Over the years I’ve seen people fall into the trap of believing that God owes them something because they have lived a good life. In all honesty there was even a time I struggled with this myself.
This is important because it is our dependance on our own goodness that hinders most Christians from walking in the fulness of God’s plan for their lives. The root of this is our dependance on self. We pray for a move of God but will not see one until we first come to the end of ourselves.
For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight.
This passage contains a lot of truth we could a number of posts examining. Our core text, Psalms 85:10 has been referenced a lot in our discussions. It tells us that righteousness and peace have “kissed each other”. In context of our relationship with God this does not seem possible.
“having made peace through the blood of his cross …” (Colossians 1:20)
This is the answer to the paradox presented in Psalms 85:10! It is through the blood of Jesus that sinful man is able to find peace with a righteous God.
We must learn to honor Jesus at a much higher level. To do this will require a revelation of what He suffered on our behalf in His death, burial, and resurrection.
