“If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels.” – Mark 8:38
Isn’t it interesting that Jesus said, “me and my words” and not the law and the legal words?
The reason Jesus had to be killed by the religious leaders then is the same reason that religious leaders still kill Him today – He created by His Love and One Perfect Sacrifice a direct path to God, a relationship with God and an end to the law for All who would simply Believe!
This is why it is the single most imperative realization and understanding that you will ever make to grasp that “His Grace IS sufficient for me” – His Grace Made you complete at the moment you Believed! Yes that Is the past tense of make!
You are no longer under the law, you are under Grace and where there is no law neither is there transgression!
Is He still working in us? YES – Absolutely! To create more Peace, Love, Hope, Joy and an Abundant Life Here and Now – but NOT to make you more of a rule follower!
Jesus didn’t come to say “hang in there with the law”, “do a better job on the top ten” or “work harder you sluggers” – NO!
He came to take away ALL condemnation, shame and guilt – this will never happen if you stay under the law which IS “the power of sin”!
