Because Love covers a multitude of sins, I will not nullify the Grace of God! Love, Agape Love, the pinnacle, the meaning of The One Who Is Love is Jesus Christ. Without Jesus, Love in its purest form, in its essence does not exist.
Learning what He means to surrender to Him, relinquish all of myself, to recognize and confess that this is not my natural bent but to be self reliant, that to trust in me and others is natural to me but the ability to trust in The Creator of The Universe, not normal, in fact completely supernatural. Trusting in myself and others seems absolutely foolish when I think about it, so think I must so that I will remember my God, The powerful, omnipotent, all knowing God. I will Trust in God and proclaim His faithfulness without which I would not know Love, The Christ that covered all my sins. He is a God of All Grace and It’s ALL Grace
Like Pharoah, I was delusionally and seemingly in control, it was my way or the highway, the greatest form of idolatry and sin we all have naturally, It’s pretty clear this happens without thought!
Then stepped in The One Jesus…The Way, the Truth And The Life Who was and still is The only One able to set me free from myself, my sin, my chains. 10 years ago, I didn’t have to learn the hard way, I heard His voice and stepped out of the boat (after 33 years of my way), onto the water.. But in these last ten years growing in the grace and knowledge of The Lord Jesus Christ, I have grown in Spiritual maturity by The Power of The Holy Spirit to understand that as He has set me free, therefore, I can let my people go free too! What a gracious God! This is the truest form of The Gospel… knowing what and who Jesus came to save us from. Our sin, our flesh, our self-reliance. We cannot escape apart from Jesus Christ. If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved! Roman’s 10:9 And God in His mercy provided The Way! God is powerful, infinite in wisdom, all knowing, Creator of the heavens and the earth, and creator of us, He knows why everything happens to you and He knows what you need more than you know yourself. The gift of all Gifts is Trusting in Him, rather than in a flawed, self reliant, finite trust of ourselves. When we Fully Trust Him, then only then are we able to Fully obey Him. Christian, His mercy on us is bestowing this ability to do this! He could have left us wallowing in our own sinfulness, our own disastrous way.
Oh blessed Redeemer, Your Faithfulness continues, take over our lives, do with us as You Will! To proclaim I no longer have fear of man or circumstances is a beautiful Grace because they draw me closer to You and what Greater Gift is there! To cling to The Rock of my Salvation, to come Hide in You, The Refuge, Receive Your Strength and Your ever present help in my time of need! You are my all in all, my everything. It’s all yours, nothing is mine, you gave it all.
God is changing His people and this is what it looks like…
My old self has been crucified with Christ.[a] It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I do not treat the grace of God as meaningless. For if keeping the law could make us right with God, then there was no need for Christ to die.
