Description
How do you know if you're operating in real wisdom or wisdom that comes from below?
after the family presents food for thought with Pastor kevin and Vicki repeat after me say Lord jesus, I ask you to speak to my life that you administered to my heart, May your word be revealed to me today in a way that I will understand it so that I can speak it and do it. And she had changed my life, play this in jesus name, I mean, so we're continuing with our series of Wise man once said and obviously last week we, we looked at that documentary, I want my six pack and I just wanted to start off there because today we're talking about the fact that there is a battle of the heart. Now when I sat down with the guys that are in my cell group, one of the things that they were sharing was how many of them related to that whole thing about the transgender issue, to their own sin, to their own lives, where they thought if they did some sinful thing or some thing where they need to compromise or whatever, that they're going to be happy and then they would do the thing and then find out that made things worse.

And so what I want you to realize in terms of that video, the reason why it was so powerful was, well, first of all, it was incredible for me that a video like that and a documentary like that got produced on Russian television, I promise you now, when I was growing up, the old soviet union used to persecute the church and now we've got Russian television producing what looked like a christian documentary that they broadcast on their own platform and and the incredible thing was they just brought out people's testimonies. And all three of those people are people that have found the Lord jesus christ and it doesn't matter what the Sunnis, it can even be the sin of greed or something like that. You know, the story is always going to be the same for someone who finds jesus. And this is what's so important for you to understand everything in our faith is about a battle for the heart. And and you know, you can go and change your anatomy. You can cut things or slice things or do whatever you want. You can go and smoke things or inject things. You know, all these things that people are doing for recreation.

You can go and drink things. You can go and jump off things. You know, people jump off things these days for fun. You can become a fireman or a five women. You know what I'm saying because maybe you think fighting fires is going to just do it for you or something like that. You know, whatever you whatever you you want to do. All right, it's not going to bring you to the place you want to be unless you find the Lord himself and understand this. There's a battle for the heart and Proverbs four verse 23 says this, keep your heart with all diligence for out of its spring. The issues of life. Now, I want you to think about what this is saying. A spring is the source of a river. A river starts with a spring that maybe some water is coming out the ground or something like that. And so in terms of your life, the spring of your life, the source of your life is your heart. Your heart is gonna take you wherever you're gonna go. Your heart is going to determine your destiny. I want to warn you that this is one of the verses in the bible. When I look at the bible and I look at people that proves to me that the bible is the word of God, because the heart speaks about motive and everything.

In terms of your heart comes out there and the hart informs wisdom, wisdom informs knowledge informs things you here, which in turn affects your heart. Now, I want you to think about this term wisdom. You know, people are after wisdom in all sorts of ways. And many, many people talk about wisdom as being something that if you find wisdom, you find everything. But I want to tell you here this morning, there is the wrong kind of wisdom. Not all wisdom is good. And I want to take you to the book of James. The letter that James wrote James, chapter three verse 13 to 17. And you know, the one time I heard a preacher named Andy Stanley, he was preaching from the book of James and he said James is one of the reasons why he came to believe that the bible is true because James was the brother of jesus. So I want you to understand this. James was the brother of Jesus, he was jesus brother. He grew up with Jesus, Jesus was his big brother, and James later on comes and he says Jesus is God?

How many of you realize that if your brother or sister to tell people your God, you might just be good because I don't know about you. But the last people that are going to call you God is your brother or a sister or a husband or a wife or your Children. And yet he said Jesus was God. And if you read in the gospel of john, his brothers were against him. Now, this same. James says this in James chapter three verse 13 to 17, Who is wise and understanding among you? That's a good question, isn't it? Who is wise and understanding among you, then he says, let him show by good conduct that his works are done in meat, in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter envy and self seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly essential, demonic. Now I want you to listen to me, he's talking to christians and I want to tell you that the wisdom that you have can come from somewhere other than heaven, it can be earthly, it can be essential, which means it's the census or even demonic there it is in the bible.

