It is wonderful to know God's word, but we are only blessed when we practise the Word. The knowledge of the truth alone will not make us free, but the doing it. You are deceiving your own self when you do nothing with your knowledge of God's word. Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God - Romans 10:17. But faith without works is dead. The Lord Jesus has commanded us to learn of Him by following His examples to do as He has done.
Are you born again? Christ has redeemed you from the curse of the law that the blessing of Abraham might be released upon you; and that you might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. Activate your faith by declaring what the Lord has done in the face of the negative situations around you. Like Apostle Paul, always remember and talk about how and when the Lord redeemed you from the enemy.
Because of the sin of Adam, every man is born into the world with inherited sin, apart from Jesus - the seed of the woman. And no one can cleanse himself from sin or help another man. Only Jesus can transform a sinner into a saint by cleansing them with His precious blood which was shed for many for the remission of sins. Jesus stands at the door of your heart, knocking, that you may let Him in.
Beloved, the latter part of our key text says God has created all things including you, for His pleasure. What does it mean to please God? It simply means giving Him first place in everything that you do in life. This can be achieved by sincerely seeking God to know the right thing to do in every situation, and endeavouring to do it. Depend on the Holy Spirit who has been given to the Church to lead us into all truth.
At the throne of grace we enjoy a double portion: God's forgiving mercy and His pardoning grace. Whereas, His grace has appeared to all men for personal appropriation, God's mercy is there for the asking. The Lord is always there to answer anyone that will dare to call upon Him in the time of trouble. There's abundant pardon awaiting the penitent sinner.
