My Messiah? – 6
Is He Enough?
Was what He Finished enough?
These two burning questions have been like a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night for me in my journey of GraceFull growing.
“But he was pierced for our transgressions,he was crushed for our iniquities;the punishment that brought us peace was on him,and by his wounds we are healed.” – Isaiah 53:5
Did Christ, in what He Finished on the cross, give us fear, pain and worry or Freedom, Hope and Grace?
I know the “party line” of “well because I love Jesus it makes me want to follow the law” – the problem is this simply isn’t Biblically sound. Jesus said, “if you love me you will keep my commandments”, the interesting thing here is that “His commandments” are simply this, “Love!”
Love is a lifelong growth process and while I still pretty well suck at it God has and is holding me as I grow in it. Law on the other hand is a lifelong hamster wheel of effort and failure that has Never worked for Anyone, “not even one!”
So again the key question to finding His True Grace is “Did Jesus Finish the job?” Did Jesus End our “stuck-ness” to the law by “Grace through Faith”?
Is Christ Really, “the end of the law for All that believe?” (Romans 10:4)