Your wisdom as a christian could be this demonic, that's what he is, warning us here today and universe 16, he says for where envy and self seeking exists, confusion and everything evil thing are there. But wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield full of mercy and good fruits without partiality and without hypocrisy. Now, even whatever issues you're talking about, whether you're talking health issues where you're talking political issues, family issues, whatever issues you're talking about. What James says is that wisdom that is from heaven is without partiality. If you're partial, that means you're on the one side and then inevitably you'll be a hypocrite. If you have the wisdom of God, people might be able to call your hip pocket, but it won't be true. But as the important thing, wisdom either comes from above, it comes from heaven or it comes from below, which is earth or even below the earth and wisdom from below is also wisdom notice it's not the one is wisdom and others not wisdom, both or wisdom just the wisdom that is from below is inferior.

Now, if you look at that passage, he talks about the wisdom that is from below. The wisdom that is from below where certain types of fruit it is fruits like envy and jealousy and self promotion and some other things that he mentions, I want you just to think about that for a second. You see I could even be standing here preaching and if I'm preaching in such a way that I'm promoting myself, I'm operating in wisdom that is from below because that self promotion is actually a fruit of what's actually going on. But the other thing that this passage says, it speaks about the result of wisdom that is from below. It results in disorder. I look at our world today again, not to get political or anything, but has anyone seen what's going on in Afghanistan? Mhm mm They call they call people who speak about what Islam is and what Islam preaches as being islamophobes and they call the taliban radicals they are radical.

They radically follow what mama did. But look at the disorder in the world, look at the chaos around the world and wisdom that is from below is still wisdom. Now, I want you to think about jealousy and envy and self promotion and all of these things that come with wisdom that is from below. I want you to think about what it comes out of these things come out of human reasoning when when you've got jealousy and envy and self promotion and and all of these sorts of things going on. It comes out of your own human reasoning and and here's the problem with it. It makes sense to the human mind when you're thinking about it, in your mind, that makes sense. It is justifiable to your mind. It is justifiable to your reasoning. You can be as jealous as everything as anything. And at the end of the day your mind will reason it and it will seem justifiable to you. You can envy what other people have and your mind can reason it.

How many times do people hate other people because of what they have? I want to tell you, you take that out of South Africa. You are a fantastic place. But we reason it. Have you noticed when people start reasoning then everyone's a victim and when everyone's a victim, then I want to victor. And if you've got a nation full of people that feel like they're losing, you got a problem you've got a recipe for for violence and war wisdom that is from below appeals to the logic of the un renewed mind. Our minds are supposed to be renewed every single day. And so we've got people walking around with all of these thoughts, all of these attributes described there in the spaces from James and they believe that it's justifiable. I'm justifiably angry. I'm justifiably envious. I'm justifiably promoting myself because I'm a good person, a jealous person ever think so jealous.

And here's the problem when you're jealous suspicion hides itself in your mind. You've got these jealous thoughts over here, but behind them is this suspicious hot where you just don't trust people. And here's the thing about being suspicious, You know what believers call it? Believe it. So that's discernment. I want you to realize something. The devil comes in very subtle ways with this stuff and he nails us to the wall. Let me put it to you this way. I mean, if you're sending sexually, you know, you're sitting if you're cheating on your spouse or your cheating on your boyfriend or girlfriend, whatever it may be, you know, you're cheating when you're lying saying you never stole something, you know, you stole, which, you know, is wrong and you know, you're lying, you know, you're doing it. But when you're jealous sometimes you think you're spiritual and you are deceived. And that's why things like this and pride are far more dangerous. Since in many ways than these things we might do physically, the sins of our motives are a big danger to us.

And it's a big danger because it can lead us to a place where we have a spirit of entitlement, and the spirit of entitlement comes out of jealousy and it hides there. And then also it hides itself and it coats itself in a need for justice Any time we're talking about justice, any time we're saying that justice must be done. We need to be careful that there's not a spirit of entitlement there and what is the entitlement says, It says, I believe I deserve it. I believe justice must happen. I believe we must have justice. I have a right to do something. You know, I have a right to be happy for once. Have you ever heard people saying that for once, I put myself first, I like that. People always like to say, you know, for once, I've been putting myself out there for others or my life for once I need to put myself first, you know, please man, if any of us come and say that we are talking the biggest load of hogwash and most of us have said it, if not all of us, I think if I had to ask everyone to raise their hands, you said that you have those who are telling the truth and raise their hands.

