Freedom from Accusation

Are you Innocent or Guilty in the Courtroom of God?

Are you Innocent or Guilty in the Courtroom of God?

Read the following passage in Colossians 1:15-23

He (Christ) is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.

He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.

For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation— if you continue in your faith, established and firm, not moved from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.

The Bible tells us that Satan is “the accuser of the brethren”… meaning that he stands all day “accusing” us before God and even amongst our own selves.

Accusation is defined as ‘leveling charges against someone… or a formal charge of wrongdoing”.

Satan’s job is to be a prosecutor in the courtroom of God… and accuse us of our past wrongdoings and sins before the Almighty Judge. He likes to point the finger at us, telling us where we fell short at… and to convince us to remain in our guilt… and I believe that the guy does a great job at doing that!

But my question to you all is this…. “If God forgives you of your sins, why are you still tripping?”

You see, Jesus is your advocate and your defense lawyer… who has already PAID THE PRICE for your legal defense. He does not collect a retainer from you, but he’s a BETTER lawyer than a thousand Johnny Cochrans & Perry Masons put together!

WHY do we still blame ourselves and stick to our sins… when God tells us that, “… I will remember their sins NO MORE.” (Hebrews 8:12)

The Judge who decides whether you are guilty and deservant of a death sentence (hell), has ALREADY come to a decision that you are INNOCENT… as long as your faith is put in Jesus, your lawyer… and you are free!

You have TOTAL freedom from the past and whatever you did wrong in your life… so walk in the freedom that Christ Jesus gives you. Once you were alienated from God… but through the shed blood of Jesus, we are all reconciled (brought back into a PERFECT relationship) with God… and that’s the final verdict!

Let me know what you think, comments are very much appreciated.  (o:

Jesus Can Reach the Unreachable!

Did you know that it doesn’t matter to Jesus what your past looks like… it doesn’t matter to Him how crazy you acted like back in the day… and it definitely doesn’t matter to Him how much trouble you got into back in the day… AS LONG AS YOU COME TO HIM!

There are many people who I have encountered in life… who love the Lord with all their hearts, and desperately want to be in His good grace… but are mistakenly convinced that their rocky past is so BAD, that it excludes them from the Kingdom of God… and gives them front row seats in the bowels of hell.

They think that because they used to prostitute… or because they used to cheat people… or because they had abortions in the past… or because they used to be a drug pusher…. or because they literally destroyed a loved one emotionally by their actions… that the salvation of Jesus Christ is out of their reach.

But the GOOD NEWS is this…

ALL have sinned… and EVERYBODY has fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23)… but the GIFT of God to you is everlasting life in Christ Jesus (Romans 6:23).

You see friend, a gift (when given in the right way) is given to one person from another… without the expectancy of anything from you.

When Christ died on the cross for all of us… and became the PERFECT sacrifice and replacement for all of our past, present, and future sins… He didn’t expect you to have lived a perfect life. No, perfection was in Him, and in Him alone.

Turn from your past guilt and shame right now… and don’t allow it to shackle you and weigh you down any longer. When you fully 100% come to Christ, you don’t need to wrestle with the guilt of last year… or the shame of your childhood.

There is nothing… and I repeat NOTHING…. that can separate you from the love of God.

There is nothing in this world that you, anybody else, or I could have ever done in life… even at our lowest and darkest moments… that would put us out of the reach of an all-loving & all-forgiving God.

The Bible declares, “If you confess that Jesus is your Lord… and believe that God has raised him from the dead… YOU WILL BE SAVED” (Romans 10:9, 10)

Don’t allow the past to burden or hold you any longer… but put your faith in Jesus, who is still alive & powerful today.

Perhaps this message wasn’t for you… then that’s good. But it IS for someone else that you know… and I URGE you to forward this message to them right now.

Until next time, be blessed… and walk in God’s abundance for your life today.
