The Search for Security

Greetings to you who share in the miracle of God’s life. For this life is not held together by the strength of your will, nor of your understanding, nor of any effort you exert! If being “in Christ” was merely a position or a belief held to then losing it would make all the sense in the world. However, being in union with Christ is exactly that: joined to God through Christ. It is the “I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me” … rather than an agreed upon idea based upon the principle of Christ. Don’t you find it rather odd that we have to search the scriptures to find those random verses that SEEM to be calling the whole miracle of Christ into question? On the other hand, isn’t it also odd that we think we have to search the scriptures to find those verses that give us an assurance of our “eternal security”? Perhaps all such searching is what we have learned according to the wisdom of the world, and not from Christ. :) Jim

Random Shovelquote: No differences in Christ (view all shovelquotes)

... in Him there are no differences because His Spirit has truly made us one!! True understanding comes as my measuring sticks keep getting snapped and I once again have my eyes opened to the measureless life of Christ who is MY life.   source
