Taking Responsibility and Ownership of Your Life

Now that the sin debt has been paid, God is now at peace with humanity. God’s need for a blood sacrifice for sin has been satisfied through Jesus’ death. Eph. 2:11-22, Heb. 9:22

Although God has made peace with humanity, humanity is still under the condemnation of sin and has to make peace with God if it wants to have a relationship with and spend eternity with God.

When you were born-again “You” spirit got saved!

Your soul, the seat of your emotions, which was contaminated by sin at birth, did not get saved, it is being saved. God calls it your sin nature; it seeks to be independent of God in expressing itself in life. Rom. 7:1-25.

To make peace with God humanity must accept God’s offer of peace (salvation) which starts with being born-again through faith in God’s sacrifice of Jesus His only begotten son which instituted a new covenant.

That new covenant is, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind” and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. Luke 10:27

1 John 5:2,3: This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome,

This offer of salvation is really an offer to go back to your God created position with an opportunity to reconnect with God and regain your position over creation.

1 John 3:2,3: Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known.

But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.

1 Corinthians 6:13-20: Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.

For this reason, God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

Matthew 5:32: But I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except on the ground of sexual immorality, makes her commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

For God has not called us for impurity, but in holiness.

Matthew 15:19: For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander.

1 Corinthians 6:15-20: Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, …

Deuteronomy 27:21: “‘Cursed be anyone who lies with any kind of animal.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen.’

Ephesians 5:5: For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.

Acts 15:20: But should write to them to abstain from the things polluted by idols, and from sexual immorality, and from what has been strangled, and from blood.

Deuteronomy 23:17-18: “None of the daughters of Israel shall be a cult prostitute, and none of the sons of Israel shall be a cult prostitute.

You shall not bring the fee of a prostitute or the wages of a dog into the house of the Lord your God in payment for any vow, for both of these are an abomination to the Lord your God.

Colossians 3:1-25: If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.

For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. …

Matthew 19:9: And I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery.”

Leviticus 18:20: And you shall not lie sexually with your neighbor’s wife and so make yourself unclean with her.

Ephesians 5:3-5: But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints.

Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving. For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
