An old covenant mind-set is not assuaged by a more liberal version of Christianity. While we may appear more laid-back, our discernment will be poor and our spiritual authority meager. We will incline to a more sophisticated religion yet remain outside the fullness of Christ and the unfettered revelation of Christ. Here we may excel in liberal theology but have limited experience of the wisdom and revelation of Jesus. Among the better educated, law ties us to the letter, to 'sanctified' structures and the sacralising or our religion causing us to find our security in externals that comfort our flesh rather than exposing ourselves to the adventure of the fullness of Christ. Resistance to the fullness of Jesus among such people is subtle but consistent. Only in Jesus is the veil removed.
Always Ok because in Christ always free to be the Real You
You are always loved, always at home when in the arms of Our Father. In law you are on your own. Grace is not for the purpose of bringing us to terms with the law. Grace enables Jesus to be our life. Grace is His life as you!
The truth of your life is that because of Jesus, you and our Father are one.
The issue of the ages is not about law. It's about being sons of the Father. Sons who live in Jesus worship God in spirit and in truth. The law of the spirit of life (Jesus) is the spirit of sonship - His life as ours.
It has been said that the Ten Commandments are the transcript of God's character. Not so. Jesus is the transcript of God's character. He is God's son and the express image of His being. You express God's character when Jesus is your life. Inconsistencies and shortcomings are covered by His blood. His glory as son of man flows into you by the Holy Spirit. You are the expression of Jesus’ character. If you have seen Jesus, you have seen God. If you don't know Jesus you don't know God. Jesus was never a toady of the law. He was the Son of His Father and He lived from Him. Jesus is the human face of God. When Jesus lives in you, love lives in you and over time you become love. God is love and so are His daughters and sons. This what it means to advance from glory to glory.
