There is nothing I can do to make God the Father love me any more. There is nothing I can do to make God the Father love me any less. His love for me is not based on my performance. This is what grace is.

What Are You Occupied With?

(Have the Goodie read to you!)

How many Christians are taken up with something short of Christ! They are occupied with their holiness instead of with the Holy One; they are occupied with the promises instead of with the Promiser; they are occupied with the blessing instead of with the Blesser. And yet having Him we have everything.

The promises of God “in Him are yea, and in Him Amen.” His holiness is mine. His blessing is mine. The full occupation with a heavenly object will alone make us heavenly without an effort. We have not to try to be this or that: We “beholding … are changed” (II Corinthians 3:18).

Saint

Every believer is a saint. This word does not refer to any attainment whatsoever, but simply expresses that the believer is “holy,” “separated,” “set apart,” “sanctified” by the call of God (I Corinthians 1:2). Hence it is no assumption to take the name of “saint.”

Just Being

Even to “yield more” is still a form of passive legalism. The truth is just “being” – recognizing that He and we are a unity – now forget and BE!!

We love to cover our central vacuum by some form of self-effort, and folks love it too, to give them a feeling of doing something to get where we can never get except by being!
