LIfe

Are you born again, not of the flesh but of the spirit?  The Christian experience is one of having a new heart, a new mind, a new life within us.  Are you living in this new reality.

Jesus promises us an abundant life.  In the Garden of Eden man had unlimited access to the tree of Life.  Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.  When was the last time you heard a sermon about the reality of the life that is in you?

Much of our religious experience is external.  We have rules to follow that assure us that we are good Christians growing in faith and in power.  Love God, love neighbor and spread the Gospel is our duty.  Of course the power to do these things never seems to be all that it should and we know deep within our spirit that we are really not following these rules as best we could.  We seek the “purpose driven” life and not the Christ empowered life.  We ask “what would Jesus do” rather than acting on the reality of Christ in us.  We spend more time worrying about our sin and our dying flesh than we do resting in the reality of what God has made us to be and the work that He is accomplishing in and through us.

Go to any Christian seminar and most Bible studies and you will accumulate all kinds of tools for walking our Christian walk more powerfully, effectively, morally, etc.  We walk out determined to do all that we have learned and then those things fade.  We loose our passion and get frustrated with all the minutia.  There is no power in this kind of living, it is derived from law not life.  The law will give you all the rules to follow and then demonstrate to you that you can not keep those rules.  That is what the law does, it is God’s design.

We have chosen Christ. We no longer are slaves to the law.  We are free to be all that Christ has made us.  He has sent His Spirit as a guide, a councilor in walking in the reality of this new life.  You indeed have a new heart, a new mind, a new life within you that is totally sold out to God.  No rules, only life.  Take a breath, relax, and walk in what is more real than you know.  God will reveal Himself to you and you will experience a joy and freedom you have never known before.

Christ in you the hope of glory.
