The Right Prayer For Repentance From Sin by 5thAngel: 6:59am On Jan 05
I have a friend, who from her lifestyle, I know is born again. She was initially like me, religious but not saved from sin. Then she gave her life to Chris and since then, it seems she made new enemies. Our course mates don't like her because she is the odd one and mocks her anytime she preaches in class.

I, however, have been challenged by the new life she has. I've watched her grow spiritually and i want that Christ-like life for myself also.
Hence, i summoned courage to ask her how she remained in the faith as I have been besotted with rising and falling. Then she told me something.

If you really want to be saved and remain save you have to pray, not because of the fear of hell but pray because you desire a change in your life. You foremost have to crave a righteous life and pray, with faith,for forgiveness with this intention.
I got the message alright but I did not act on it.

My prayer for repentance have always been centered on the fear of hell, which i am 100 per center sure exist.

But God in his infinite mercy showed me a dream reiterating everything grace said. He showed me how to pray this prayer, which i found myself in this dream praying. I noticed that after the prayer, I felt the joy,peace and calmness i have always craved for and heard other people testify of.

show me one man who have perfectly kept the law.

the Bible say in 1 John 1 . IF WE WALK in the light as he is in the light we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.

what does walking in the light mean ? Walking in the light must mean that you are aware when you do sin you are not blind and dark to it. You see it. Verse nine. If we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive our sins. And he has just said if we walk in the light you get a cleansed fro your sin. and now he is saying if you confess your sins he is faithful and just to forgive your sins and cleanse you from all
unrighteousness. So confessing sins must be a part of walking in the light.

Most people repent due to fear of hell rather than genuine love for God.

Remove Hellfire and most Christians will be full Marlians

The following article on the Book, FULL ASSURANCE, by Harry Ironside, will help someone, not only in finding true faith in Christ, but holding tight to the assurance Christ gives those who come to Him



I recommend the article - and others - to everyone God draws to His Son





There is nothing like knowing that you are saved, if you are.




And there is nothing like knowing you are not being self-deceived, too.

When the rich man asked Jesus what shall he do to enter the kingdom of God, Jesus didn't tell him to walk in the light. Shebi you know that verse?

And Job was blameless. Read the beginning verses of Job.

I also pity the girl if she lets the mockery get to her. Those who doubt the presence and the power of God are just ignorant.

U think evolution led to the perfect planet capable of producing life, perfect distance from the sun and oxygen for life, the only planet with life and u think it just happened like that? grin

I no longer argue or try to convince atheists, they should wallow in ignorance, so quote me with doubts and be ignored. tongue

It could truly be annoying someone disturbing u with preaching when u feel relaxing before or after lectures, same applies in commercial vehicles. The worst is depriving neighbours to sleep in the name of vigil.
If Jesus himself were to be the judge, I'm sure he will judge fairly and u will be guilty of all these.

There's no single human being on earth that love GOD.
50% serve God cuz of fear of hell
30% cuz of heaven promise
20% cuz of protection.

My people perish because of lack of wisdom.

If you wanna preach:
The street is there
The church is there
After class you meet them outside

The early disciples and Jesus himself were preaching in the streets, mount, beach and synagogue, not in classroom.

class is meant for reading, studying, receiving lectures not for preaching gospels, if she does not to be mocked she should preach where it is specified for christian religious affairs.
