My desire is to grapple together here over how well off we are with God through Christ,
and to live from His opinion of us.
Then I mightn't have anything to fret over and feel guilty about.
I'd say it's a WONDER-filled life then!!
Rejoice, receive, give thanks, enjoy, be glad, rest, love, replicate.
Then tomorrow will be much like today - free, fun, & empowered experiencing & expressing Christ as Life! Thanks for the encouragement, Ralph!
This is very interesting to me because I have spent the last several months considering just that. NOT that I believe I am no longer a sinner, but because although I began to trust God a long time ago, I never felt worthy of receiving his love until the last few months. And since I've come to realize I am, his providence and abundance in my life are evident. Still working on the learning to "rest" in it...
Then you truly live by grace - not enslaved to sin anymore. Then you truly are a NEW creation, under new authority. Then you can really claim that you know the truth and the truth set you free!
My goodness, are people expressing themselves beautifully today. Hooray for authenticity!
SIMPLY >---------> GLORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Amen Ralph! FREEDOM! Release, Rest, and Receive...took me over 20 years to learn this is what our Life IN Christ consisits of and Romans, Hebrews, and Philippians all confirm it! (Romans 12:1-2, Hebrews 3:7-4:11, and Philippians 3:15-16)
Pure trust in My Father God! And ALL the Love, Joy, Grace, Rest, Wisdom and Freedom is poured ON me and IN ALL the rest of my days! YES!!!!
It is conquered, and praise God I can rest and trust and play in Papa's fields.. whoo hoo
I have received and I am now spending my days unwrapping this wonderful gift of grace.
