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: Realize the freedom (view all shovelquotes)

How can you realize the freedom you have in Christ? I say that you will discover it, more times than not, in the midst of the bondage that still seems to hold you down. You see, the power of the gospel is not found merely in the words of its testimony of Jesus’ death and resurrection, it is found in the reality that has been brought about because of who he is and what he has done. That reality is that Christ is in you. He is there, and his life witnesses from within you … despite all the doubts that you think actually come from within you. source
