Should a banana be blue or could I Rest in the idea that Perfect Love is different than I could imagine and in control of all things.
Our peace or lack there of is based on the “shoulds” that we allow to be our controlling forces.
How do these “forces” seek to destroy your peace?
“Since you died with Christ to the elemental spiritual forces of this world, why, as though you still belonged to the world, do you submit to its rules: “Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!”? These rules, which have to do with things that are all destined to perish with use, are based on merely human commands and teachings.” – Colossians 2:20-22
I was very blessed to grow up around some very well-meaning and moral people but I was cursed to be forced to accept much of what I was told as gospel when it was anything but!
The “Good News” of the gospel is this- You and I can finish elementary school and move on to LOVE!
The only thing that will not perish is Love- His Love through you and through me! Don’t believe me? Then why do we still know and follow a Jewish carpenter whose legacy could have and by all rights should have died a long time ago?
There have been many mini-jesus-es but only One Jesus that taught, lived, ate, slept and died because of Love!
By holding onto the “elemental spiritual forces of this world” you are denying the Supernatural Spiritual Power of His Love to reign supreme which is exactly what evil wants.
This path of “rule” based religious relationship will lead to misery and frustration in three ways:
1) You can’t keep the law! You never could and neither can I!
2) It sets you up to judge and to have a judgmental relationship with all those around that desperately need His Love, Peace and Forgiveness- which is the Light we need to shine!
3) It keeps you in elementary school when you could be getting a PhD in Love!
No church, no group and no individual was called to be the rule book and beat people over the head- we tried that period in history- it was called “The Dark Ages” for a very good reason!
Be the Light of His Love! Be the Light of His Mercy and Be the Light of His Grace and people will beat a path to your door to find out about the Peace that passes All understanding that walks you into the darkest night!
