Can non-acceptance cause a spiritual roadblock?
Are the obstacles you face there for a reason?
Is it possible that Jesus was the first being under grace and therefore set an example?
Please read Hebrews 12:2-3
Vs. 1 “And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before Him He endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider Him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”
Does faith and trust between people grow without difficulty?
So too spiritual growth and life with Love. There is a path and a road and it is not easy if it was no one would need to ask for help. But isnt asking for help what spiritual growth is? Doesnt having needs create a desire to know more about Jesus?
No, not always. In fact many times this is exactly what takes someone away from God isnt it?
There are so many “things” and “philosophies” out there that look good and sound good but here is my test on them. Do the things you believe in create more Love through you?
It is so easy to become calloused and to get out of the race that is causing growth and allowing faith to develop in us. This is why the Bible talks about Jesus as a “pioneer and perfecter of faith.”
You dont need faith to follow a stone tablet- just do what it says. But Jesus was the first being to live “by Grace” and if we follow His example of Love our faith will grow. It will not grow because we try to be more holy- it will grow as we learn from the difficulties we face the lessons that He has for us and lean on the fact that He is stronger than those obstacles.
Isnt that what faith is and always was- He has it so dont worry just Love one another like He did- without judgment. Love like He did without condemnation and shame.
The race set before you is not the race set before me I have obstacles and things that I need to grow through just like you have other obstacles you need to grow through. This is why we cannot judge only Love and help others see the obstacles as lessons. The option is a cold calloused heart that eventually hates anything to do with God and Love.
Dont Worry- Be Love!
