What A Redemption!

"Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed."  (I Peter 2:22-24)

What God has done for us on the Cross we do not know.  You do not know His power.  You may have love for a person, but you may not be able to ransom him.  You may not have the money or the capacity.  God has died for you.  He has suffered for you, that your sins may be forgiven forever.  That love died, it endured a hard suffering.  He is able to deliver from any depth of sin, provided you are willing.  What a Redemption He has brought.  If you wait to widen your mind and make it a powerful mind to work spiritual miracles, fill it with the Word of God and not with empty trash.

Our wills are weak, vacillating and undependable.  He will deliver you from it.  He will make it like a rock.  Your will will become powerful.  Your affections are wild, uncontrollable, impure, ill-guided, ill-placed, fruitless and destructive, but your affection will be redeemed.  Your imagination is vain, foolish and empty.  You are whiling away your time and life in them.  Those imaginations will never come to pass.  Your imagination can be redeemed.  Your thoughts are poisonous.  The Bishop of your soul knows about it and has made provision for your deliverance from it.  The thoughts that come in prayer will be powerful.

What a memory you have - how ill-guided - it remembers only evil about people and not the good that they do.  A hundred good things we forget.  But the one evil they may have done we remember.  Terrible memories!  What vain souls we are!  The Bishop of your soul can deliver you from all these.  Do you put yourself under His guidance, care and teaching?  He has reconciled you to God.  Have you come to the place where the power of God can work with you?  Christ has restored us to God, where we can share His power, love and glory.  If you come to this place, great love and power will come through you to deliver those that are destroying themselves and are lost.  You do not know the power of God or the Scriptures.  Those who go to God in Bible-study and prayer will one day share His almightiness, all graciousness, and all holiness.  The beauty of Heaven will be seen through your life and example and many will be saved.
