Reading this is something that has become more real to me everyday… If I had to follow a ton of regulations and laws to get there, I would be the last one in the throng of people trying to attain! I has been a while since I last posted, a lot has happened, but one thing I know is that God is totally in love with me! I wish that words could express the love that I feel from Him all the time. When I say love, I mean unconditional, everlasting, precious, intimate love that He wants to show me everyday.
It is always said that we know that we trust God with our very being when things get tough, on the contrary, when things are bad we do not have a choice, we run to Him. When you step out and do something that you might consider a sin, do you trust His unconditional love at that point, or do you take the traditional christian approach and beat yourself up with condemning thoughts and accusations. Of course we know that the accuser is the devil himself and no one else, aided by your flesh to bring you into condemnation. Romans 8:1 “There is now no condemnation to those that are in Christ Jesus” I believe, I mean it looks like it to me, that the word no there means no, really! That is the victory that overcomes everything, the freedom in Christ Jesus. What a thrilling and blessed thought that His unconditional love is genuine and works in all of us… We do not sit in condemnation or fear, we sit at the right hand of the Father with Jesus in power, strength, whole and righteous. I John 4:17 says that as He is, so are we in this world. Just look at how He is, full of glory, righteous and full of power, raised from the dead and endowed with everything His Father has. SO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD! Enough of this religious faking it until it gets real! It is real!
He wants to have an intimate relationship with you more than anyone else in the world, and He paid the ultimate price to get it! Accept that, live in it, walk in it, and show the world what a God we have!!!
