Because of Jesus

Because of Jesus.....our sins can be pardoned. Admit all wrong and wicked thoughts, words and deeds (yes, we all do them) to God and ask for forgiveness through His Son, Jesus Christ. Isaiah chapter 59 verse 2 says "It is your sins that separate you from God...so that He will not hear you". Then see Romans chapter 3 verses 23-24: "Everyone has sinned and is far away from God's saving presence. But by the free gift of God's grace all are put right with Him through Jesus Christ, who sets them free".
Because of Jesus.....we can have fellowship with God as His sons and daughters and talk to Him any time in prayer. In other words, we can be friends! Psalm 25 verse 14 says "The Lord is the friend of those who obey Him". In Romans chapter 5 verses 9-10 we read "By His blood (being crucified) we are now put right with God. We were God's enemies, but He made us His friends through the death of His Son". See also the same message in 2 Corinthians chapter 5 verses 17 to 19.
Because of Jesus.....we can experience the presence of the Holy Spirit within our very being. God's Spirit comes to dwell in us the moment we receive Jesus as our Lord and Saviour. After His resurrection and ascension to heaven, His followers were "baptised with the Holy Spirit". It meant that Jesus was still with them, helping and encouraging them, for always. The Spirit is called the "promised gift"!
Remember the "Three Fs"...FORGIVEN, FRIENDSHIP, FILLED (with the Holy Spirit).
