"Whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock..." Matthew 7:24. This verse says whoever hears these sayings and then does them are survivors! Obedience, which is doing the truth, may be the the most important rule for building a storm proof life. Not a storm free life, but a storm proof life! "The evidence of knowing God is obeying God" has been spoken over and over in our lives. In James 1:22 it says "But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves..." The gospel is simple to understand; Listen to the truth and do it! What are some applications we can implement to become obedient and doers of truth? GIVE...FORGIVE...RESIST TEMPTATION...TURN THE OTHER CHEEK...DENY YOURSELF...LOVE GOD AND LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF...GO AND PREACH THE GOSPEL... Lord show me today what I have been hearing You say but have chosen not to do.
IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, EVEN THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. COLOSSIANS 1:14... Did you know that the blood of a baby in the womb never comes in contact with the mother and that it is contributed by the male seed, not by the female egg? This was a divine plan of God when He designed men & women. God knew He would need to send a Savior into the world to redeem them!!! We all need a SAVIOR and only the blood of Jesus can cleanse us and make us white as snow!!! Redeem means to pay a price to ransom someone. Our redemption could only be bought with the perfect, pure blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus came from the Holy Spirit when He overshadowed Mary, therefore the blood of Jesus was completely pure. His blood was the only blood that could pay for our sins because it came directly from God and was never contaminated with sin. It was the perfect payment and sacrifice for our forgiveness!!!The blood of Christ is still cleansing and washing us today as much as it did two t
