You were created to live as yourself. As sons and daughters of I AM you were made to live in the uniqueness of your Sonship and in so doing bring glory to our Father. You will never find yourself or be yourself in the law and the knowledge of good and evil. Because you cannot be you in something less than yourself. You cannot be who you are, find your real identity and reach your potential as a person if you are living from a program of ‘this is what I as a Christian should be.’ Neither can we live in fullness as sons from a belief system.’ All of this is what Paul called out as the letter that kills. When we live in Jesus we live in spirit and life. He is the law of the Spirit of life in person.
‘For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death’ Rom 8.2 NASB.
Daughters and sons of God live from a person. They live from the person of God’s Son which means their being is rooted in God - in Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Here in Father, you live to your design. Joined to God in Christ you are indwelt by His spirit and life. So alive in your inmost being are you, that this life, this spirit and life flows out of you to ignite others with the joy of God.
Clearly spirit and life are the opposite of sin and death.
It’s either all Christ or all law. We can have but one master. To live by even one addition to Jesus is to encase ourselves in the coma of the law and become sleep-walkers rather than be fully human and fully alive. An attachment to the law will diminish Christ, smother the uniqueness of your identity, contract your mind and shrink your intelligence. Your discernment will draw down to a minus quantity and you will designate yourself as a worker rather than a prince. We cannot exhibit apostleship when attached to the law because we have denied ourselves the spirit of Sonship by choosing not to live as sons but as slaves.
‘But what does Scripture say? "Get rid of the slave woman and her son, for the slave woman's son will never share in the inheritance with the free woman's son’ Gal 4.30 NIV.
To see Jesus is to see yourself. Christ not only lives in us. He is not only our life. He is multiplied in all of us and thus we are His church. This is the church He builds without human hands because this church is the multitudinous expression of Himself. And so He fills the whole universe with Himself!
‘And the same one who descended is the one who ascended higher than all the heavens, so that he might fill the entire universe with himself’ Eph 4.10 NIV.
Infinity exists in the Son of God. Since Christ lives in you, you have now participate in His nature and infinity is part of you. Your development as a person is infinite in potential and your agency as an apostolic representative of our Father as sons is huge. You are stewards of the new creation and harbingers of the life of heaven among men. You are now a facet of His life, you are doing only what Father means you to be doing and you are an agent of His spirit and life. You are relevant not because you are trying hard or thinking a lot but because you are the expression of the One who fills all places with the presence of Himself!
