Defending or Excusing Myself? Have You Run To Your Advocate Or Still Attempting to Defend Yourself?

"In that they show the work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness and their thoughts alternately accusing or else defending them, on the day when, according to My gospel, God will judge the secrets of men through Christ Jesus." Romans 2:15-16

Am I resting and coming to my Advocate in Christ Jesus following His Leading and Word or defending myself, reviling, excusing and blaming or repenting with Godly sorrow when I have done so?

"WHO COMMITTED NO SIN, NOR WAS ANY DECEIT FOUND IN HIS MOUTH; and while being reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously; and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed.…" I Peter 2:22-24

Luke 23:41
"We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong."

Hebrews 12:3
"Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart."

1 Peter 3:9
"Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing."

Thanks be to God who GAVE us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. That I may know HIM and the power of HIS resurrection and fellowship of HIS sufferings.

May we receive God's love in Christ in full measure and return with thanksgiving, praise and honor loving God with all that we are, mind, soul, body and strength, loving our brethren and blessing those who persecute us, praying for those who despitefully use, hate and accuse us!

"So The Last Shall Be First and the First Last: Many Are Called But Few Are Chosen." Matthew 20:16

We we stay in our own lane, humbly keeping our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, forsaking any sin that so easily besets us.

Thanks be to God who GIVES us the victory through our LORD JESUS CHRIST. We have done nothing, GOD gave us a GIFT and our boast must be in the CROSS OF CHRIST! Galatians 6:14 - "But GOD forbid that I boast in anything except of the CROSS of CHRIST"

for there you and I can walk in the power of HIS resurrection and fellowship of HIS sufferings. Jesus was lifted up, now boast on in HIS victory GIVEN to us! HE IS ALIVE AND COMING AGAIN! Romans 2:16

There's No Boasting In Brokeness Other Than In The Cross of Our Lord, Where Real Bread Is Found....

May we stay in our own lane, humbly keeping our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, forsaking any sin that so easily besets us.

"Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you." Ephesians 4:31-32

Thanks be to God who GIVES us the victory through our LORD JESUS CHRIST. We have done nothing, GOD gave us a GIFT and our boast must be in the CROSS OF CHRIST! Galatians 6:14 - "But GOD forbid that I boast in anything except of the CROSS of CHRIST"

for there you and I can walk in the power of HIS resurrection and fellowship of HIS sufferings. Jesus was lifted up, now boast on in HIS victory GIVEN to us! HE IS ALIVE AND COMING AGAIN! Romans 2:16

Where was I a beggar and can I show a dead man where Christ gave me food and Living Water? Eat HIS flesh and drink HIS blood, for apart from HIS body, there is no life!

Upon What Or Whom Am I Fixing My Eyes? Where I Fix My Eyes Is Where My Heart Abides.

"For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal." II Corinthians 4:17-18

Lord help my eyes to be full of light fixing them upon the author and finisher of my faith Jesus Christ, for in YOU are hidden all the wisdom, beauty, treasure and fullness of God. May they stay fixed upon the Cross so I can receive YOUR RISEN life, love, forgiveness and bestow the Gospel to mankind, loving the brethren and giving mercy to my enemies, thank YOU for loving me this way, Thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ, that I may know HIM and the power of HIS resurrection and fellowship of HIS sufferings. I need the BREAD and BLOOD of MY SAVIOR for apart from this I am dead in my sin, a liar, charlatan and unmerciful slave of the devil.

"HE was pierced for our rebellion
Crushed for our sins
Beaten So we could be made whole
He was whipped so we could be healed."
Isaiah 53:5

Have I brought anyone to the tree where I was made whole and healed by the Lamb of God?

Rejection affects one when they fail to realize what God did in Christ to make them accepted.

Loving people that love me is love born of flesh, sin and carnality, (tax collecting love) loving and blessing people that despise, use and persecute me is born from heaven, of the Spirit of Christ, even as the Father loved me.

"But God commended HIS love towards you and I in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us." Romans 5:8

May Christ be formed in my heart and God you have so lavishly bestowed mercy to me, may I do so to the brethren and my enemies. Christ never looked down on anyone until HE was fashioned to a tree, bleeding, laying down HIS own life of HIS own accord, willfully saying, Father forgive them, they know not what they do. Are we grateful HE did not say, Father judge them, cast them down and get me off this Cross, may they be forever under YOUR wrath. May we praise the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. Are you forgiven?

Demas forsook Paul and the Gospel for he loved this present world. II Timothy 4:10

Have and will we forsake the love or admiration of this present world for Jesus Christ and HIS Gospel? God gave us a present and it hung on a tree with nailed scared hands, bleeding, beaten and scourged for my sin, wickedness and rebellion. What love, mercy and grace the Father has bestowed upon us to make us acceptable in HIS sight, for THY kingdom come and may we not allow any sin which so easily entangles us ensnare us, beset us keeping our eyes on the author and finisher of our faith, Jesus the Christ. HE is risen ascended and coming again, prepare! Come quickly Lord Jesus.

May we hallow, reverence YOUR NAME - JESUS the name above every name and give mercy, counting others more important than ourselves, for YOU esteemed me and I cannot get over that! Love YOU with everything, the brethren and even our enemies.

Thanks be to God who GIVES us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. May I remove the beam before I help my brother with a spec, get on praying ground, praising ground! Lord keep us humble, gentle, teachable unto YOUR WORD, SPIRIT and WILL! That I may know Christ and the power of HIS resurrection and fellowship of HIS sufferings.

Are the affections of my heart set on things above or on things if this world?

Brian must decrease, Jesus must increase!

You can't even cry for mercy unless the love of GOD reaches down, quickens your mind, reveals the condition of a sinful, rebellious heart in opposition to HIM and breathes HIS SPIRIT into your vessel for the ability to call on the name of JESUS and know not only your need of HIM but the FATHER's great provision in the GIFT of HIS SON towards you in a bloody CROSS judged for our SIN, atonement provided, pardon provided, forgiveness granted, redemption made real.

"For by grace you have been saved 'delivered', it is a gift of God not of works lest any man should boast." Ephesians 2:8-9

But God forbid that I should boast in anything excluding the Cross of Christ that I have been crucified to the world and the world to me. Thanks be to GOD who gives us the VICTORY through Jesus Christ our LORD. That I may know HIM and the power of HIS resurrection and fellowship of HIS sufferings.
