Another dig from my wife: GOD knows the reality of the heart that man only thinks he sees and knows. The New Creation of GOD in Christ has the heart and mind of Christ and is growing in the very Nature of GOD
When the daily grind of this world convinces you that your reality is defined by what you perceive with your physical eyes and ears, let the words of this prayer bring some needed relief:
What many Christian leaders have done with the truth of Christ is akin to performing an autopsy. They’ve taken that which is alive and have killed it, laid it out on a slab and cut it open … all in the attempt to figure out what makes it tick
Those of God hear the words of God even though they may challenge you to your face, but leave that up to the Spirit for He is doing His work. This means you never have to get into religious games and debates. Speak the words of life
Forgiveness is a miraculous release given by God. No, not just the fact that God no longer holds my sins against me, but that he has also taken every other sin out of the way so there is nothing left for me to hold against another. To know Christ’s love for me and not to see this is to live as insane.
The bogus battle waged in the mind of the flesh is the only thing that would cause me to fear myself, for in seeing who I really am I see HIM.
One of the traditional warnings used against the message of grace comes in the form of an ominous sounding accusation that's guaranteed to create fear in the hearts of hungry believers. The frightening indictment is antinomianism, and I suspect that the very sound of the word has scared off a good number of folks who haven't a clue as to what an antinomian really is but only fear becoming one of its unwitting victims
The answer to your Biblical dilemmas is not found in your being able to answer all the Biblical questions that are used to contradict the life of Christ in you, because those questions will never stop
Wherever grace shows up, the voice of reason prepares itself for battle. Sometimes that voice comes from those we recognize as legalists, but more often than not the objection to grace comes from our own thoughts
Many who hold official positions in today’s churches and other institutions stand upon qualifications that are based upon the opinions of those considered important by those who consider themselves important. And if that describes you, I encourage you to reconsider what it means to stand upon the one and only qualification, which is the very spirit of Christ.
