The STING of OBEDIENCE …

 

ot-scrolls

JESUS CHRIST

The LAW+ Incarnate

  … versus …

 [ “Now I’m saved; I can sin all I want to.” ]

 GOD FORBID!

+  +  +

 JESUS / Y’SHU+ saith unto him,

 I+ am

The WAY,

The TRUTH+,

and the LIFE:

 

no man

cometh unto The FATHER,

but by ME+.

The Words of Our LORD,

John 14:6.

 +  +  +

Mere outward appearance and outward observance of The Law WILL NOT MAKE a person Righteous.  No, rather, a person MUST BE IN AGREEMENT in his heart as well as in outward performance, with The TRUTH+.

 Our LORD JESUS / Y’SHU+

is

“The TRUTH+” .

 When we agree with The LORD in our heart, then something happens:  We change .  We change, replacing our wrong ways with The TRUTH+.

 This change usually comes about through repentance. Indeed, the Greek word for repentance, “metanoeW” means a “change of mind.” 

 Something ELSE happens when we agree with The LORD in our heart: the forgiveness of others HE+ is requiring of us metamorphoses  from a heavy-handed Law which we do not wish to perform … into a DELIGHT TO DO HIS+ WILL. From worm to butterfly, we change.

 How is that accomplished ?  

 His+ DELIGHT sits upon us when we agree in spirit and in TRUTH with HIM+. 

 That joy and delight is SO GREAT that we can obey what HE+ shows us is RIGHT to do , this time, out of LOVE for HIM+.

 We obey HIM+ … in response to His+ love for us !

 HE+ carries the STING of the Law of Obedience. His+ love over-whelms the Law of Obedience.

+  +  +

Let us pray:

 Dear Heavenly FATHER,

 Hallowed be Thy Name, O HOLY FATHER, and the Name of Thy HOLY SON+ , The LORD JESUS / Y’SHU+ the M’SHIKHA+. 

 I thank THEE+ for carrying the sting of obedience for me, O CHRIST / O M’SHIKHA+.  I delight to do Thy+ Will, especially in the DIVINE Law of forgiveness, for THOU hast forgiven me my many, many transgressions.

 O, Blessed be Your+ HOLY Name, LORD JESUS / Y’SHU+, for sending me joy when I obey YOU+ !

 Amen and amen.

+  +  +

 

In the Name of The FATHER,

Who created us;

And HIS HOLY SON+ JESUS / Y’SHU+ ,

Who+ saves us;

And The Blessed HOLY SPIRIT /

 RUACH ha KADOSH,

Who sanctifies us.

+  +  +
