28 In this episode, I begin by reminding you I'm not perfect. I used my superior "copy and paste" skills, and when I copied Romans 3:23, I used Romans 3:23 and changed the chapter to 5, and instead of changing the 23 to 8, I changed the 3 to 8 and left the 8. I don't know why I did it, but I did it.
Since we are all "flawed," why would you think I'm perfect and never make any mistakes. That is not me. I encourage you to do your best to be a "doer" of the word but don't ever beat yourself up for making a mistake.
He's my example, admit you've made it and move on. If you hurt someone, ask for forgiveness (that's a different lesson) and move on. If your sin is against God, the same thing, ask Him for forgiveness and move on.
We are spirit, soul, and body and the scripture I used was
1 Thessalonians 5:23
Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We are three parts, and two of the three are at odds with each other and will never see eye to eye.
Your body and spirit are constantly fighting to get your soul (mind, will, and emotions) to vote for them. (or to come to their side or way of thinking)
It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.
The word was with God.
Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
- But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.
1 Peter 2:24
Who Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness by whose stripes you were healed.
That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.
Go back to Episode 1 to hear one of our anchor scriptures. Mark 11:22-23
In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth.
Then God said, "Let there be light; and there was light.
And God saw the light, and that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.
Then God said, "Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
And God called the dry land Earth and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw that it was good.
1 Corinthians 13:13
And now abide faith, hope, and love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
I will pick this up on the next episode.
Thank you for listening.
