and penalty of sIn, in this life and the next when even the presence of sIn will be removed.
GOD calls everyone everywhere to repent and be redeemed by faith in Jesus Christ and His finished work on the Cross of Calvary. Without His salvation we are lost and men most miserable, strangers from GOD and at war with Him. He calls you to Himself. He desires a relationship with you based on love not wrath. Respond to Him today.
If you are already one of His, live for Him and share the Good News to others you meet.
