On Being Free Men And Women In Christ Jesus

I have in the past spoke of this and want to make it clear again as I know  just what that means and what it means to us. Unless we find our freedom totally in Him we are not really free and this is the only way Jesus would have it to be. It does take something on our part, something that so many don't want to give, total and full surreder of your will, love and all that we are and be His completly and in every way being this our hearts desire. If it isn't the full hearts desire you have failed to find it.

It actually amounts to this, we are free in Him when it don't interfere with our freedom in no way shape or form to do His entire will for us. We do it because it has become our will and our love also and His law of love is now our law of love, we are then free, totally free men and women in Him.

Here's a paragraph from an old periodical from a writer many years ago so this is not a new thing but has been the case since our Lord came and gave his all for us, and now we need only give our total will to Him.

"Christianity is simply living by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. We are to believe in, and live in, Christ, who is the way, the truth, and the life. We have faith in God when we believe His word; we trust and obey God when we keep His commandments; and we love God when we love His law. Believing a lie will not put any one of us in the way of being sanctified. Should all the ministers in the world tell us that we were safe in disobeying a single precept of the holy standard of righteousness, it would not lessen our obligations, nor make our guilt less, if we reject a plain "Thou shalt" or "Thou shalt not." We need not think that because our fathers did a certain way, and died happy, we may follow in their footsteps, and be accepted in rendering the same service, and doing the same works, that they did. We have had more light than they had in their day; and if we would be accepted of God, we must be as faithful in obeying the light and walking in it as they were in receiving and obeying the light that God sent to them. We must accept and improve the light that shines upon our pathway, as faithfully as they accepted and improved the light that fell upon their pathway in their generation. We shall be judged according to the light that shines into the soul-temple in our day; and if we follow the light, we shall be free men and women in Christ Jesus.

OK, now to finish my thoughts here, it is the law of love, and Jesus is love and it is His Law and if we say we Love Him and not do All His law we prove ourselves to be liars. It you truly Love Him, then you truly Love His Law of Love and then will your will to do His will He sets you free and you have a peace the world will never know unless they too fall upon that "Rock" Jesus and be broken, if not then the scripture says that Rock will grind to powder those who don't.

Lu 20:18 Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

1Jo 4:4 ¶ Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

My Love to All.

Bro. Gibs.
