I have learned that Jesus is Enough, that Love “Finished” the battle of making me Holy but the battle of me accepting it is where Loves Battle is while I am enmeshed in this human body.
Grace “Reconciled” us. Grace “Redeemed” us. Grace “Justified” us. “Grace Is Sufficient” but that doesn’t keep the evil one from trying to remind us of every mistake, try to cause us to feel guilt and shame and basically create a joyless existence Here and Now.
We Must know the battle and the battle is to Rest in what has been “Finished” while remembering that even our darkest most hurting parts are Loved with Perfect Love by The One Who Created All and Holds All together.
The religious Pharisees will tell you the battle is to follow the law they prescribe … this is the battle of churches, temples and mosques all around the world.
