Do you realize that you can be forgiven from something but still hold on to the shame of that sin?
The enemies goal is to kill, still and destroy.(John 10:10) He can keep you bound in shame after you are forgiven by God by putting thoughts of condemnation upon you for something that is already under the blood of Jesus! The end of that verse says that Jesus came to give life, and life more abundantly.
The battle first is in the mind. When we Repent (turn and go the other way, not to do it again) we are forgiven by God. He throws it into the sea of forgetfulness never to be remembered again.
But the enemy does not forget and he will throw that in front of your face as often as he can to keep you buried Down Under the weight of a burden that is non-existent in the eyes of God.
One of the main ways you can break the power of that condemnation is by Sharing Your Testimony of what God has done in your life. The Bible says we overcome the Devil by the Blood of the Lamb, the word of Our Testimony and that we do not love our lives even into the death (Revelations 12:11).
We Overcome him NOW, not just at the end of the world. We overcome him daily in our thoughts by taking the blood of Jesus that has covered our sins and commanding the enemy to leave! Then by the word of Our Testimony, we share our freedom that we have received to others.
There are so many sins that are embarrassing and keep us full of shame because we don’t want anyone to know we ever struggled with that. But if we do not share what we have overcome we are robbing someone else of the hope that God can free them from their pit of shame! We are robbing them from the realization that they can take the steps to get freedom from the sin that so easily entangles them. If people don’t realize there are others out there that have walked their walk and have broken free from that sin, then they will never have the hope of a new life walking in Purity before God..
It’s time to get bold with our testimony.
There are hundreds of thousands of people out there who need the transforming power of the blood of Jesus to break chains that have held them in bondage.
Your testimony could be the chain breaker that could change not only their lives but the Legacy that comes after them.
The Accuser of our brothers and sisters thrown out, who accused them day and night before God.
They defeated him through the blood of the Lamb and the bold word of their testimony. They weren’t in love with themselves; they were willing to die for Christ.
