John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Life Is In The Son

Recommended Posts

The believer will be hard pressed to find life in the scriptures outside of Christ. Nothing you can do or have ever done has brought you life. Spiritual life can only be found in the Son, 1 John 5:11-12,

11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

The scriptures declare your spiritual life is to be expressed in day to day living.

Your spiritual life effects every aspect of natural life, you cannot separate the two.

Example: you cannot separate Christ from anything do, and you cannot separate Christ from where you go. Inevitably when Christians hear the message of pure grace, their first thoughts are 'you mean I can go and do anything I please.

That is how misunderstood grace has become in law teaching today.

Most of my law friends ultimately confront me with the same question.

Pure grace will be the most difficult life you can live as well as the most rewarding. Think about it we are talking about the creator of all things as my life.

Point being when you now understand that it is Christ in every situation in life, and that life is expressed as the individuals creation, you watch what you say and what you do.

You are not free to express an old life, you were not saved to yield to the pulls of the flesh, your freedom only comes from Christ expression.

A Christian that lives a life apart from the Christ life is not free, ultimately they will be corrected.

The Christian life, is a life that is lived by and through the Christ in you.

To those that have been caught by religion need law preaching to feel like they are living the life.

Deceived into thinking that this life is their life and they must do something to make it work.

Jesus is an attachment to their life, not seeing Christ in the fullness of who He is, life. The seed of God in the human being, Gal. 3:16,

16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

 

You may be the only expression of Jesus in whatever situation, it is called spontaneous living.

A Christ person; someone that has knowledge of Christ being their only life, lives life understanding there is no other life.

A Christian with knowledge will allow Christ to swallow up their being, Acts 17:28,

28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

Condemnation still exists in believers at times.

The overcoming power of "no condemnation to them that are in Christ", is to be "in Christ" with knowledge.

You can quote scripture, stand on all the promises, and still have condemnation. How does this happen to a devoted God loving Christian. Their knowledge and understanding will be everything that makes their person, it is the hidden wisdom of God to understand their birthing, Eph. 1:17,

17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:

 

This is where you received life, the life of Christ comes from a birthing, born again, you get it no other way.

As a born again believer you have no other life but Christ. You cannot find life in anything you do.

The cross is God's place of bringing life to lifeless humanity.

There was a life but it was death, death-life is what Adam recieved in the garden at the fall.

With this in mind I must tell you there is no life in what Moses had to say, Abraham as well as the other Patriarchs or the Psalms.

Wonderful history and even the lineage the Savior of the world would come through.

All scripture is to be gleaned for edification and life application, but life is only in the Son.

In hard times I have been blessed by the sweet Psalmist of Israel (king David) and the Proverbs have helped me to understand the wisdom of God.

But you will not find life in them, the life we speak of only comes from the "Christ in you" nature.

I agree with you. Jesus said: "Let the died bury their died". I think he means that they are naturally alive, but their souls "died", their souls already were in the sins before God.

Living the life of Christ in me is very real, but it is not a burden to be feared ... it is a freedom to be desired.

 

Matthew 11:28-30 NASB “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
