Home is where The God Is!
“1This is what the LORD says: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. Where is the house you will build for me? Where will my resting place be? 2Has not my hand made all these things, and so they came into being?” declares the LORD. “These are the ones I look on with favor: those who are humble and contrite in spirit, and who tremble at my word. 3But whoever sacrifices a bull is like one who kills a person, and whoever offers a lamb is like one who breaks a dog’s neck; whoever makes a grain offering is like one who presents pig’s blood, and whoever burns memorial incense is like one who worships an idol. They have chosen their own ways, and they delight in their abominations;”
God Never made His home in the hearts of the religious and He Never will! Why can I say that so confidently?
Because “doing” Never washed anyone! Because “sacrifice” is Not what God sought or seeks! Because All my punishment was beaten into the back of Jesus! Because He was and Is The Perfect Sacrifice! Because He Alone makes me wHOLeY as He does All who believe!
The law is seen here as the instrument which creates a person “humble and contrite in spirit!” For a christian to use the law for more than the instrument that gets you “TO” Christ is to Not follow Gods plan – this is why many are in pain and struggling and eventually give up on the christian life altogether!
The law gets you
“TO” Christ – it was
Never meant to do more!