Those who keep the hands down on the line, I'm not gonna ask you to raise your hands. I don't want you to allow not in church, but this is this is a spirit of entitlement. And this thing leads to misapplied justice. Okay, we we we misapplying the concept of justice and I want you to think what comes out of it. What comes out of that is criticism and where we're saying things about others that are not fair, but misapply justice is often the birthplace of entitlement in a believer's mind, you know, even in church, you could be thinking you have something or you have an opportunity. I should have had think about how many things can come out of it. Whether you're talking within the church setting, you're talking within the political setting of the nation, the economic situation, the educational situation, you've got to every sphere of life. We can we can cloak this spirit of entitlement in a demand for justice and that results in statements like it's not fair.

You know, we need to make everything fair and misapply, justice leads to jealousy. Misapply justice leads to envy. It leads to covetousness and ultimately it leads to war and war kills and didn't God say thou shalt not kill the wisdom that is not from above, but from below is a wisdom that often has an appeal to the intellect. It has appeal to the mind, it has an appeal to our desire for justice because we all want justice. I know we were all people who desire justice and justice is important. In fact, justice is vital for the kingdom. And that's why it's so important that by the blood of jesus, we are justified because the only way that we can intend to heaven is if we are justified in other words, if justice has been done for our sins, if our sins have been punished, we can get into heaven and thank God, they were punished on the body of jesus and not on our bodies.

I mean, come on, give the Lord the biggest shot of pressure for that today. Amen. We demand justice. But if we got justice. Oh my word all literally all hell will break loose in our lives. We'll find ourselves squarely inhale. So justice is vital for the kingdom because the foundation of God's throne is righteousness and justice. So you say you desire justice. Yeah, Really? Are you sure? You know so many times, even as a church, we desire justice. We desire justice for this one. We desire justice for that one. We desire justice for the next one. Social justice, welfare justice. All sorts of justice, justice everywhere. In fact, we should just all of us start calling ourselves justice because we're just so good. We're so humanitarian. We just people that give everything for justice. And then the question I have to ask you is you are you sure you're fighting for justice? I want to I want to challenge you. Please don't tell me you're fighting for justice.

If you don't fight for the unborn, I want to say that to you again. Please don't tell me that you're fighting for justice. If you don't fight for the unborn, I want you to think right now all of these things with Covid and everything we're fighting to save lives. But how many lives are we killing every single day? How many are dying in our nation every day and they have no voice. There's no one that speaking for them, you cannot create a reason for this. Now again, I want to say any woman that's been through the abortion process. She's already paid a price. I'm telling you now on the inside of her. She's already paid the price and the blood of jesus is available for you because everyone is equally guilty of the murder of that child. Not just you you are guilty of the murder of unborn Children long before you had an abortion. The blood of our arm bone is crying out from the ground. I'm telling you now it's a very big deal to God. It's a very big deal that we don't speak about it. And we like to talk about justice. But imagine if that had happened to us that we were ripped apart in our mother's wounds before we were even born.

You know, it's very easy to talk about this and it's humanitarian and all that. What about that poor kid? It's not okay. It's not okay to say that. It does not matter if that does not provoke you to righteous anger. Then then don't speak to me about those who have no voice because you're not speaking for them. Those unborn kids have no voice on top of that. The poor have very little voice. How many people claim to speak for the poor. But you notice how many of those who speak on tv for the poor are not poor. The poor don't get to speak for themselves. Other people get to speak for the port. Other people get to tell the poor what the poor need authority is. The proper use of God's voice to work for someone else. I want to say that your authority is the proper use of God's voice to work for someone else. The voice of the unborn has to matter. And we have to pray for our land to be healed. I want to read to James chapter four verse 1 - 11.

And we're gonna break this down this weekend next. And it says, why do why do wars and fights come from among you? Now again, I want you to understand. He's talking to Churchill. He's not talking to a bunch of guys or girls that are doing the worst things under the sun. He's talking to the church. Why do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure? That war in your members? You lust and do not have you murder and cover it and cannot obtain. You fight and war you do not have because you do not ask you ask, and do not receive? Because you ask, amiss that you may be able to spend it on your places, adulterers and adulterous. Is do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world, makes himself an enemy of God? Or do you think that the scripture says in vain. The spiritual dwells in us yearns jealously, but he gives more grace. Therefore, he says, God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. It doesn't matter what you've done. God gives grace to the humble.

