Standards vs. the Life of Christ
For this week's Spoonful, I'm quoting a piece from the recent Shovel Audio...
My friends, when you were rescued from the domain of darkness, you were also transferred into the kingdom of light. Don't question the reality just because at the same time you were also initiated into a setup brought on by having been left in the arena of your former bondage. At one time, the logic of Christ (which is diametrically opposed to the reasoning of the natural mind) well, it made living sense to you. It was just there. It was so real that you went along with things you cannot explain to this day. Somewhere along the line (which may have been days, weeks, months, or years) somebody pulled you away from the truth of your freedom. Now, when I use the word truth here I don't refer to some kind of doctrinal shift in your belief system, but rather a shift in your mode of operation. For somewhere in your journey, the message of bondage finally broke through so that you once again began to accept those same standards and expectations from which you had been delivered. Once accepted, those standards begin to replace your new-creation outlook.
