Relax: How To Break Down and Talk To Yourself

We can’t make it happen. It has already happened. God has raised Jesus from the dead in a sovereign act of sheer, powerful grace. So what we have to do is live in the light of His resurrection. That means living out of gratitude rather than grasping.

N.T. Wright, Relevant Magazine

Gone are the days of living in a clawing and striving for salvation mindset. We live in the days of resting in His victory.

The gospel is not advice, recommendations, or suggestions. It’s a declaration! It’s Good News!

We live in His victory. We live in His grace. We live in His pleasure.

“God’s action in the world takes place entirely in plain old messed-up human nature. He does not kill off sinners; rather, he himself dies a totally human death in order that they may live new a fully human lives in the power of his resurrection.”

– Robert F. Capon , The Mystery of Christ… & Why We Don’t Get It

Human. Covered in skin. Originating from dirt.

It’s a big deal to understand that Jesus was human. He was just as much flesh and blood, sinew and bone, hair and toenails as any of us. But, at the same time He was divine; like Creator of all, Partner in the Divine Dance of Love, and Elder brother of all humanity.

The gospel of John tells us that Jesus became flesh.

The Word became flesh
and made his home among us.
We have seen his glory,
glory like that of a father’s only son,
full of grace and truth.

John 1:14 CEB

You need to pay attention to the word that John uses for flesh. He uses the word “sarx” which is the same word that Paul uses for describing the “sin nature”. If John would have said that Jesus became human it could be the same as saying the Jesus was the Goodyear Blimp, here but not on the ground with us. Jesus became “sarx” and got in the trashcan of sin with us.

Jesus got in our trashcan of sin with us and got out as all of us! Now, we can live in His resurrected life!

GOOD NEWS!!!
