The blood of Jesus provides the only solution to man's greatest problem. I was a born into a fallen world, resigned to participate in a degenerate existence with no hope of recovery. The pain of sin and death immediately attached itself to me and put into perpetual motion the ravages of death, each day drawing me closer to my eternal demise. Even my own will, separated from God, would be owned by my greatest enemy to disseminate deceit and to seal my own fate. Apart from the redeeming power of the blood of Jesus Christ, I was doomed. But God demonstrated His own love for me in that while I was still a sinner, Christ died for me (Romans 5:8). My biggest problem solved!


Scripture Verses regarding the Blood of Jesus

Helping those in need

In other passages in the Bible we know that Christ died FOR our sins but in this passage in Romans we know that Christ also died UNTO sin. In the first instance Christ died to pay the price of our sins which means that the price that Jesus paid for our sin was His death – but in the second case Christ died to break the power of sin in our life, which means that for the rest of the time that we live in this sinful world. sin does not have to have power over us.

When Christ died for our sins it was a once and for all payment and there is nothing more to do but to simply believe the gospel message that Christ died for our sins and was raised the third day – the result of which is that we are removed from the kingdom of Satan and placed into the family of God – forever – past present and future sins are paid for by the cross of Christ. At that moment in time we were placed IN Christ and as a result the cross has a secondary meaning to us – Christ died UNTO sin, so sin shall not have dominion OVER you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

Forgiveness is the route that allows us to let go of that toxicity. Lack of forgiveness is us trying to maintain some semblance of power within our identity. It has the opposite effect; it changes us into something bitter, twisted, and enslaved. God has designed us to be something better – something glorious, beautiful, and free. We created the debt in our mind; we can write off the debt and let go of the shackles that tie us to our resentment. Additionally, God would like us to move into a state of being that is beyond understanding our relationships in terms of debt transactions. God wants us to see each other in terms of grace (a gift).

CHRISTIAN CHURCH

Repentance begins with a sincere decision to turn from sin and surrender to the lordship of Jesus Christ. And it’s an ongoing process. The New Testament word for repentance — metanoia — literally means “to change one’s mind.” This change of mind and heart results in a change of actions (Luke 3:8-14; Acts 3:19).

In Acts 26:20, Paul says he preached so “that they should repent and turn to God, performing deeds in keeping with their repentance.” He expected transformation.

There is a strong connection between repentance and salvation in the Book of Acts (2:38, 3:18-19, 11:18; 17:30; 20:21; 26:20). To repent, so far as it relates to salvation is concerned, is to change your mind about Jesus Christ — to accept Him and surrender to His authority rather than reject Him as Lord and Savior.

So repentance is much more than just saying, “I’m sorry.” It’s a change of mind and heart that results in a clearer view of God, others and ourselves. True repentance ought to be motivated by love for Christ and the sincere desire to be in a right relationship with Him.

As we repent and rely on God’s saving grace through faithful obedience to the gospel, we are cleansed from all sin. Thus, repentance is personal, powerful, perpetual and sometimes a painful process. But it ultimately leads to forgiveness and real peace.

In Luke 5:31-32 (ESV), Jesus states, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.” His message ought to give each of us spiritual hope; no matter our background or things we’ve done in the past for which we’re ashamed.Type your paragraph here.

Strategies for Dealing with Depression

Here are some practical strategies for helping others who are facing depression. However, never assume there are no medical issues that need attention.

Describe the experience. Ask people to describe their experience of depression in vivid detail. People are different, so depression comes in many shapes and sizes. 

Identify the causes. Depression often is not just something we have, it is something we do. Invite people to examine their own hearts with this question: If your depression could speak, what would it say? What does it say about you? To others? To God? Depression is an active experience and can result from many sources other than the physiological: guilt due to unconfessed sin, false guilt, misplaced shame, ungodly fears, suppressed bitterness or hatred, hopeless grieving, and unbiblical expectations.

Read and observe Scripture. Ask people with whom you work to study Psalms 42-43. How does the psalmist address God? What does he preach to himself? 

Act on the truth. Those who seek help first must accept the challenge of faithful obedience, even though they do not feel like it and are skeptical that anything will make a difference, it's important to have faith. Also, explain to them that progress out of the pit is step-by-step, bit-by-bit. Small, practical, consistent faith-based change occurs in the details.

Look at lifestyle. Evaluate and provide recommendations for lifestyle problems, such as overworking, lack of exercise, sleep difficulties, procrastination, unresolved stressors, absence of spiritual disciplines.

Resolve conflicts. Deal with troubled relationships, past or present.

Get to work. Assign active loving tasks performed for the benefit of others. Helping others can provide a new perspective on life.

See a doctor. Refer depressed persons to a Christian physician to rule out physical causes if a physician has not been contacted already. Persons who are already taking multiple medications may need a physician's care to avoid further complications.
