I sense of the calm and peaceful joy in the Spirit of Christ. What a precious Saviour and dear friend. The perfect representation of the Father. His life is the full expression of our Father's character. If I want to know how our Father executes His Law, I see in Christ how He brings conviction of sin in order to give mercy. He brings condemnation through the law in order that mercy might be understood and accepted and joyfully received. Without condemnation there is no mercy.
Rom 5:20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
Oh how I love your law Father. It places a mirror to my soul and I feel poor in spirit and mourn but in that very place I turn to Christ and feel the freedom and joy of God's mercy in Christ.
Amazing Grace - how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me.
2 Cor 4:6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
At this time when the light first shines on the dark face of the moon, may I wish all my beloved friends in Christ the blessing of knowing you are child of God through Christ by faith. How blessed to have that assurance of sins forgiven and certainty of eternal life.
