There is One Way to Righteousness and that is “by Grace through Faith” but the real question s why has it always been that way. Why is it that God made us so that the law drives us to Christ, but is Not a sign of true righteousness?
“Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.” – 2 Corinthians 9:10-11
What harvest do you know that increases the more you give it away?
Grace-Full living never runs out and it in fact grows as we give it away! Not so for trying to get someone to follow a legal regime that I myself can’t follow!
Christ wants us God dependent not self-dependent which is what the law produces!
The more you Love without conditions the more He places His Love in you and through you. The more you try to get others and yourself to live a moral code, the more you bang your head against a wall.
This passage is not talking about generosity of money- I am convinced that God will meet my needs but I am equally convinced that He would rather me be physically broke and not a penny to my name if it means I will remain in fellowship with Him.
Give Love and Give Kindness and Give Grace- and in this way you are the light of the world just like Christ was and your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. This is how the light spreads not through “doing rules” but through Loving all He puts in your path!
I was never thankful when I didn’t “not do” something. But when I came to Grace and suddenly realized the extent of His gift and the more He shines His perfect Love through me- the more Love He places there.
Find a time and a place when you probably won’t be disturbed, but if you are, know that it is an opportunity to Love and learn. Start by taking a few deep breathes and with every exhale just relax a bit more, be a bit more still and know that He is God. Once you are a bit more relaxed just breathe regularly and:
Breathe in and say:
Breathe out and say:
Practice this until you can rest in the fact that His planting, growing and harvesting is all about the Love from Above that He wants to flow freely through you!
