“Everyone who commits sin is guilty of lawlessness; sin is lawlessness.” – 1 Jn 3:4. “But if we confess our sins, he who is faithful and just, will forgive us our sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” – 1 Jn 1:9
All of us, human beings, fall into sin. There is no one in this world who is good and perfect and free from sin. For the Word of God itself tells us, “There is no one who is righteous, not even one.” – Rom 3:10. “If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” – 1 Jn 1:10.
Jesus says “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” – John 8:12. “If we walk in the light as he himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.” – 1 John 1:7. Jesus has called us a “chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people, in order that you may proclaim the mighty acts of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” – 1 Pet 2:9
“There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among mortals by which we must be saved.” - Acts 4:12. And that is why, “at the name of Jesus, every knee should bend, in heaven and on earth, and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” – Phil 2:10-11.
Yes, my dear brothers and sisters in Christ; Jesus only is our true God and Savior through whom we can attain eternal life. “Because if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10:9
Oh even if I am sitting in wilderness,
I hear your marvelous creation sing your praise,
I will join them, for it’s your grace,
That I am alive, even when I am left in loneliness.
You make me move further and further,
When I am tired, you alone carry me in your arms,
I am strong, even if I am weak,
Cause I have you besides me
Doing your will is my one desire,
Your spirit has set my heart on fire,
Oh how good is my Lord JESUS,
Who can go away from him after tasting his love.
Praise his name oh his creation .
He is the one who sustains us
Father, Son and the Holy Ghost,
Are my Lord and my God for life long.

Couldn't you stay awake?
He told me to continually pray,
So that I may not fall into their prey,
But I couldn't do as he said
Jesus told, the spirit indeed is willing,
Overcome your flesh and be holy,
Seek first the things of heavenly,
And you will have eternal joy with godly
Temptations will take you away from him,
So be a warrior and take care not to fall into sin,
I have experienced it a lot and in that I have been.
I love you my friend and I tell you my story sincerely.
Tremble at his one word,
Fear to go against his teachings and law.
Love him with all your heart, mind and soul,
To live in holiness he calls everyone of us all.
