The greatest hurdle that LOVE has to jump is over the very one for which LOVE heals All, man in particular man’s ego. The challenge is that man refuses to Rest and is therefore on a constant spiritually suicidal path that results in religion or other addictions.
“Moses writes this about the righteousness that is by the law: “The person who does these things will live by them.” But the righteousness that is by faith says: “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’ ” (that is, to bring Christ down) “or ‘Who will descend into the deep?’ ” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).” – Romans 10:5-7
Religious Christians have a difficult time explaining this passage and for a very good reason – religious Christianity teaches you to focus on questions like, “Who will ascend into heaven?” or “Who will descend into the deep?” because religious Christianity is All about the law, legalism and human effort with a discounted cross at best.
Grace removes the hurdle of man’s ego by equalizing us all on an equal level, sinners, broken and in pain spiritually. The reason why Christ is “the end of the law” as we saw in “LOVES End” is that we have to accept in Faith that He Alone healed us by His Sacrafice on the cross. We can’t see ourselves “Reconciled” and “Justified” and wHOLeY – we just Rest in the knowledge that it’s true.
Even Moses Rested in Not living by law. He knew that the Faith that it took for Him to go from his comfortable life as a farmer back to the place he ran from to tell them that a God they didn’t believe in wanted them to release all the slaves – that this Faith is Exactly what made him in right standing with God.
The law was Never designed to give you Rest or Peace – but the broken pieces that the law produces will All work together for good if you have Faith that Christ Alone is enough. “His Grace Is Sufficient for me!”
