LIES JESUS DESTROYED ON THE CROSS

Jesus we thank You that You came to destroy the works of the devil. You overcame the grave and give us truth so we can stand on Your word.

Have you ever stopped to consider how you imagine the tone of God’s voice to be… The truth is, God sent His son Jesus not only to save us from sins but to help us understand His nature. Jesus confirmed this in John 14:7, saying, “If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”

Jesus was speaking to His disciples in this verse, but His words apply to ALL of His followers. The disciples had daily face-to-face interactions with Jesus, so they would have “really known” Jesus, and thus, the Father’s nature. But for those of us who have not yet seen Jesus face to face, we can be more vulnerable to lies that the enemy would have us believe about Him. These five lies can be detrimental to our view of God, and in turn, the outcome of our lives:

God can’t understand or relate to our human nature

Wrong! Hebrews 4:15 teaches that “we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are — yet did not sin.” It’s hard to imagine that God would voluntarily reduce Himself to our human state, subjecting Himself to all of the same pain, frustration and hardships we face, but He DID through Jesus…

God wants to control you with harsh, restrictive rules

I won’t lie and say the rules God tells us to live by are always easy to follow. Of course they’re not! When humans fell to sin, God’s perfect design for us was corrupted and our human nature became disobedient and rebellious, which is why at times God’s instructions for us can feel “unnatural”… Satan wants to keep us trapped in lifestyles that will leave us feeling isolated and empty, but Jesus revealed to us, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10)…

Your way is better than God’s way

This mindset is a cunning craft used by the enemy, hiding in our subconscious while we mask it with phrases like, “I’ll try it God’s way when I’m done having fun” or “I’m just too busy to make time for God.” The list of excuses goes on, but what it really boils down to is the acceptance of our sinful habits as the normal, and even preferred, state of being. People can get so comfortable in the darkness, they believe it’s where they belong. But God created all of us to live in the light that only Jesus can provide. He reminded us, “You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness” (1 Thessalonians 5:5)…

You can never change

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” (2  Corinthians 5:17). God sent Jesus to die for our sins so that we may all walk in freedom and one day live face-to-face with Him again, just as He created us…
