Greetings fellow servants of Jesus Christ,
As we enter Holy week, let us remember the Vicarious Victory that’s involved in our Lords great suffering and pain, endured on the Cross. And let the Holy Spirit’s authority be revealed as we focus our attention to Jesus great Sermon on the Mount. “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven, blessed are they that mourn for they shall be comforted, blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth, blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness sake for they shall be filled, blessed are the merciful for they shall shall obtain mercy” (Mathew 5:1-7). The Lords favor is in the hands of his people today and forevermore.
Remembering, also, Paul’s compelling message in Romans 12 verse 1, “I compel you by the authoritative mercies of God, to present your bodies a living sacrafice.” We are alive in one sense to the spirit and dead in the other sense to sin. Let not sin reign in your mortal bodies seeing that we would crucify the Lord afresh. Walk in the spirit so that you will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. Allow Holy Week to remind you of the Victories already Won.
