“NEXT” January 12
Day 6 “Reset”
Romans 8:1-2; James 2:12-13
This reformation of thinking that we need to see “Next” is the language of heaven and it is different. Romans 8:2 says we are now under the law of the Spirit of life, and James says we should live under the law that brings freedom. These are different than the things we have learned as humans. We need a reset.
But who wants to go through years of learning again? That seems hard and time consuming. It’s probably the reason why most people say the old is good when offered new.
Here is great news! This reforming and new learning is different from what we know learning to be. Our learning has been world-based and is logical, analytical, academic, with a systematic way of study.
2nd life learning, learning our salvation and new life is polar opposite and is sooo good and sooo easy! Let me interject that God made it easy for people like me. Ahahaha.
Spiritual learning is taught by the Triune God: Father, Son (Jesus), Holy Spirit, through relational learning, interacting daily, trusting, growing in faith and knowledge of God and spiritual things, receiving vision, constantly getting credited with rewards and encouragement. It is learning resurrection, spiritual life in an ongoing family relationship with heaven, in a safe and non-condemning relationship, being loved by the Father, our older brother Jesus, and the Teacher throughout the process.
Can I get an Amen! It is like a hard reset on a mobile device that starts new and in this case forever changes your life.
Thought: When we commit to being transformed into the image of God we see the miraculous. When we try to make God into our image we make ourselves myopic (lacking in sight) seeing little of God.
