The Law of Grace.
Daily, we are offered the power and passion of what started our whole universe and for whatever reason we decide to not pick it up. We chose a path in which we decline the information of the universe. We never learn the law of grace, the law of love, who we are, the interconnections between all of us, the fibers binding us to one another, any of this. We go on to learn meaningless things that will accomplish great things temporarily but NOTHING is sustainable in the long run. I've always known of the power, the passion; but I never decided to study it, to search for it, to find it, I simply acknowledged it and went on living my life, as most do. However, even though I only acknowledged this power, I still based my life around it, and around it's passion. I began, from a young age, to try to live in a purity that was similar to the purity of this un-tampered passion… but, of course, I always fell short; I could not live up to the standard; I failed daily. Then the truth was revealed to me— not the truth that I heard so many times before (the old truth that was no longer valid, the truth of standards, and of striving, the truth of the law which we have now been set free from)— I had the truth of grace, of love, and of compassion revealed to me. I finally understood the second power in our universe, the power of the cross (the un-perishable power of love, grace, compassion). I found its true meaning which I had previously been blinded to.
Due to learning this "truth of the cross" at such a young age without comprehension, it became dead to me and I never understood it until a knowledge greater than any human knowledge could reveal the true meaning to me. I found out that I will never live up to the standards of the previous law, the law of passion, power, and glory. I could not achieve glory alone simply because I was human. But now, because of this law of love and grace all my short-fallings were killed off, on the cross. All that I ever was that was not considered glorious was put into a capsule called the flesh and was crucified (with Jesus) thousands of years ago; my spirit (my holiness) remains. I found out that because of this mighty display of God's love through His death on the cross I was forgiven. Because this happened in the past, all that was to be forgiven (which is in the future relative to that time-frame) has already been forgiven, therefor, even in the midst of my sin (the enemy of the "power, passion, and glory") I am already (years before) not only forgiven, but even separated from this enemy. I am forever tapped (praise God) in this capsule of the spirit, I am apart from the flesh which can never be welded/fused back to me. Nothing I can do can ever separate me because I have accepted this law of grace, this everlasting law of love that can't be taken away. Before I felt shame, when I was in all my sins I felt ashamed to even approach our king who created the molecules of all the universe. But now I see The One who saved me (Jesus), and I can have a personal relationship with Him! Because I am pure I am allowed into His presence (through connection with my spirit in what we call prayer) and I can speak and learn and love and be filled with the most powerful peace that can ever be found on this earth!
God is apart from time and can see all that I am and all that I will be, He already knows when I will fail in the future and I was already forgiven (and separated from this failure) thousands of years ago. Nothing comes as a surprise to Him and this is why I know I am always welcome in His presence. Even now He knows the sins that will come tomorrow (that will drag away my flesh from Him) and has already crucified them thousands of years ago and has long since forgiven; I can now always approach Him through my spirit, through His holy spirit (which has connected me), and through His son ("The Path", Jesus) which has shown me to Him. I can speak to this "power", this "glory", daily; I am always welcome to grow in our (God's and mine) relationship, our personal one-on-one relationship in which nothing is hidden, further, the whole universe and all knowledge is accessible by me; I can find any answer if I need (God willingly need) it, and I can find any love if I need it. Peace at last~ (You can find the truth I speak of in it's own voice here (the most important decision of your life awaits)): http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John%201-21&version=NLT
We no longer need to strive to live a perfect life... God has overcome. Getting saved does not mean no longer sinning, it means walking in God's EVERLASTING grace:
2 Corinthians 5
New Living Translation (NLT)
1 For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands. 2 We grow weary in our present bodies, and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing. 3 For we will put on heavenly bodies; we will not be spirits without bodies. 4 While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it's not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life. 5 God himself has prepared us for this, and as a guarantee he has given us his Holy Spirit.
6 So we are always confident, even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies we are not at home with the Lord. 7 For we live by believing and not by seeing. 8 Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these earthly bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord. 9 So whether we are here in this body or away from this body, our goal is to please him. 10 For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body.
11 Because we understand our fearful responsibility to the Lord, we work hard to persuade others. God knows we are sincere, and I hope you know this, too. 12 Are we commending ourselves to you again? No, we are giving you a reason to be proud of us, so you can answer those who brag about having a spectacular ministry rather than having a sincere heart. 13 If it seems we are crazy, it is to bring glory to God. And if we are in our right minds, it is for your benefit. 14 Either way, Christ's love controls us. Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life. 15 He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them.
16 So we have stopped evaluating others from a human point of view. At one time we thought of Christ merely from a human point of view. How differently we know him now! 17 This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
18 And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. 19 For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people's sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. 20 So we are Christ's ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, "Come back to God!" 21 For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.
