Get Back to JESUS

 

 By Pastor Mike

I want to talk about getting back to JESUS when we mess up. First of all don’t let anyone tell you that when you mess up JESUS doesn’t want you anymore. That’s a lie from the devil, he just doesn’t want us staying with JESUS.

I had to learn how to love JESUS and learn how to accept HIS love. Even when I first got saved, I wondered how could JESUS love me after all I did that was wrong.

Everybody messes up now and again. But how you feel about it and what you do about it makes a huge difference. There’s 3 guys in the Bible that come to mind right away. First is King David. He planned out his sin with adultery, lying, and murder. Read 2 Samuel chapter 11 for the whole story. David wrote most of the Psalms. Read them too. Its good reading. Then when Peter messed up by denying JESUS 3 times, but he fell on his knees and asked for forgiveness. He was forgiven. Then there was Judas who sold out JESUS and then instead of asking for forgiveness, he went and hung himself because he thought there was no going back to JESUS. I wanna tell you not to listen to the lies of the devil. JESUS will forgive you. We should do our best not to mess up. But when we do, HE’s waiting with open arms to bring us back to HIM.

Psalm 51:1-4

 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.

Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.

When we stop making excuses for messing up, and confess it, we will have a better relationship with GOD and we’ll feel better about ourselves.

We can experience inward healing, and feel better about ourselves if we would just confess our sins to GOD. HE already knows them. HE wants us to confess them to HIM, get forgiveness from HIM and move forward in HIM. Once it’s forgiven, HE forgets about it. Don’t beat yourself up. Don’t let anyone beat you up.

Too many people blame someone or something else whenever they fail.  It’s not always easy to accept responsibility for our failures, but we have to if we want to get our lives back on track. We have to stop blaming others and accept responsibility for our actions.

We can’t blame our sin on anyone else. We can’t blame our sin on the Devil. We’re responsible for our actions.

1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Getting back on track requires a change of direction—where we stop going our way and start going HIS way. By spending time alone with GOD on a regular basis.

Repentance results in joy. If you’ve blown it, you need to get past feeling guilty and get back on track. Ask GOD to help you change your heart, and change your mind, and change your direction.

Simple

The WORD of GOD is the greatest Book ever written. It is the greatest love story ever written. I wonder why our kids can’t read the Bible in school but they can read it in prison. They have a Bible people swear on in court to tell the whole truth but they can’t display the 10 commandments like they used to. The Bible isn’t a hard Book to follow.

You need to repent of your sins and turn away from them. Not just say sorry. We need to stop doing what we know is wrong. We need to stay on the narrow path to Heaven. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. The road to Heaven is paved with obedience.

Then you need to get Baptized in the Name of JESUS.

Matthew 28:19

19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

The word name here is singular which means the name to be Baptized in is the name of JESUS. The name of the Father is JESUS. The name of the Son is JESUS. The name of the Holy Ghost is JESUS. Everyone that was Baptized in the Book of Acts was Baptized in the name of our LORD JESUS. If you need to be Baptized, you need to be Baptized in the name of JESUS.

You shall receive the gift of the HOLY GHOST. It’s a free gift. It’s yours if you want it. As you receive the gift of the HOLY GHOST you will speak in tongues. Speaking out loud is the key here. JESUS wants to take control of your tongue because it is the most unruly thing we got. We need to speak to the LORD and HE will take over and you will speak in another language. It’s for today. Whatever happened in the Bible back then is for us today. All of it. You gotta believe all of it.

John 1:1,14

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

John 14:9

Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?

Philip asks to see the Father and JESUS tells him that we been together how long? You’ve seen all the miracles that I did. You’ve seen me forgive people from their sins. If you’ve seen me, you’ve seen the Father. JESUS means that I AM THE FATHER.

Luke 11:23

23 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.

See, it’s very simple. Either you’re for JESUS or you’re against HIM. If you’re against JESUS that means you’re either for yourself or for the enemy. Either way you’re gonna lose. I chose to be with JESUS. I wanna gather with JESUS, meaning spending time with HIM. People who don’t hang with JESUS scatters all over the place meaning they will fall for anything the devil throws at them.  We need to understand that if we look to the devil we will be oppressed. If we look to ourselves we will be depressed. If we look to GOD we will be BLESSED.