It doesn't matter what you've done, even if you've been involved in an abortion, or maybe you've murdered other people or whatever you've done, God gives grace to the humble, but he resists the proud. Therefore submit to God, resist the devil and evil free from you notice you've got to submit to God first, then resist the devil, and the devil will run draw near to God and he will draw near to you, cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your heart, your double minded lament and mourn and weep, let your last to be turned to mourning, and your joy to gloom humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he will lift you up. Do not speak evil of one another brethren. You breaks here, who speaks evil of a brother, and judges. His brother speaks evil of the law, and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law, but a judge now, I just want to say, And we're going to speak about the thoughts from that passes, I'm going to speak about one or two now and the rest next week, but God wants us to really repent.

I want you to look at what it's saying there. Alright, lament and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned into mourning and your joy to gloom. That's repentance. Not a casual I'm sorry. What you don't accept. Can't you hear that? I said, I'm sorry you don't accept myself. That's not sorry. That's not sorry. God wants us to lament and mourn and weep and then receive the grace and to humble ourselves. He wants it to come from a place of morning and gloom. Because true repentance comes from a place Lord, I'm giving everything to you because if I don't give everything to you, I mess it up. Lord. Everything I do is just a mess without you. And the Lord is doing us a favor in any commander gives us. You see, this is what I want us to understand. Every command that God gives us. He's doing us a favor. Because all of his commands lead to life. They all lead to life In verse 11, he says, if I judge someone else judge the law because I say it's inferior to God's law of love.

And so all of us need to be challenged with us. And now we look at what is the true source of conflict. I want what you have. That's where conflict comes from. I want what you have James 41 and two? Why do where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure? That war in your members. You lust and do not have you murder and covered and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask, you know, if you think about wars between nations, a war between two nations starts because one nation has something that another nation wants. That's where they start. And if we have this in our soul, then we have a war in our soul and all walls that happened on the outside. It starts in the souls of men and women. Your income or your lack of income does not testify to where you are with God. It doesn't mean because you're poor. You're close to God. It doesn't mean because you're rich, you're close to God. You know often we we like to judge people. Some people see if you reach you close to God, other people see how if you're poor, you're close to God now you can be rich or poor and far from God.

But God does promise that when we seek his kingdom first, then everything we need will be added to it. I want to tell you something today that may shock you. God wants our blessing and he wants our blessing to be an addition to life. He doesn't want us to pursue that when I give myself completely over to God. Yes. The important thing when I come and I humble myself before God. Then he can trust me and jesus promised that those who give everything to him, he will give back 100 times with persecution. The persecution keeps us humble never despise the persecution never despise people who betray your step in the back, they keep in your humble. I know it sucks to say that how it sucks thank Calvin. We can make a song. It sucks. Oh how it sucks, but it's true, it keeps us humble, it keeps us honest. Now. The stuff that jesus adds is not just the physical things because the Apostle paul spoke in the book of Philippians about how he had learned to be content in all situations.

He had learned to be content with much. He had learned to be content with little. He had learned it. The thing is that is where our design is to be to get there because when you get to that place doesn't matter what you're going through, you have everything you need. God promises to give you everything you need. And if you leave it with him, he can leave it with you. You see that's how God works when you leave it with him, he can trust you with it. God is interested in process. But I'm interested in outcome. And this is where the conflict comes between us and the word God is interested in the process of what's happening in our lives that we are becoming more and more like jesus, but we want an outcome. Sometimes a believer wants another believers position. Sometimes a believer wants another believers favor, you know, the favor they get from God. Sometimes believers want another believers gift. Many times believers want another believers recognition now being inspired by other believers is a good thing. If other if other believers inspire us to step out and to step up, that's a good thing.

But one thing what they have leads to us doing it on our own. And the thing is you're going to have a payment you're going to have to make when you do it on your own. The payment is a payment of sorrow. I want to tell you that there's many business people. There are many famous people. There are many influences. You know, your social media influences. There are many of them. They've made it big but they lost their family along the way. Uh huh. And for many people when they are squashing their conscience down every day is a battle for them to mute their conscience. You know when their conscience speaks then they press mute mm doing things on my own leads me to a place where our compromise and and I compromise. Which now means I'm actually fighting for things that aren't mine. And this is the nature of the war that is raging within our bodies. We're fighting for things that aren't ours. And the spirit of war is robbing the souls of many people. So the question that you need to ask yourself is what will be allowed to feed our hearts because whatever we allowed to feed our hearts will either feel the spirit Yeah or to fuel the flesh when I covered I get out of divine sequence.

