The beauty of being justified by Jesus lies in these facts. We are in dire need of being saved. By nature, we are sinful and there is no good thing within us. I know this can be difficult to grasp
Today I wanted to share with you the transcript of Pastor Faith Bosmans’ sermon she gave recently. With her permission, I am so honored to share her words with you here. Spiritual warfare has been plaguing my life recently, and I am ever-voraciously learning about how to use God’s Word and my status as a redeemed by Jesus, daughter of God, Spirit-filled Christian to combat the lies of the Enemy. And I deeply yearn for you to learn, too!
If these lies sting when you read them, then I bet you have felt them, too. Felt them within the very deep parts of your being. Felt them, have heard them, and feel like you are powerless against them.
I’m learning that we have to battle these lies with God’s Truth. We have to battle the Devil’s whisperings with God’s proclamations. We have to battle these thoughts with God’s thoughts. We have to know who we are in Jesus.
I didn’t plant this:
Outside our kitchen window, bordering our white pasture, Wisconsin fence are vines. Vines upon vines of pumpkins and gourds extending among the grass and weeds.
These vines are beginning to bloom and morph into centerpieces and porch adornment. Simple, natural, beautiful, home-grown fall decor.
But, I didn’t plant these.
