Our Primary Motive
Like Jesus, our primary motive in life should always be to please our heavenly Father.
28 Then Jesus said, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he, and I do nothing on my own initiative, but I speak just what the Father taught me. 29 And the one who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone, because I always do those things that please him.” (John 8:28-29 NET)
Ours is a Ministry and a Message of Reconciliation.
18 And all these things are from God who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and who has given us the ministry of reconciliation. 19 In other words, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting people’s trespasses against them, and he has given us the message of reconciliation. (2 Cor 5:18-19 NET)
This includes ongoing reconciliation and sanctification of born again believers!
Jesus, Bring Us to the Father
Jesus replied, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6 NET)
Jesus, Reveal the Father to Us
All things have been handed over to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son decides to reveal him. (Matt 11:27 NET)
There are two concepts that determine the victory and fruitfulness of a Christian. The first concept is maturity. Paul wrote: "We are to grow up in all aspects into Him, who is the head, even Christ to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ" (Ephesians 4:15,13). God has given us everything we need to grow to maturity in Christ (2 Peter 1:3). But Satan is opposed to our maturity and will do anything he can to keep us from realizing who we are and what we have in Christ. We must experience victory over the dark side before we can fully mature.
The second concept of the successful Christian life is freedom. Paul declared: "It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery" (Galatians 5:1). This verse not only assures us that God wants us free, but also warns us that we can lose our freedom by returning to the law.
Before we received Christ, we were slaves to sin. But because of Christ's work on the cross, sin's power over us has been broken. Satan has no right of ownership or authority over us. He is a defeated foe, but he is committed to keeping us from realizing that. He knows he can block your effectiveness as a Christian if he can deceive you into believing that you are nothing but a product of your past, subject to sin, prone to failure, and controlled by your habits. As long as he can confuse you and blind you with his dark lies, you won't be able to see that the chains which once bound you are broken. You are free in Christ, but if the devil can deceive you into believing you're not, you won't experience the freedom which is your inheritance. I don't believe in instant maturity, but I do believe in instant freedom, and I have seen thousands of people set free by the truth. Once a person is free, you would be amazed at how quickly he or she matures!
Lord, I rejoice that it was for my freedom that You came to set me free. Remind me today to walk in Your freedom.

Restoring Freedom to God's Children
We help fellow Christians fully realize their glorious freedom as God's children in Christ Jesus.
...the glorious freedom of God's children (Roman 8:21)
For freedom Christ has set us free. (Galatians 5:1)
“Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance, and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God”.
God offers us complete spiritual freedom. Our responsibility is to acknowledge and confess our sin (1 John 1:9) and the lies we have believed (2 Thes 2:7-12) and repent by turning away from our sin (Acts 20:26...), resisting temptations and accusations (James 4:7...) and exposing deceptions by believing the truth (John 8:32...).
True and False Repentance
2 Corinthians 7:9-11
"For sadness as intended by God produces a repentance that leads to salvation, leaving no regret, but worldly sadness brings about death."
We could argue that worldly sorrow/sadness/regret response might be: "Aah you caught me! I had hoped to keep it hidden."
versus a godly sorrow response which should be more like this:
"Thank you Lord for exposing my sin and it saddens me deeply when I realize how much it actually hurts me, the person or persons involved and most importantly You who actually died a horrible death so my sins would not be counted against me. I choose right here and now to take responsibility for my sin and I choose to stop this sin which has caused a strain, even a degree of spiritual death and separation, in our relationship."
