This Nonsense Must Stop

Inspired by a billboard for a campaign at a church in Ghana - This Nonsense Must Stop! What nonsense is there in my life that must stop?

God wants us to prosper, be in health and to enjoy life in its abundance. 

I however read in God's Word that the wicked, the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God (I Corinthians 6:9-11, Galatians 5:19-21).

I have read that to be carnally minded is death because the carnal mind is enmity against God so then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God (Romans 8:6-8) and that the one who sows to please his sinful nature will from that nature reap destruction (Galatians 6:8).

And this nonsense must stop! The scriptures say “He who sins is of the devil…” (I John 3:8a). 

The real mission of Christ is to save His people from their sins. The Lord is coming back for a glorious church without spots or wrinkles or any such blemish (Ephesians. 5:27). He is coming back for a church that has attained the full measure of the stature of Christ (Ephesians. 4:13).

After Jesus fed the 5000 the Bible tells us he withdrew again to the mountain by himself. And he said to them, ”Truly, truly, I say to you, you are seeking me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate your fill of the loaves. Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you.

The Old Testament thunders, “Repent, and turn from all your transgressions, so that iniquity will not be your ruin” (Ezekiel 18:30, NKJV).
The New Testament exhorts men and women to repent.  “Unless you repent you will all likewise perish,” said Jesus (Luke 13:3, NKJV). 
“Repent … and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out,” said Peter (Acts 3:19, NKJV).
Paul said, “Now [God] commands all men everywhere to repent” (Acts 17:30, NKJV). The divine message is still valid: “God commands all men everywhere to repent.”

What is repentance? Notice first what it is not. First, repentance is not penance. Second, repentance is not remorse. Third, repentance is not self-condemnation. 

The Bible says, “There will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance” (Luke 15:7) There are three elements in genuine repentance. First, there is conviction.  

The second element is contrition. The Bible says, “The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as have a contrite spirit” (Psalm 34:18) Contrition, or “godly sorrow,” as it is called in 2 Corinthians 7:10, is not a shallow sentiment nor empty emotion. Peter, meant well and erred often, when he denied his Lord “went out and wept bitterly” (Matthew 26:75). 

Third, repentance carries with it the idea of changing–changing your mind, changing your attitude, changing your ways. The Bible says, “For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation” (2 Corinthians 7:10, NKJV). 

There is hope, but it is only in God. “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.” (Acts 3:19) This is God’s promise!
Devotional prayer meeting Tuesdays at 9.00am in the Group Room.
If you have had personal experience of domestic abuse, Jubilee House would like to welcome you to sign up for the Freedom Programme, facilitated by Lynn Smillie, founding Director of No Feart, a Community Interest Company set up to help address the issue of domestic violence.

The Freedom Programme has been successful in providing domestic abuse education, awareness, and information to help stop the cycle of domestic violence and abuse in people's lives. The course examines the roles played by attitudes and beliefs on the actions of abusive men and the responses of victims and survivors. The aim is to help them to make sense of, and understand what has happened to them instead of the whole experience just feeling like a horrible mess.

Course Participants often report they have experienced new found strength within themselves to ‘stop the cycle’ of abuse towards themselves and their children. They have went on to live free from abuse, improved mental wellbeing and formed healthy relationships.

The course is completely FREE for survivors of domestic violence and abuse to attend. Each course runs for approximately 12 weeks, and lasts for around 2 hours in length with tea and coffee provided.

The first course will run every Thursday in Paisley starting 14th November at 1pm. For further details email Lynn Smillie at info@nofeart.org or phone 07706754817
Worship evening this Thursday 28th November. Coffee in the Mossy from 7pm followed by worship in the sanctuary.
