THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “Getting Serious With Jesus”

James 1:21 Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls.

It’s time to put off that last sin that remains which is keeping you weak and defeated. Jesus wants you completely not just partially. Jesus wants to be Lord over the sin you have held on to because you either think He doesn’t have the power to remove it, or you reserved it because you think He’s ok with something His Word says He’s not. There’s this modern day theology, I’m going to address soon, that says certain sins in the Bible don’t apply to the modern world. This is why James in this verse is recommending our spending time in the Word of God. James knows a cleansing, a metamorphosis will begin to take place as we allow God’s Word to engraft itself in us. Jesus said, “You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you (John 15:3).” The more Word you get the more cleansing you get. I’ll get deeper into this another time, but all those people that say Christianity is brainwashing are right. It’s not what they think of it though. We are on purpose washing our brains to remove the desire for inappropriate behavior. We are also washing our brains of any doubts that would say I’m going to be trapped by this sin for the rest of my life. As we understand how powerful Jesus is through this kind of connection, we can also see ourselves free as we learn His power is in us. Make a decision today your going to put aside anything that would cause you to be a weak Christian. Know that the Lord will provide the tools in order for you to succeed. As you washing your brain you may have some set backs but ultimately you win. Much Luv!
