Love you all, praying for you,
I just love God’s Word. It tells you what God has for you. Three words were used in the Bible several times. Where it pertained to God and man, two powerful occurrences change life forever. How Much More! That means way more, no comparison, ridiculously more, infinitely more! Here is the first one. Luke 11:13 - If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more – will your father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him. Do you need power? To overcome sin, to obey what God told you, to walk in the plans He has for you? God thinks so, that’s why Jesus told his followers to wait in Jerusalem until they received power from on high. Power to do what He is calling them to do. Power to live life supernaturally, not naturally. Power to overcome the sin nature, power to choose the grace that is theirs, not forfeit the grace that could be theirs. Power to know things to come, to understand God’s Word, His will and His way. How much more will your Father in Heaven, give His Holy Spirit to you, if you ask. Praying that you will be filled with His Spirit, it’s the power you need, it’s grace to do all that He has for you. It is so good. Another occurrence of these three powerful words. Was in Romans 5:12-21. Paul was talking about Adam’s sin. One sin, that brought sin to everybody in the world. We were born in it, every person since Adam’s one sin. That one sin led to the law of sin, that controls every human being - all of them, their entire life. The law of sin is a powerful one. But there is one more powerful. How Much More powerful (infinitely more) is the law of righteousness that God says – now controls you. (By grace, through faith). If you have given your life to Jesus, and been filled with His Spirit. His Holy Spirit, His Grace - that law of righteousness that Jesus death and resurrection gave you - is much more powerful than the law of sin that once controlled you. Have you ever noticed how powerful the law of sin is… it keeps people bound for years, decades, even a lifetime, if they are without Christ. But This new law, the law of righteousness is far more powerful, than the old law of sin. How much more! In fact Paul explains it like this. If one sin, Adam’s sin, brought the law of sin, the control of sin over all… How much more, will Jesus death for every sin ever committed, bring the law of righteousness, the control of righteousness to all who receive Him. If one sin controls the world with sin, how much more – will every sin ever – now fully forgiven, be a new law of righteousness, that controls you far more than the law of sin once did. Most people are still controlled by the law of sin. You can be saved, and have that grace to overcome it, but it still overcomes you. If you don’t choose the grace that is yours, you could forfeit the grace that could be yours. Most people think the law if sin is more powerful. But the law of righteousness that now controls you is way more powerful. Like a zillion sins forgiven – to one sin committed – more powerful. God said how much more! That’s a powerful truth, Which word do you believe? Which law do you surrender to, submit to? Which law controls you? The law of sin, or the far more powerful law or righteousness? God said if your mind is set on the things below, things of the flesh, things of the flesh - you will be controlled by law of sin, through the sin nature. But if your mind is set on things above, then you will be controlled by the law of righteousness through the Holy Spirit of righteousness, that you can receive and have full access to. Way more powerful. Praying that you’ll choose grace by faith, that you will know How much more – the law of righteousness now controls you – than the law of sin ever did. If you’ve ever been bound, you know how strong that is. But how much more – is the new law that if you just submit to it, instead of your members to the other one. You will have so much more power – than that old law ever was. That’s your secret weapon the law of righteous by the Spirit of God. Praying that you will walk in that, that you’ll set your mind on things above, that you’ll choose grace by faith - every time. To overcome! It’s the new law of righteousness that now controls you!
