The mirror of the soul is forever cleaned by The Gift Beyond Compare but most never bother to really look into it and meditate on what they see. This is the reason why I write, I never saw the mirror until I was broken beyond what anyone thought could be put back together.
In this new series “Who are you?” We will endeavor to dig into the “who” that He made you into and the “how” that creates the Amazingly GraceFull you! So let’s start:
“All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.” – 2 Corinthians 5:18-19
RECONCILED – what a Beautiful word! What an Amazing concept!
Notice its Past Tense for believers – why is that? “Believe in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved” “You are a new creation” “Peace I leave you, not peace as the world gives but peace that passes all understanding!”
At the very second that you believe, you are reconnected, made part of God again. The battle is over, you are made Whole, Complete and can “never” be separated from His Love! The struggle for the GraceFull is in coming back to this point, in Resting in the understanding of this – Resting is simply having Faith.
The whole purpose of the law has been to get you to the point of seeing your need for this new mirror of your soul that is a Free gift. Once you accept the Free Gift the law is no longer needed because you have accepted that All righteousness is based on Faith in The Free Gift.
If we say this is not true then we are left with this challenge – Where is sin in God? If you have been “reconciled” with God as the passage above states which means to be put back together with Him again And if you are still under the law so that you can sin, then there must be sin somewhere in God, correct?

I hope you will continue on this journey through these simple devotionals in this series of “Who are you?”
