THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST IS THE POWER OF GOD UNTO SALVATION:

THE devil BLINDS THE MINDS OF THE PEOPLE, SO THAT THEY WILL NOT BELIEVE THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST AND THEN HE WILL TAKE THEM CAPTIVE AT HIS WILL:

John 12:40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them. (KJV)
THE devil ATTACKS THE MIND WITH SINFUL THOUGHTS,SIN HAS ITS ROOT IN THE MIND, THE MIND IS A BATTLEFIELD:
James 1:14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust and enticed. (KJV)
James 1:15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. (KJV)
Eph 2:3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. (KJ
OUR MINDS MUST BE RENEWED BY THE WORD OF GOD :
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (KJV)
Eph 4:23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;(KJV)
Eph 4:24 And that you put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. (KJV)
CHRIST, THROUGH THE SPIRIT IN OUR HEARTS, WILL CHANGE THE DESIRES OF OUR MINDS:
2 Cor 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; (KJV)
Matt 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. (KJV)
1 Cor 2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
1Pet 1:13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; (KJV)
CHRIST WITHIN US BREAKS THE POWER OF SIN IN OUR LIVES:
Col 1:21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicket works,yet now hath HE reconciled [KJV).
Romans 6:11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. (KJV)
Romans 13:14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof. (KJV)

WHEN YOU ASK JESUS TO COME IN YOUR HEARTH HE BREAKS THE POWER OF SIN IN YOUR LIFE, YOU DO NOT WANT TO SERVE SIN ANYMORE [IN THE MIND AND FLESH] BUT YOU BECOME A SERVANT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS BECAUSE OF HIS SPIRIT WHICH IS IN YOU, AS THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF CHRIST IS NOW IN YOUR HEART BY FAITH:
Rom 6:13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. (KJV)
Rom 6:18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. (KJV)
READ AND STUDY ROMANS CHAPTER 5 AND 6.
ASK JESUS IN YOUR HEART TODAY AND RECEIVE HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS WITHIN YOU WHICH BREAKS THE POWER OF SIN AND DEATH FROM YOUR LIFE:
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
(KJV) Heb 2:9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. (KJV)
IT IS GODS GRACE AND YOU RECEIVE IT BY FAITH:
Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: (KJV)
Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace
with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: (KJV)
Shall we pray together :
