It’s all being RECORDED!

A coworker of mine one day said, its all being Recorded! This stuck with me for months. He has no idea of how much that stuck with me, but he will today. God uses everyone to speak a word into your life. Thank you brother for speaking this word.

John 4:16-19 He told her, “Go, call your husband and come back.” 17”I have no husband,” she replied. Jesus said to her, “you are right when you say you have no husband. 18The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have just said is quite true. 19”Sir,” the women said, “I can see that you are a prophet.

When this woman discovered that Jesus know all about her private life, she quickly changed the subject. Often people become uncomfortable when the conversation is too close to home, and they try to talk about something else. As we witness, we should gently guide the conversation back to Christ. His presence exposes sin and makes people squirm, but only Christ can forgive sins and give new life.

Let’s Bring it Home: Only God can delete the sin in your life that is being recorded by God Almighty. You see we are not just talking about what we do outwardly, but inwardly also. Our thoughts and actions are all being recorded by God. We all get upset when someone is recording us without us knowing, and when we know we are being recorded we act a certain way, because we want others to see us in a good light.

So the questions is, why are we not concern about the recording that is going on daily that reaches deep down into your soul? When a Husband or Wife eyes start to wonder, when jealousy seeps in, when we drink to drunkenness and act a fool and the list goes on. Remembering we are being recorded will help us to walk in the Spirit of Righteous even more.

The moment we accept Jesus as our savior, and ask God to forgive us for our sins, they are deleted, and remembered no more according to His word. We do face the consequences, but the sin is remembered no more. We all sin throughout the day, but we can go through the day remaining blameless. So take that feeling of being recorded by someone without knowing it and apply it to Gods recording on your life.

How many times does God have to push the delete button on us when we ask for forgiveness. You see, I don’t need no one putting trash in my back yard. I had enough trouble trying to keep own yard straight with my own desires and thoughts. I want God to record and keep the good recordings of my life, how about you?

Jesus Explains Why He Must Die

John 12:27-31 – Now my heart is troubled, and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour? No, it was for this very reason I came to this hour. Father, glorify your name!” Then a voice came from heaven, “I have glorified it, and will glorify it again.” The crowd that was there and heard it said it had thundered; others said an angel had spoken to him.
Jesus said, “This voice was for your benefit, not mine. Now is the time for judgment on this world,” now the prince of this world will be driven out.

The prince of this would is Satan, an angel who rebelled against God, Satan is real, not symbolic, and is constantly working against God and those who obey him. Satan tempted Eve in the Garden and persuaded her to sin; he tempted Jesus in the desert and did not persuade him to fall. Satan has great power, but people can be delivered from his reign of spiritual darkness because of Christ’s victory on the cross. Satan is powerful, but Jesus is much more powerful. Jesus resurrection shattered Satan’s deathly power. To overcome Satan we need faithful allegiance to God’s Word, determination to stay away from sin, and the support of other believers.

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; (6) in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight.
