I woke this morning with this sacrifice on my lips: the righteous have a choice.
We have a choice between reflecting on the record of Christ in truth and building accordingly with His tokens of mercy or returning to destructive patterns which corrode and corrupt.
Those who battle or struggle to choose faith are resisting grace. Sinners see the yoke of Christ as something to strain under as they see in presentations of Jesus carrying the cross but this is not the yoke of His covenant.
The yoke of His covenant is easy and light for our every choice to reflect is met by power to express Him perfectly.
Psalms 85:10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
