Are you just a sinner who has been forgiven? Do you have 2 natures inside you—one bad, one good—constantly at war? Do you feel you are constantly feeding that 'big dog' of sin? We are no longer slaves! The old man has been crucified. And Christ IS our life, not just IN our life. Dig into this transforming truth.
Two More Attributes of Kingship: Power and Pardon. Jesus exhibited power over defilement, distance, disease, over the sea and the wind, over demons, over death, over blindness, over muteness. A king can also withhold His power.
He also exercised true deity in pardoning sinners. Likewise, You and I were once criminals. Have you received His pardon? Just gotta ask. Are you happy that He has pardoned that prickly neighbor of yours? I hope so. Often not.
I’ve got news for you. Jesus didn’t come to take political sides, He came to take over!
~Jesus isn’t part of a political platform. He isn’t an allowed activity by govt. Gov doesn’t give Him permission to be worshipped. Jesus isn’t one of your civil rights! He came to take over!
~He didn’t come to be ‘one of many ways’ to spiritual enlightenment. He came to take over!
~Jesus didn’t come to be an activity on Sunday mornings for you. He came to take over!
