John wrote, ‘In Him is life and that life is the light of men and women.’ Paul wrote, ‘Christ is all and in all.’ Jesus declared Himself the way, the truth and the life. You are complete in Him, the church is complete in Him and the Kingdom is real when He is our life.
The life of God comes out of a person. This life lives in you and the Spirit of Christ conforms you to Himself. In all of this you are graced with life as a thing in itself and the life of Father, Son and Holy Spirit in you.
Just as Jesus was the link between heaven and earth so are you. The church Jesus builds, the one that represents the fullness of His life is the community that lives in Him and is Him expressed as the community of the saints.
So what are you doing living from a system of ethics, a pattern of churched behaviours or the law? Why are you living from things that never could bring life when you can live from life Himself, be alive and be who you were designed to be as a son or a daughter of God?
Don’t live from the knowledge of good and evil with assistance from Jesus. That’s not His gospel. That’s a christianised version of the knowledge of good and evil that leaves us no further ahead than if Jesus had never been to the cross, been raised from the dead and descended in the Spirit to grace us with His life.
When the Son of God is our life we express the life of sons. When enfolded in our Father we received the love and the comfort that drives out all that is ungodly and everything that is contrary to the spirit of sonship. Placed in the fellowship of the trinity through no work of our own we become holy because God is holy. The name of your holiness is this: Now you are a son of God. Your life in Adam is dead and your life in Jesus is you!
