Burnt offerings (ὁλοκαύτωμα)
"And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen." John 21:25
Lord Jesus Christ, Continue your wonderful works through us. That people may SEE you are alive and beside the Father on your throne of holiness and power and glory...
We lift up your Name Lord Jesus. Not just with words. But with our LIVES.
"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service." Romans 12:1
Father, forgive us our past lukewarmness. We forgive all those who have sinned against us. Forgive us Lord and grant us repentance. Grant us power according to your word.
"And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus. And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness." Acts 4
This is what we need. The only way this can happen is by God's Mercy and us being obedient to all we know in God's Word with all our hearts. With all the strength He gives us. Which is exceeding abundantly above all we can ask or think!!
You can be saved!
God loves the people in the world so much that He came down to die for us. If God is opening your heart to His message and you feel convicted for your sins which have separated you from a holy God and you feel the need to be forgiven, then say this prayer. This is how I was powerfully converted to the Christ in 1997!
Say, "My Lord and my God, have mercy on me, a sinner. I believe Jesus the Christ died on the cross and shed His precious blood for the forgiveness of all my sins. I believe Jesus raised from the dead and ascended into heaven and is now on the right-hand side of God listening to this prayer. I open up the door of my heart and I invite You in, Lord Jesus. Thank you, God, for saving my soul and I vow to serve you with all my heart which is the first and greatest commandment. Amen."
