The Final Freedom in Christ Is Right Here and Right Now! For most it takes a lifetime to figure it out IF they figure it out at all! It is always amazing to me how many Christians say they know they are no longer under the law and yet they find comfort in performing the law!
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” – Matthew 11:28-30
Jesus wept! The shortest verse in the Bible and yet one of the most telling when it deals with His mission – Why?
Jesus wept because Jerusalem was under the yoke of the law just like most Christians today although far less so. Still Christians today will go with comfort laws – these are the laws they can follow comfortably and when they mess up they either feel shame and guilt which is what the law is supposed to give. Then they weep a wail and promise to do a better job even though the idea of doing a better job keeping the law was never one Jesus said you “should” do! In fact Jesus never “shoulded” on anyone except the religious leaders!
Jesus came to give you Perfect rest – right Here and Now – the work has been done – Now rest in Him! The more dependent you are in Christ Alone the more you are under Grace and Not law!
This is the point where the typical legalist says, “Well some will use Grace then as a license to sin” – yes some will – but that is between them and God! A sin once in Christ is not breaking a law you are no longer under – it’s being unloving, its thinking of yourself first and not being focused on Love! Remember Christ said, “Love others as I have loved you and in so doing fulfill All the law and the prophets!”
A Love growth process is ongoing and will take you to your last breath as part of a Love growth is learning to let go of what is for the knowledge of His Great Love for you! Knowing that He Loves you and has Everything in His perfect control is the last thing a Grace-Full being thinks about as they are exhaling for the last time.
