Stephen Crosby writes, “The remedy for licentiousness is not preaching mixture and law. It is accurately understanding empowering grace and the indwelling Spirit in union with our own. Grace is not just a forensic acquittal of sin: being declared innocent through a judicial decree of God. Grace is what Christ was full of and He did not need a decree of innocence. Grace is the overflow of the interpenetrating life, love, and power that is shared in perfection between the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, into human vessels, permeating every molecule of their being. That kind of grace is not a cheap "get out of obedience" card to be played at the whim of our carnalities. New covenant grace is like the nuclear bond of an atom: it holds the universe together and it is by its very nature, energy and power.” (1)
Joy, energy, spirit and power.
The parable of the Sower is not about rooting out sin. It’s about rooting out the old covenant and being bedded down in the trinity. The effect of Christ our life – the incarnated trinity woven into our being is more than righteousness. It is infinite life in union with God. This union is the undoing of sin and death, the abolition of contractual righteousness and the reality of God the Father manifest as God’s sons.
