It’s HIS LIFE IN US!!! We can choose to live by our life or surrender to HIS life in and through us! Abundance only comes through ONE of those. I’ll let you figure out which one.
All these years of trying to follow the right principles, trying to DO enough, trying to live “rightly”! How much time I have wasted!!! Somehow, we “got” the fact that only Jesus could save us, and NOT our works, BUT, we failed to understand that HIS same life that saved us, was also given to us TO LIVE BY! In the everyday mundane, in our issues, in our lack, in our health, and in our relationships! Like the Galatians, we seem to have started out right, but through the eons of time, we have gotten way off track! Religious systems of performance have replaced a relational connection with Jesus! “Substitutionary” leadership figures have taken the place of the Holy Spirit! Rules & regulations have replaced Love’s laws written on our hearts! No wonder, so many live an anemic, defeated, and frustrated life. You can’t live the abundant life vicariously by “rote”. You can’t live “your version” of His life! There is only ONE life…..HIS! The life HE came to give us!
I’m in my forties, and I feel like my journey is just now really starting! But it’s different now. I’m journeying by another’s life, and not a “sanitized” version of my own! The greatest LIFE is HIS! Journey on!
