Yesterday we explored how when we have experienced Christ’s love and forgiveness, we are changed, made whole, renewed and complete in Him.
Many of us struggle with that idea of change. We often ask question like ‘Can I really change?’ or ‘Am I really any different from before I started following Christ?’
Sometimes it is easy to answer those questions with shallow response, so I won’t patronize you here. However, if you do wrestle with questions like that, I have found a great resource that will help you process through who are in Christ.
A good friend and I have been reading the Robert McGee classic ‘The Search for Significance’ and processing similar questions. You can find the book on amazon here. The book does a great job exploring some of the more complex truths of our faith (like propitiation) and then identifies many of the enemy’s lies that can keep us from experiencing the freedom that I wrote about yesterday.
Next week we are going to dig into some of the more specific ways we get caught up in the enemy’s web of lies. Our view of how God loves us can get contaminated. and the virus of lies can really cause hurt and destruction. We will begin a series of post call ‘Filter: Finding Freedom from Contamination’ – so don’t miss it.
In the meantime be encouraged and live in the freedom of the 2nd Corinthians 5:17
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
