I wonder this morning if there are grave-clothes of yesterday that need to be removed in your own life, dear friend. You are a baptised, born-again child of God, but perhaps there are still remnants of the past that need to be dealt with.
You try to move forward, but the devil, who is the accuser keeps pointing to the grave-clothes. He uses whatever he can: other people,your circumstances, even your own memories,to try and convince you you are worthless and have nothing to offer, because you messed up yesterday.Child of God, on behalf of our Saviour Who died for your freedom could I speak deliverance in your life.Could I declare right here and now that you are set free by the precious blood of Jesus! In your life, may every chain be broken; every shackle be removed, every lying and accusing voice of the devil be silenced in the name of Jesus!May you walk forward in the life and the freedom which Christ has called you into.
Listen along (by clicking player below) as we consider this question, and the various opinions held concerning the Christ (I preached this sermon at St John’s Lutheran Church on Sunday 28th February 2016). God bless you!
