We as collective groups as well as individuals have the idea that Gods ideas of things must be like ours. While this is understandable to have that thought it also shows extreme spiritual ignorance and will lead to a god in a box as well as a scripted life of futile effort for unattainable goals according to the Bible.
When a person dies if they were in our “group” we like to say, “oh they were a good person” or something similar to that and according to our group that may very well be true. But this is where we have to face the Grace-Full realities that, “no one is good, not even one!” In fact even Jesus Himself shunned away from the title.
I know if you have read most of what I write this is a little different but it needs to be understood in order to grasp True Grace so bear with me, please.
THERE IS NOTHING GOOD ABOUT ME! THERE IS EVERYTHING PERFECT ABOUT HE WHO LIVES IN ME AND RECONCILED ME TO GOD!
When you get the above statement, you have one of the major building blocks to The True Grace of God! Why? Because understanding this, grasping one past tense word, RECONCILED, means you understand that the reason “Christ is the end of the law for ALL who believe is that “He Who is in me” is Greater than he who is in the world! Once you understand the concept that RECONCILED means you have been completely spiritually healed, set Free from law and expectations and ingrafted into the very Being of God because of Christ Alone; once you see this, The Single Greatest “Gift beyond compare” opens up to you and life will never be the same!
This is Not religious or denominational dogma – this IS. A Free Gift and GraceFull Reality upon which a True Relationship with Christ can and will be built! Anything less is just religious christ-ain’t-ity!
