I’ve Come From:

From Adam to Christ  

From death to life

From old to new

From darkness to light

From works to rest

From law to grace

From judgment to righteousness

From exhausted to seated

From me to Him

From busy to content

From do to done

From anxiety to peace

From religion to relationship

From “what’s next” to “what’s finished”

From “have to” to “want to”

From temporal to eternal 

From glory to glory to glory

Cross, Poetry

“It is Finished At The Cross”

I sigh from relief
Now my mind can rest
The work is complete
Give me a spiritual blood test.
Cause I’ve been re-gene-arated
That old man Is dead.
That old way of doing things
That depended on me
Was cut out, extracted, and hung on a tree.
And what came alive the day I believed
Was a life so perfect so connected with God
That people either applaud or call it a fraud.
But I know the truth, I’m confident and sure
That the life I’ve been given it’s like haute couture
It’s like a direct line from Heaven
Like peace undefined,
Like organic and holy like a branch and a vine.
So don’t worry, or doubt but rest in this fact
That the mysteries been solved,
the code has been cracked
Your not whack, So stand up put your shoulders back
You’re the righteousness of God, so walk like a boss
Cause it’s all about Jesus and what he finished at the cross!

It’s All Jesus

Exhaustion, busy work and emptiness, these are the feelings that I have had after years of being a christian;  until now.  I’ve been taught x number of ways to sanctification, x number of ways to get right with God, x number of things to do to earn God’s trust but no one ever told me, until now, that all of these are found in “Jesus”. Wait a minute, you mean that sanctification, righteousness and even perfection are all in Jesus, “yes”.  They aren’t achieved after Jesus, you aren’t empowered to receive them after Jesus, they are found only “in Jesus”.  Meaning, Jesus is our sanctification, redemption, salvation, perfection, righteousness…etc..etc..etc..  Meaning, when you got Jesus you got sanctified, redeemed, saved, perfected and made right!  You are a current possessor of all you have been working your butt off to achieve (I Corinthians 1:30). Rest, now just rest in Him (Rom. 4).  Sure we work out our salvation with reverence (Phil. 2:12).  But that is just to work out of what is already in you.  In the person of Jesus Christ we find all that we will ever need.  What is required of us is to say “Thank you” and “Amen”.  Now go live!