I get out of what God wants for my life and so I become a thief right? I start taking what does not belong to me. And the thing that we need to realize is that the heart is the center of all things. It's a center of all things to such an extent that it governs our destination. If we, if we do the right things, we have right actions and we speak the right words, but we speak it with the wrong heart corrupt heart is going to cause a problem that wrong heart is going to let us end up in a place of failure when you're truly yielded to the Lord, both the outcome and the process or holy. And I want you to understand that the first thing that we have to realize mhm is that the grace of God comes to the humble the grace of God comes to us. You know when we read the bible, the bible speaks to us and challenges us in our innermost core. This is why I'm so um passionate about telling people to get up in the morning and study the word because when you speak to the word, sorry, when you read the word and you let the words speak to you, the word will challenge you and and when you respond to the word, you will begin to change.

And as you begin to change and you learn how to apply the blood of jesus to your life, you will change to to learn to become more like jesus. But here's the other thing that you have to realize without the blood of jesus, we're not good enough for God. With the blood of jesus were good enough for God because of jesus. You know, you might be sitting there full of guilt today. But when you read a passage like that one from James three and the other one from James chapter four we know we're all guilty of that. There's no one that's more guilty than you and there's no one that you are more innocent than you know. Even the people, we criticize the people, we judge all of those people. Yeah, they're guilty many times. They're guilty. But we're just as guilty. And the issue is what the Lord wants us is to get to the cross so that we can start understanding what jesus did for us on the cross, he died our death. He took the punishment for us and he took our pain for sickness and and and and and and poverty and all of these. He took those curses on his body and I really want you to think about that today by the blood of jesus, we are redeemed now.

We live in a world that is dominated by satan, that's why there's so much evil, but by the blood of jesus. And when we apply the blood of jesus, we are redeemed from the power of the enemy. We are redeemed. What does that mean? He bought us at a price. What was the price? His own blood? His own life that he died on the cross, He got punished for arson, he got punished because we had lost our crown and so he takes us because we believe in him. He takes us out of the Kingdom of Darkness and puts us into the kingdom of jesus, the son of God, he puts us into his own kingdom, Jesus becomes our king. He bought us at the price of his own blood. You cannot even begin to imagine how expensive the blood of jesus is. There is no sin that you could have ever committed that is that is more expensive than the blood of jesus. When you say that your son is too bad for the blood of jesus, you know what you're telling jesus? You're telling jesus, Oh I'm so awesome, I managed to sin that a sin that is so big that even your life can't redeem it.

Mhm. Texan insulting, you've got to realize this by the blood of jesus that were forgiven forgiven forgiven means as the bible says that God remembers your sin no more. He looks at you like he looked at jesus. In fact, in one place the bible declares as jesus goes in the world. So are you If you apply the blood of jesus and you believe in jesus and you believe in what he did for you on the cross? Yeah, it doesn't matter what this, I don't care what the sun is, you could have been Hitler and killed six million jews in the Second World War. It doesn't matter if you come in faith to jesus, his blood will wash your son away. What would that sound fair for the people who are murdered? I know it is, hey, but if God were fair, we'd all end up in our you're forgiven. That's why it's called grace. It's a free gift from God that he gives. The only thing you have to do is to receive it. And then he says, if I walk in the light and our fellowship with other believers, the blood of jesus cleanses us now and continually of sin.

In other words, he doesn't just fix up my Parsons now and into the future now and continuously. He's continuously cleansing us of Austin, which means it's like permanent spiritual dialysis constantly being cleansed and then because of this by the blood of jesus, we are justified. It means we are made just all the injustices we've committed are forgiven and from then on the Holy spirit begins to convict you that you are the writers of God in christ, jesus. Mhm. The enemy then comes in convention tries to convict you of sin. Got any conviction of sin. To the point where you accept Jesus as your Lord and savior, he stopped doing that and your flesh after that wants to carry on with the guilt and the enemy wants you to carry on with the guilt. But by the blood of jesus, you're now forgiven and by the blood of jesus, when I set apart, you see in my sinful state, I can't serve God because the best things I do, I like filthy rags in his side, that's what the bible says.

