YOU REALLY CAN RECLAIM YOUR INNOCENCE
I remember when I lifted my hands in the darkness of my childhood bedroom and invited God, if he existed, to take my life. With that surrender came a freedom from so much bondage. I was young, but had already lost my innocence. At age 8 I had already been raped in a garage, by a homosexual boy, while left to play outside. My mother was busy being trained as a Sunday School teacher. (From my heart, I have forgiven him, even as I have been forgiven.) Then, at 12 I was introduced to serious alcohol overdose, by a young woman already out of school. My parents simply let me go on a weekend away with a school friend! This is life in the cities today. Is there hope. I am a living testimony to the hope that exist through one name given under heaven, by which man can be saved. Whatever your problem. His blood will go the distance for you. Just turn to him and ask.
SEE HIS HEART
Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ;
Eph 1:4 even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and without defect before him in love;
Eph 1:5 having predestined us for adoption as children through Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his desire.
IS THIS NOT THE ANGER AND FRUSTRATION OF GOD STILL? Here the prophet writes in his name: “My anger burns against them!” How long will they be incapable of innocence?" (Hosea 8:5). After all he has paid such a price to set us free. In my understanding, believing is not really an option. It is a command: BELIEVE! Nor does it leave you the way you are. You change. You live out what you believe. Faith really shows itself in your actions. As Jesus (Yeshua) puts it, "If you love me, you will keep my commandments."
