We will remain restless beings as long as doubts linger about God accepting us into His Presence in the way that can fill our souls and make us complete.
SO – –
DO we truly believe that God loved the world so much that He gave His only Son so that whoever believes in Him would not perish but would have Zoe-Life forever including now?
And DO we believe that Jesus literally carried our sins in His body on the cross and paid the full penalty that we deserved so that we wouldn’t have to? (From I Peter 2:24, see Isaiah 53:4-5)
And DO we believe that if we confess our sins, He will not only forgive them but will cleanse us from all unrighteousness? (From I John 1:9)
And DO we believe that he has removed our sins from us “as far as the east is from the west?” (From Psa. 103:12) and that there is no condemnation for us because we are in Christ Jesus? (From Rom. 8:1)
IF WE DO, THEN. . .?
If we do believe all that, and we say we do, then why do we continue to allow Satan to condemn us by throwing our human failures (past and present) in our faces? Why do we carry the shame of memories of sins that we’ve grieved over and confessed “a million times?” Isn’t it because of unbelief?
What if we truly believed?
HAVING BELIEVED THEN – -_
Having believed then, we will “have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus” and will receive His rest. When we do, we will be amazed by how the things of earth grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.
