One thing we all share is our common disconnection from Perfect Love. The human condition is such that we are all searching for that which would make us complete, that which would tell us we are good, cared for and Loved just as we are despite past mistakes, future worries and present pressures. This then is, if we are to have true and lasting Peace, our firm foundation.
“They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built.” – Luke 6:48
When we dig deep we are seeking to discover what it is that keeps us disconnected from Love. Religion will tell you that it’s what you “do” but Grace will tell you that it is the pain that we mask by what we “do” to cover it up. The reason this is important is that religion can be just another mask for pain alleviation. Grace calls for pain elimination through the understanding of the full value of the cross.
Laying the foundation on The Solid Rock is understanding the full value of the cross by seeing The Perfect Love in what He did, Who He Is and the position that His sacrifice placed us in. When we learn to rest in the full value of what He accomplished we are able to release any and All fear as we know that we have been reconnected with Perfect Love and Nothing can ever separate us from that.
Faith grows in us as we accept the Grace based reality of who we are, Who’s we are and because we see that His Perfect Love for us created this state we can Rest even in the worst storms of life. We can know that the storms are not consequences or punishments but rather gifts to grow greater rest.
It is spiritually, physically and emotionally impossible to create this foundation on the law and our morality. It was designed that way so that we would turn to the cross to see and know His Perfect Love for us.
