Come let us Grow Together is a weekly series that deals with the many topical categories that exist within the Word of God. The purpose of this series is to grow in wisdom, knowledge, and understanding in things pertaining to God.
If it weren’t for the mercies of the Lord any one of us may also find ourselves in prison some day for something we have done, God forbid, but remember wrong choices can sometimes ruin your life and everyone you knew in connection with you. It is of vital importance that you hear what I am saying to you. If it weren’t for the mercies of the Lord any one of us may also find ourselves in prison some day for something we have done. Wrong choices can sometimes ruin your life and everyone you knew in connection with you.
22 It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. You may be getting by with what you are doing right now but everyone of us have been guilty before God “Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.” (Psa 51:5) It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. We were all guilty before God!! No one is exempt from this! So quit running from God and quit running after your own carnal ways!! If God wanted you dead you wouldn’t be alive! If God wanted you drinking everyday of your life he wouldn’t have given you the opportunity to be born again of water and of the Spirit!! It’s time to put the bottle away!! “Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.” (Eph 5:17-21)
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come. But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Rm 5:8-21) If it weren’t for the Mercies of the Lord we would all be damned to eternal hellfire in the Lake of fire to be revealed in due time!!!
Hear me!! It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. Stop running from God and quit looking for another fix, another hit, another pill, another drink, more sex, more ungodliness, more filth, and more wickedness, and more lewdness. “And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.” (Rm 13:11-14)
It’s time to repent and let God both heal you and forgive you of your past and press on toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus! Wherein our redemption is found! For if it weren’t for the mercies of the Lord we would all be consumed!! Not one of us would stand!! It is only be the grace of Almighty God and the redemption found in Christ Jesus that anyone of us can be made whole!! Do you want to be made whole? Do you want to find that place of peace that God has to offer to you through Jesus Christ? Then it’s time to come home! I said it’s high time to awake out of slumber and come home! It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. But I have done this and I have done that and I say to you the Apostle Paul wreaked havock on the church of the Living God, entering into every house, and forcing men and women committing them to prison. The Apostle Paul said “I verily thought with myself, that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth. Which thing I also did in Jerusalem: and many of the saints did I shut up in prison, having received authority from the chief priests; and when they were put to death, I gave my voice against them. And I punished them oft in every synagogue, and compelled them to blaspheme; and being exceedingly mad against them, I persecuted them even unto strange cities.” (Acts 26:9-11) If it weren’t for the Mercies of the Lord we would all be consumed!!
It’s time to come home! No more excuses!! It’s time to come home! Jesus said, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Mt 11:28-30) It’s time to come home!
To those who have never been born of water and of the Spirit as Jesus instructed Nicodemus in John chapter 3 verses 1-8 today is the day of salvation! It’s time to fulfill what Jesus has freely given to you and apply God’s free plan of salvation. To be born again of water and of the Spirit the Apostle Peter with the rest of the Apostles present told all of us how we are to be born again as Jesus had instructed saying, “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.” (Acts 2:38-39) Is the Lord calling you? Then it’s time to come home and partake of the rest of the Lord and to those who have not yet obeyed the scriptures of how to become born again you need to “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost” before it’s to late and you make your final arrival to the Lake of fire where the fire is never quenched! It’s time to come home!
