Your Father in heaven loves you and he wants you to enjoy each and every day of your life. He does not want you to be miserable in any kind of way. That is why He sent His one and only Son down to do what he did just for you. Jesus shed his blood for you He is allowing you to use his name, and he wants you to see that you are not just winning but you have already, in him, won. The gig is over, everybody knows that except for the devil. Just let him be him and you be you. He is not going to change and he still doesn’t understand the fact that you have in Christ Jesus. Just keep doing you.
Open up your spiritual eyes and your spiritual heart and ears and see and hear all that is available for you coming straight from God’s throne in the third heaven. Don’t be a Martha who is busy about doing things and missed all of Jesus’s sermon. Be a Mary who sat at his feet and soaked in everything that he had to say, everything that He did and his every move. Be on it. Be alert. Be knowledgeable of him. Let him fix the banquet! You just sit and listen. Be blessed!
Fulfilling the Law Through Love
Rom 13:8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
Rom 13:9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Rom 13:10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
Rom 13:11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
Rom 13:12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
Rom 13:13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
Rom 13:14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
LOVE FULFILLS THE LAW
The one debt which can never be discharged is love. Because we can never be out of debt to God, we are called upon to show unending love to man. So long as we love we cannot injure; and therefore the man who is always caring for others as much as, or more than, he does for himself (and this latter is the Christian ideal) is fulfilling that ancient law.
We resemble soldiers slumbering in their tents while dawn is flushing the sky. Presently the bugle rings out its awakening note. The long night of the world is ending, the dawn is on the sky, and all the malignity of men and demons cannot postpone it by a single hour. Let us put off the garments which only befit the darkness, and array ourselves in the armor of the day! What is that armor? In a word, it is JESUS CHRIST-His character and method, His unselfishness and purity-so that when men see us, they may involuntarily turn to Him.
