CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Last week, Wednesday 8/11 was 4 years since being diagnosed with Leukemia.
After my first round of Chemo in early September, we never saw another blast.
I believe I was healed, but I continue to long for God’s rescue. If we all think about it, aren’t we all hoping and seeking God’s rescue, to know that He is coming through for us. I assume you all pray on occasion when we think about it for Jesus to come again and rescue us. And on occasion I’m reminded of the deep and horrible tragedy of the Garden when the union with God was severed, sin nature inherited, and Earth’s authority transferred to the kingdom of darkness.
The Good News of the Bible says God has come through for us by the work of Christ. Doesn’t Jesus say that, “10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost.” Luke 19
So why is that not enough and that knowledge transforming us daily? Life is hard, and it is true that we must gird ourselves like men as God told Job. But what about my burden is light and yoke is easy and is freedom really available in this life? I’ve listened to so many sermons over the years about the cross. I heard one a couple years ago that was truly beautiful and exciting until the very end when the pastor said now all we can do is lather, rinse, repeat referring to sinning and returning to the cross for forgiveness over and over again.
Forgiveness is such a precious gift and is so widely touted as it should be; and now as true believers, we are dead to sin and alive in Christ. This life allows the union with God to be restored, our sin nature circumcised and the ability to bring the Kingdom of Heaven to earth in this life.
10 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.
17 For if, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.
I’ve heard the catchy Christian statement that, “it takes more faith to believe what the world believes, than to believe in what we believe.” I believe that is true only when we limit our focus to Jesus’s death on the cross, but let’s not forget to believe in Spirit with child-like faith in the first hand testimony of the disciples that it is the Resurrection power and Ascension of the one man Jesus that gives us life and the power over sin in this life. Remember your identity as a beloved son of the King today and every day, and put these sins we are struggling with in the past and in the grave!
There is an overlap the Bible describes concerning the work of Christ — the cross and death, the resurrection life and the ascension where all authority over heaven and earth was transferred to Jesus. We supported each other in an overlap today and we can support each other in the spiritual overlap as well.
Work Of Christ
Christianity is the power of God to restore His originally glorious creation to all it was meant to be.
You see–there’s far more to the Christian life than just forgiveness, and there’s far more to the work of Christ than the Cross. Yes, Jesus came to die for us. It is an act of love unparalleled in the history of the world. But Jesus, also, rose from the dead. And the power of His resurrection is what most people are missing in their lives–the power of real Life.
The power of restoration and healing, the power to live as we were meant to live.
And there is more…
Christ also ascended to the throne. All authority in heaven and earth is His, … and He has shared it with us. That’s how we triumph over the Enemy. That’s how we bring His kingdom … in His Name.
Come and discover the power of the full work of Christ. The power to restore you–as a woman or a man whose life is filled with the radiance of God.
