Deliverance Follows Obedience

Deliverance Follows Obedience
Prepare your heart to seek God for obedience that you may observe and do all that Christ has commanded through His holy apostles.
"For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve Him with one consent." (Zephaniah 3:9)

Lovers of self will despise Christ

I woke beholding an image of Christ in the pattern of promise set within boundaries and hope joined to conforming to those boundaries. Hard to explain how it was presented. Very edifying and impacting.

People say this sounds confusing when we share the simplicity of Christ with them but that's because they are trying to navigate around the responsibility presented by the order established by truth.

In fact, every day they have to identify and conform to boundaries and restrictions set by others to gain expected benefits. They just refuse to do so for Christ for they correctly see no avenue of expression for their aspirations through obedience to Him.

They won't refuse to take pills because they don't want to learn how to open the bottle. They don't refuse to buy cars and houses because they don't want to learn how to operate and maintain them... They are willing to learn to work within preset frameworks for everything except faith in Christ. Why? Because with all other things they have a boast in figuring those things out. Our obedience in Christ cannot be figured out. We have to be taught by the Spirit while remaining in fellowship with His selected stewards. Truth is received, not found. And there is no boast for the flesh in Christ. Lovers of self will always despise Christ and His dignities.
