Our Sin is Behind His Back – Calvary Temple VA

Oh, the incredible mercy of God!

We were born into sin. As we grew, we chose to sin. Even as believers, there are times when we give place to sin. We deserve judgment, but God has extended His mercy to us.

In this Sword of the Spirit 180 video clip, Pastor Scott reminds us how merciful God is toward us in the removing our sin. He reads from Psalm 103 and Isaiah 38 as he speaks of the vastness of God’s forgiveness.

The more we meditate on the longsuffering of God, the more we will appreciate the removal of our sins. What a great truth to know the our sins are separated from us as far as the east is from the west.

Embrace the love of God today. Whenever you feel condemned, remind yourself that God has placed your sins behind His back.

Oh, the incredible love of God!

The Love of God – Calvary Temple VA

One of the Apostle Paul’s recurring prayers for the churches was that the saints “would know the love of God.” Every child of God knows that God loves us. We know that out of His love He sent His Son to redeem us back to Himself.

In this Sword of the Spirit 180 video, Pastor Scott reminds us that the love of God does not end when we fail Him. Our sin or stumbling cannot separate us from the infinite love of God.

Along with the churches of the New Testament writings, we need to know the love of God. We need to comprehend in our spirit how deeply He loves us. The love of God is not able to be comprehended by the natural mind. It must be embraced and believed by faith.

Believe in the love that God has toward you. Rejoice in that love. Meditate on His goodness to us.

Be encouraged today. God loves you.

Regeneration Not By Works – Calvary Temple VA

Whenever you feel that you have failed God, how do you respond? Maybe you committed a sin…maybe your thoughts drew you into some kind of lust…maybe you sense a dryness in your spiritual walk…

How we respond to transgressions says a lot about our relationship with God. In this Sword of the Spirit 180 video clip, Pastor Scott talks about how our thinking affects us, and how by remembering God’s love for us we can be free from condemnation.

Can I remind you of something today? God loved us when we were yet sinners. He is not surprised when we stumble or fall. He is ever merciful, desiring us to walk free from the sins and weights that so easily beset us. God sees us through the finished work of Jesus.

As believers, whenever we sin we should be convicted. Not condemned. Conviction leads us to acknowledge our sin, repent of it, and realize that God has now completely forgiven us.

As you watch this video, let God remind you of the greatness of His love, as well as the power of His salvation in our lives. Be free from condemnation!

Accepted in the Beloved – Calvary Temple VA

The Blood of Jesus. We sing about the blood of Christ. In communion, we partake of that blood. In old-time Pentecostal circles we would “plead the blood.”

In many of our lives, we take the blood of Jesus for granted. It has almost become common to us. I don’t think that we do it necessarily in a casual way, but we don’t spend much time meditating what that blood has afforded us and how great an access we have received to God through the blood of Jesus.

In this Sword of the Spirit 180 video, Pastor Scott reminds us of the blood of Jesus and how great an effect it works in our lives. We can do nothing in our own strength. It is through the blood of Jesus that we are saved, we are made righteous, and that we have the power to take up our cross and follow Him.

As you watch this video clip, meditate on the greatness of the sacrifice of Jesus. He shed His own sinless blood, that we may be accepted in Him. As you meditate, begin to worship Him. Maybe a good song to sing would be –

“There is power, power, wonder working power, in the blood of the Lamb…”

Redeemed: Bought With A Price – Calvary Temple VA

Redeemed.

“For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” 1 Corinthians 6:20

The message of the gospel is simple – we were born into sin, because of the sin of the first man Adam. Mankind is held under the power of sin, totally incapable of becoming free. God loved mankind so much that He gave His Son Jesus to die on this earth, to pay the penalty for the sin of all mankind. When we believe this and submit to His Lordship, we become His child. Simple, yet rich and powerful.

God redeemed us back to Himself. We were once His treasured possession, until Adam rejected God. God so wanted us to be His that He redeemed us (bought us back).

When we become God’s child, we live our lives for His purposes. We live to bring Him glory – in our body (actions) and in our spirit (worship, submission).

In this Sword of the Spirit 180 video, Pastor Scott lays out for us the simplicity of God’s work in us. Listen carefully. Remember how great a work God has done on our behalf. Live for Him, to glorify Him in all things.

Be Encouraged in What Jesus Did – Calvary Temple VA

How often do you get discouraged? Are you discouraged by the world around you? Maybe your discouragement is based on circumstances or on some trial that you are going through.

This earth can be a very discouraging place. Lawlessness is on the increase, disease and famine show no signs of ceasing, and the world is becoming a powder keg. There are “wars and rumors of wars…”

What do you try to do to encourage yourself? Do you watch television, play games, find a way to be entertained, or maybe turn to food for comfort?

Without Jesus, this world is hopeless and is doomed. The Bible tells us that the earth is reeling like a drunken man, and that it is waiting for its day of redemption.

As Christians, we can take great hope in believing that all things are under the control of God. He orders all things, and He is working everything for the good of His Kingdom and of His children.

In this Sword of the Spirit 180 video, Pastor Scott reminds us about the finished work of Jesus’ blood. Only through His work on the cross do we have any hope of strength for today. nor hope for what tomorrow holds. The return of Jesus to redeem us from this earth is truly our “blessed hope.”

Let your heart be encouraged by this video clip. Go to our website and listen to the teaching in its entirety. Allow the Lord to fill you with hope and with a confidence in His love for you. After you do this, drop us a note to share with us what the Lord has done in your life. Testify to His goodness.

Not By Works – Calvary Temple VA

As a child of God, do you often go through times when you don’t feel saved, that you get depressed at how far you feel you are from God?

In this Sword of the Spirit 180 video, Pastor Scott reminds us of the finished work of Jesus. He reminds us that we are justified by God, by faith in the work that Jesus accomplished on the cross.

When we feel less than righteous (right with God), many of us have the tendency to do works – works to make up the gulf we feel is between us and God; works to soothe our consciences.

The work of Jesus is finished. He has forgiven our sins, and He has broken the power of sin in our lives. There is much to rejoice about. Though we don’t feel righteous, we need to believe that “It Is Finished”, that Jesus is victorious over all of sin’s power.

Watch this video carefully. There are some truths in this that will cause you to lift up your head, to remember the goodness of God toward you, and to rejoice in the greatness of our God!
