If we have captured ourselves in a lesser identity that Jesus, we will tend naturally and routinely to spend a lot of time circling the mulberry bush rather than growing from glory to glory. Other effects are dullness of discernment and lack of spirit and life. All this despite much activity.
A malnourished body is the effect of either a disease or absence of food. So it is with our spiritual being if we have settled for a lesser Jesus and another gospel. This can be rectified by having One Husband. A passion for Jesus will unleash in us a passion to know God and ourselves as we are. Joe McIntyre writes,
‘As the Spirit of the Father unveils to us our high calling, it creates within us a cry for a greater participation in these Realities. A divinely imparted longing arises in us and we hunger to walk and live in all that Father has provided in Christ. As we taste the Realities of Christ’s Finished Work, we cease our striving and begin to rest in Him. Our hearts are satisfied with His perfect Righteousness which we have embraced. We believe that our sins and lawless deeds are no longer remembered in the presence of God. (Hebrews10:17) . But this makes us more than a moral paragon. We are liberated from the dichotomies of good and evil to live as sons of God – to live as who we are being who sons and doing what sons do. This is the state of being called, ‘Now we are the sons of God.’
