The challenge with Grace is that a person has to be willing to accept dead love for Living Love and this is the journey of Faith that most never make especially the religious. Dead love is tangible, it can be seen, touched and used in the physical sense But it doesn’t supply all our needs and will not grow Faith in His Grace.
“Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven. Your ancestors ate manna and died, but whoever feeds on this bread will live forever.” He said this while teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum.” – John 6:57-59
The words Jesus shared were said at a synagogue and that alone was enough to get Him killed or at the very least cause extreme concern.
Because Jesus constantly pushed the boundaries of the religious comfort zone of that day just like Grace pushes it today. Because God doesn’t want or need our sacrifices what He craves is to Love us, show us the boundless nature of that Love and Fellowship with us in the dance of Grace!
The love that the Jews and all religious people know of is based on physical needs. A need to “feel” right or special with God. The Love that Jesus showed us in Gods Only Son being sacrificed on the cross so that All may be made wHOLeY and reconnected with God isn’t about feelings or having our daily physical needs, wants and dreams fulfilled.
The Love, Perfect Love that was seen through Christ was, is and always will be about Resting in the Faith based understanding and knowledge that what Christ did was enough! “His Grace is sufficient” we don’t need to do any more, the purpose of the law is “finished” once we turn to Him as our sacrifice for ALL our sins!
Let go of your past – He already has!
Let go of your future – He already has it!
Live in The Living Love Here and Now – “By Grace through Faith” Perfect Love and Rest in The God Who Is Love beyond human understanding!
