Jesus, The Ultimate Balance

Jesus is the ultimate balance for life. My identity comes from my life in Him. My identity doesn’t come from a label placed on me because of something I may or may not believe. Who cares if I believe in a rapture or not, or if I vote republican or democrat. Endless arguments, division and labels are placed when our personal opinions become our religion.
My theology is evolving, but it is evolving into something very streamlined. I may or may not be correct when it comes to my end time beliefs or politics but I am 100% sure of my relationship with Jesus and what He accomplished at the cross. I am absolutely confident that within Him is everything I will ever need. I say that my theology is streamlined because I want nothing more or less than what is Christ. If it’s found “in Him” I want to know what it is and if it isn’t found “in Him” I don’t.
I find balance in Christ because in knowing Him is found all the elements to Christian living. Things religion has worked centuries to develop come naturally. Try really knowing Him and not having faith…it’s impossible. But faith outside of him is exhausting, because it’s dependent on “me”. Once you know Him as the author and finisher of your faith there is rest. I just trust Him. I can “be” without it being all about me.
Rest and balance in Him doesn’t mean I have it all together. It means in the midst of my life on this earth, my life filled with drama and irritation, decision making both right and wrong, that it’s about His goodness, His bigness, His ability, His accomplishment, His plan, it’s about Him. So if life were a giant scale and on the one end is me and the other is my problems then I suppose the scale would be Christ because in Him I am always in balance.
