One of if not the greatest joy of being in an underdeveloped 3rd world country is to see how the children make toys out of trash and beautiful moments out of misery. It always blesses and amazes me how little this precious children of God want or complain or demand.
“The LORD said to Moses, “I have heard the grumbling of the Israelites. Tell them, ‘At twilight you will eat meat, and in the morning you will be filled with bread. Then you will know that I am the LORD your God.’ ” – Exodus 16:11-12
Some people never forget where they came from in a good way – meaning they see the blessing despite the circumstance. On the other hand Exodus seems to be the history of the NJGA (National Jewish Grumblers Association).
Grace allows you to be able to constantly and consistently rest in the goodness and provisions of God by understanding that once you accept Christ, right Here and Now you are In Christ just as God wants you and nothing you could ever do could add to that or take away from that!
The sad reality is that most Christians never get to that point of understanding and growing in Grace! Most Christians have boxes that must be checked and rules that have to be followed as that is how They show the fruits of the Spirit! Most Christians are on the NJGA Or they listen to the justifications as to why this law and that law don’t really need to be followed any longer but these other ones do need to be followed!
The solution set for this problem is even more Amazing – when the Bible says, “Believe in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved” – it means just that!
This isn’t about doing more works – this is about Resting, Accepting and Having Faith in what has already been done and said – when you get this – your life will be Abundant – until you do get it you will be a NJGA team member or have the comfort laws which make you feel “ok” with God and make you think you have earned His Love!