But now because the blood of jesus, I'm cleansed my hands that was soiled with sin are cleansed and now all of a sudden he gives me the incredible, incredible privilege that I'm able to serve it. How do you serve him? I'm at work, I speak to a colleague about jesus, I'm at work, someone knows that I'm a believer. They come because they've got a disaster everything in their family and they asked me to pray for them, I go to gym the other person there, the weight falls on their foot, help them with the weight and you know all of this and then share the gospel with them and whatever, wherever the Lord allows with wisdom, I just start sharing with people about jesus, that's that's what Jesus wants us to do and and he wants us to be living a life where God is real and we are seeing the miracles of God every single day. But it's a gift. It's a gift. Mhm. But it takes humility to say Lord, I can't make myself right with you. I need to be saved. Yeah. Mhm. I'm sorry, sorry for my son. And when I do that and I come with repentance in Romans 10 verse 89.

It is but what does it say? The word is near you in your mouth and in your heart that is the word of faith which we preach. That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved. That's a promise. That's a promise. You will be saved. So what do you have to do? You've got to confess with your mouth. The Lord jesus, In other words you're saying Jesus is Lord. Now what does it mean if jesus is Lord means he owns you and the more of of you, he owns, the more you will work in your life and then you say and you so you confess with your mouth allergies and you believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead. What is the biggest thing that you have to believe in order to receive jesus as Lord and savior. That God raised him from the dead. God rise, informative that he ascended to heaven. That right now. he's seated at the right hand of the father, he's your advocate, he's your lawyer.

He's defending you with his own blood. Every time an accusation is brought before the throne of God, jesus presents the evidence of his own blood to say now you're innocent now there's justifications happened here. No, no, no, no. That yeah, there was an injustice but just here's the blood justice been done that since being punished. The devil doesn't want you to know the power of this. Mhm And so and all the other things we fight for is actually fooled us out of our eternal inheritance. So I want you to realize today your eternal death is at stake today. Not tomorrow. Not next week today don't sell. You know if you had to say I don't say I'll wait until later, I'll just pray at home. If you're listening to audio, maybe you're sitting in a taxi or somewhere maybe at work whatever and you're listening to order. Don't say no, I'll wait till I get I'm gonna do it right now do it right now because God is speaking to you right now. He's saying right now I want you to commit to me.

Yeah, uh huh. When you come to this altar of mine that sacrifices everything and don't think I'm gonna have some better prayer time later. Now is the time the Lord say now is the moment Now at the moment and when you respond to school what you're saying to him, you're saying, Lord I want you Lord, this is my time. This is the time, Lord, I want to commit you right now. I want to submit. My life completed you right now. I can't wait until I get home. I can't wait until later. I can't wait until I'm alone. I can't wait, Lord, I want to commit to you right now because I don't want to live eternity far from you. Mhm. I want to live close to you from this day on because one day when my death comes knocking, I want to know that I'll be okay because you'll be with me for all eternity. You'll be walking with me through that doorway. I want to know Lord, now, that's what you're saying. You're saying, Lord, give me this assurance and someone else, everyone in the sites to close your eyes.

Yeah. And if you had one of the sites, I'm gonna ask you in a moment to raise your hand. If you want to give your life to jesus, Recommit your life to jesus. If you're at home, I'm gonna ask you to send an email to info at the Active chose dot org, that's info at the Active chose dot org. If you're giving your life or your recommending your life to jesus.

Say Lord jesus. Today I recognize that I am a sinner, I repent of everything I've done wrong, I renounce my life of sin and I accept your sacrifice and I know that it was the price you paid for my redemption. And today Lord I ask that the blood of your wounded body wash me of all my rebellion. Omarsson set me free from any sickness and from any pain. I accept that my debt has been paid. There is now standing balance because you paid everything for me on the cross of calvary. I accepted by your blood I'm justified and you see me as though I had never seen and by your blood I'm sanctified and you have chosen me to serve you. I'm willing to serve you. And today I open the door of my heart and I invite you to come in as my Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me and giving me eternal off play this in jesus name I mean mm Yeah mm let your mhm
