Be Free, Be Saved

God has been moving in our church.  When a man of God in your life is specific, and reminds you that you will not be saved, you reflect in all areas of your life that you may need to work on. I could easily justify my bitterness and pain with the things I have dealt with the last few years.  And I could make excuses, and live daily with them, but I choose to let go and be free.  There will be no excuses when we meet God.  He has provided us provisions to get through these times and why do we ignore them? If we are bitter and unforgiving, we WILL NOT be saved. How do we know we've truly forgiven and bitterness is gone....when we respond as Christ would.  He forgives our sins and FORGETS.....he doesn't keep reminding us of the past.  He doesn't daily grind at us about our mistakes.  He doesn't stop going to church.  When we can look at the situation, and truly feel no animosity towards the situation,  then we have forgiven.

I want God to call my name....I don't want to go through all this and not make it to heaven.  I woke with this burning in my heart and maybe this is a revelation I've received, but I am telling you with love, that we will not take our excuses and self justifications of why we are the way we are to heaven. There will be no excuses on judgement day. It doesn't matter how good your works have been, or how much you've done in the kingdom of God the last umpteen years. He will not know your name.  Be free.....and be saved.

With all my love!


  1. This is a wonderful post, Sis. Kendrick. I thank you for taking the time to write this and share your thoughts and your heart. It has been on my mind a lot recently how easily we could be lost if we are not honest with ourselves and don't root out those things that could keep us from being saved. You're right - it doesn't matter how many years we have worked for God. We could still be lost if we don't continue to clean out our hearts and get them covered in the Blood of Jesus. Like Paul said, "But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway." (I Corinthians 9:27) This verse in itself does away with the false doctrine of "once saved, always saved." Your post has once again brought this whole subject matter to mind. Thank you! Love you!
