Because I know I’m a Christian

OPEN YOUR HEART

Because I know I’m a Christian … I’m proclaiming that I’m one in Christ Jesus, that I was lost, Now I’m found, I repented and now I’m forgiven and because of my heart-felt thankfulness I seek to be Clean living by the power of the Holy Spirit and in Christ Jesus I have been set free from the power of sin over me.

 
John 8:34-36 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
 
1 John 3:9 No one who is Born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been Born of God.
 
Romans 6:18-20 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
 
 Because I know I’m a Christian … I’m proud to be called by that name because it means I have Jesus Christ within and I take pride of my position and Unity in Him.
 
1John 4:16-17 And we have known and believed the Love that God hath to us. God is Love; and he that dwelleth in Love dwelleth in God, and God in him. Herein is our Love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world.
 
Romans 6:5-7 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of His death, we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin.
 
Because I know I’m a Christian … I’m no longer trying to be strong because it’s the Lord’s strength that will carry me along and when at times I see weaknesses God’s understanding and refining I do seek then I never need to be in dismay because God’s Love rules all I do and say.
 
1John 3: 6-8 whosoever abideth in Him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him.
 
Because I know I’m a Christian … I’m Lifting God on High not bragging of my success or the good things that I do knowing that alone I will fail, but because of God’s Love  He will see me through and will  bring Glory through the things He has prepared in advance for me to do.
 
2 Timothy 2:19-21 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are His. And, let every one that nameth the Name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the Master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.
 
Because I know I’m a Christian … I’m seeking to be perfect because although my flaws are visible one day they will be no more…Jesus knocked and I opened up the door. Did God believe I was worth it when He died upon the tree yes even knowing I was deep in sin He still came to set me free.
 
Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in Heaven is perfect.
 
Hebrews 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
 
2Timothy 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
 
1 John 4:17-19 Herein is our Love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in Love; but perfect Love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in Love. We Love Him, because He first Loved us.
 
Because I know I’m a Christian … I still feel the sting of pain but I no longer carry any shame and in my heart there is Joy although things may stay the same but I have the Lord’s Peace because I call upon His name.
 
1John 5: 14 – 15 And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will, He heareth us And if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him.
 
Because I know I’m a Christian … I know I don’t walk alone and the strength to live the Christian Life is given not owned as at  the cross I sit at Christ’s feet .
 
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 
 
Colossians 2:6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in Him:
 
Because I know I’m a Christian … I seek to be Holy just as the Lord asks us to be by following Jesus who died to set us free. In every thing God’s does and says His Love is the Light that guides me on my way.
 
Romans 6: 22-23 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
 
Because I know I’m a Christian … Although in my flesh a  sinner I would be but I no longer seek this way because through the Spirit it’s no longer part of me, Christ nailed it to the tree and now I have God’s power to Trust and Obey and I never have to wonder how all this can be because God’s Love in Grace pardoned me.
 
1 Peter 2:24 Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
 
Romans 6:11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
 
Because I know I’m a Christian … When others are in real need I do not procrastinate, find excuses or push them away but I obey and  trust in the Lord to supply, equip and strengthen me for whatever it may be that is needed from me.
 
Proverbs 31:9 Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.
 
Proverbs 29:7 The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: but the wicked regardeth not to know it.
 
Because I know I’m a Christian… I seek in Love to warn those who sin and go astray knowing that sin leads to fear and shame even if claimed their forgiven in Jesus’ name.
 
2 Timothy 4:2-3 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
 
Luke 17:3 Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.
 
Because I know I’m a Christian… a testing time will be part of my preparation for Eternity but  through the trial The Lord will keep me strong because to Him I belong, Satan will never have the upper hand because in Christ Jesus I stand.
 
1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
 
1John 5:18-20  We know that no one who is Born of God sins; but He who was Born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him.   We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one. And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.
 
Because I know I’m a Christian… I don’t fear God’s wroth, He does not afflict me so I’ll obey He gives me strength to walk in Jesus each day to live righteously His way.
 
Lamentations 3: 33 For He doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.
 
1John 3:7  Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous. 
 
Because I know I’m a Christian … I’m saying I have counted the cost and have chosen to follow Jesus regardless of the sacrifice or loss. I know that the Lord leads the way bringing me to perfection everyday until in His image I will stay.
 
John 15:9-11  As the Father hath Loved me, so have I Loved you: continue ye in my Love. If ye keep my Commandments, ye shall abide in my Love; even as I have kept my Father’s Commandments, and abide in His Love.
 
1 John 2:4-6 He that saith, I know Him, and keepeth not His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.  But whoso keepeth His word, in him verily is the Love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in Him. He that saith he abideth in Him ought himself also so to walk, even as He walked.
 
Daniel 12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
 
2 Corinthians 13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in Peace; and the God of Love and Peace shall be with you.

  1. “Because I know I’m a Christian …
    I still feel the sting of pain
    but I no longer carry any shame
    and in my heart there is Joy
    although things may stay the same
    but I have the Lord’s Peace
    because I call upon His name.”
    Lovely rhymes!
    Your words are edifying, Grannie Annie and your selection of scriptures are uplifting.
    Thanks much for sharing.
    Regards to Ron!

    • Dear Son you have Barnabas heart, your always seeking to encourage others, you are as I said before, a very kind young man, who deeply cares for others, you bless me greatly not just for your uplifting words, although I do value them but because of the degree you are loyal and commited in your heart to what is just, fair and good, God bless you greatly for your faithfulness.

      To be honest Son, I rhyme without trying to and yet it is something that people who are Dyslestic like me find very hard to do. The part that you coypied was in referance to my life time disability, some of which God has now healed me of but at times I still feel pain but I know it is no longer caused by my sin as was some of my other life threating conditions which God healed me of after I came to heart repentance 16 years ago. I will never take my sin lightly but I no longer have any shame.

      Although in the Church for many years before and many would have said I was a good Christian woman, I did not know God as I do now or how to be close to Him like I am today and so I lost my way but Jesus rescued me or I would not be writing this to you now, thanks for visiting Son and I’m pleased you enjoyed the cuppa and cake.

      Christian Love from us both – Anne.

    • Thanks Darrell for your uplifting encouragement, I felt the need to update this Post just after I published it for all who know they are Christians but while I was doing so you commented but perhaps it is meant to be, I will leave both of them on my Blog as I value your support very much.

        • We felt the same about you Darrell with your wonderful heart graphics, perhaps because we hear Jesus’ voice talking to us through them by His inspired words in the Scriptures, The Truth does set us free that is if we are willing to listen and apply His Truth to our lives. I believe your visuals leave no room for doubt, I’m going to use my faviourite one soon, I noticed your wife uses them too, it seems your both gifted in this very special way.

          Thanks for visiting Darrell – Christian Love from both of us – Anne.
