KEY SCRIPTURE: John 8:41 KJV” Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.”
Sincerity is one of the traits of humility, and a door to one’s freedom from whatever has taken a hold of him. The Lord rightly diagnosed the condition of the Jews. He said to them,’ you seek to kill me because you do the deeds of your father the ‘devil’ ‘ although He did not mention the devil, they knew what he meant. Instead of admitting to the truth they rather said we were not born of fornication. This statement could have two meanings.
1. They could mean we were not born of fornication like you (remember the father of Jesus got to know that Mary, was pregnant, with Jesus before they got married. This was something known to the Jews.) They could have referred to it.
2. That statement could also mean, they are not idolators, and have only God as their God and so are not sons and daughters of fornication.
All these two meanings show that these people were not prepared to admit the truth that they were serving the purpose of their master, the devil.
Many people today, know very well that, they are living very deplorable, or sinful lives, yet they are never ready to admit they are not certain about, their eternal destination. They know their hearts are seriously tormented and have no peace at all, yet they will not humble themselves to the truth, but like the Jews, they find some horrible opposing words against the truth.
Dear one all who humbled themselves to accept the truth of the gospel have experienced real peace, the transformation of lives and even supernatural power to see miracles of healing, even raising of the dead. These things have not been isolated cases to a handful of people, but it cut across the whole earth, so long as the individuals are SINCERE in their beliefs. They experience these things I have talked about.
This is your moment to be sincere to the truth and turn the control of your life to Jesus for an encounter with eternal life.
Dear heavenly father, I acknowledge my sinfulness before you and repent from my unbelieve in you. I confess Jesus as my Lord and personal Saviour. I thank you for saving my soul and coming into my life. I am now a child of God and have received eternal life.
Rom 10:9 KJV That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Mat 11:28 KJV” Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
