I Am the Bread of Life.. Jhn 6:35

What an extravagant feast was placed in a Bethlehem feeding trough!

GOOD MORNING, CHILD OF THE HIGHER LOVE...
...God's love never says of any human, "I need you, I can't live without you". So when we say it to another human being, it is never true love. But when we say it to God, because He has in pure grace chosen to bestow His love on us, that's true and extravagant love. (1 Jhn 4:19) Likewise when we say to another person, especially our spouse (or intended spouse), "I have chosen to set my unconditional love upon you", that's an extension of God's own love.

"The prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up; if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven." - James 5:15

What is the forgiveness being spoken of here? Are not all our sins already forgiven? Or is this forgiveness from someone against whom we may have sinned? Thanks!

Imagine it's a gloriously sunny day. As you look out on your garden, enjoying the beauty of what you have worked hard to bring about, your eyes are drawn to your favourite statue (yes, you have that kind of garden. Go with it - it's an 'imagine' '! ). But wait! Just behind it, there is a dark patch on the green lawn. Oh, silly, it's only the statue's shadow.

Note - stating the obvious - that it is the substantial object that draws your attention, not the shadow. With the actual thing before your eyes, it would be utterly ludicrous to be taken up with trying to work out what it looked like by 'interpolation', working from what the shadow showed you. Just look - at the substance.

The new covenant describes for us the shape of a life lived in love - with God and with our brothers in Christ. It is Christ-shaped. How futile, then, to insist that we must confine our knowledge by just being content with the shadow - the old covenant law. The shadow makes sense because it is 'cast' by the substance. Just look!

I'm looking forward to rising up nice and early tomorrow morning to begin reading and obeying all 1,050 NT imperatives. At the end of the day, I'll feel less of a worm than all of you who simply walked in the Spirit without a daily list. ... See MoreSee Less

Do we, as new creations, have the choice to put on the new man and to put off the old?

Thanks for the consideration.

Coming, Resting, and Revelling is Repentance

"Come to me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."

Resting in Christ is far more than just ceasing from our labours in pursuing our own self-righteous ideal. It is a complete forsaking of our self-righteous ideal and turning toward the revealed righteousness of God that Christ offers us freely in Himself. Resting is laying hold of His free provision by faith alone, and breathing a giant sigh of satisfaction and relief. Resting is embracing Jesus and discovering that all His promises to you are true and immeasurably more glorious than you had imagined. And it is revelling in the divine blessedness that we were formerly working so hard to earn for ourselves in the ignorance of our religious unbelief.
