The Lord is my Shepperd "I shall not WANT".

Our wants delay the purification of our souls. Our plans get in the way of His plans.

If you would be like Jesus, live His word and always go direct to God for answers.

godspeed,


freedom

I have never been baptized or anything. but I went to his church and quit going after a while. when things went wrong in my life I prayed and they were answerd. but I find myself cussing and sinning and when I do those things. something happens....

I feel really guilty and want to get back into I guess fellowship with God? everytime I do wrong I feel guilty and ask god for forgivness. I am convinced there is God and Jesus and he died for us. it's so amazing... But I want to quit all sinning all together or slow it down and be a man of god like I think he wants me to be. Sorry if it's too long. can someone relate?
Yes another poster was right we all can. Keep going to God and keep calling upon His name. Read the Bible and pray, Read the Bible and pray, Read the Bible and pray

I can relate.

Now that you have been bought with a price and sealed as His for believing in Jesus Christ in being saved, He is leading you and guiding you in the way you ought to go as Your Good Shepherd as the just shall live by faith in the Son of God.

John 6: 28Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? 29Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

We are not to have any confidence in the flesh to look to ourselves in living the christian life, but to God Our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ, to help us live as His.

John 1: 12But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

2 Corinthians 3: 4And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward: 5Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;

So as we run this race, looking unto the author and finisher of our faith: Jesus Christ, we have confidence that He Who began a good work in us, will finish it in His day to His glory.

Hebrews 12: 1Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 2Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. 4Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin. 5And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: 6For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. 7If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? 8But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. 9Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? 10For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. 11Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

You are now in a reconciled relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

Philippians 1:6Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: .... 9And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; 10That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ. 11Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

So make no promises, nor covenants, nor commitments, nor any religious dedication, but rests in the promises of God that you are His and He is with you always to help you live as His thus the just shall live by faith.

Galatians 2: 20I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. 21I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

Galatians 5: 1Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

Jude 1:24Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, 25To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

This is how we stand apart by His grace from the religious of the world to be a witness of the Son, the Good News to man, so that sinners can place their hopes in Him for eternal life and to be set free from sins having dominion over their lives by getting to know Him and to trust Him at His word that He will help them to live as His, leading them away from temptations and delivering them from the evil one.

1 Corinthias 10:12Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. 13There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

1 John 1: 6If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 8If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1 John 3: 3And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

Colossians 1:20And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. 21And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled 22In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight: 23If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;

Jamerschris.....no matter how tough it gets, and it will ( I can relate), you keep calling on the name of the Father, you hear? Surround yourself with other Bible-believing individuals and study together, pray together. God is calling in His children, you've answered. Feel free to DM me as needed. Bless you on your walk.
