When I was in the pit of depression I had no idea that what got me there was the very thing that was supposed to create Joy, Peace, Hope and Love beyond any that I could conceive. This is why it is a passion for me to write because I have seen the enemy and it is our perception.
“He also told them this parable: “Can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into a pit? The student is not above the teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like their teacher.” – Luke 6:39-40
Just after Jesus said, “Do not judge” and “Do not condemn” He made this statement all within the listening ear of the teachers of the law. Coincidence?
If you do Not know the purpose of the law, the pit will be your home, self righteousness will be your primary character trait and depression and anxiety will be your constant companions. This is why I urge people to study “Let the Journey Begin” on BeGraceFull.com and this is why I challenge people to break through “LOVES fungus” which I shared last time.
To get a clear picture of what Christ sought for us to be it’s important to see the next verse in this passage:
“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?” – Luke 6:41
We were Never called to be law policemen and establish morality throughout the world, But we were Repeatedly encouraged to “Love one another” and in that easy burden and light yoke IS the end of the pit.
ABUNDANT LIFE starts with Christ because He Is the end of the law for the start of Faith in what He Finished on the cross!
