God loves you with all His heart. God loves you with all His soul. God loves you with all His strength. God loves you with all His mind. Let that sink in.
Our Being is birthed from our Beliefs, and our Beliefs are built upon our Foundation, for and from it.
We gather and flourish only because of the Living Word who is Christ in us, our Savior, our Shepherd, our King - He is our Greatest Common Denominator.
By Christ's resurrection we know that God is alive, God is eternal, and God, therefore, is good. How pleasant, how this comes together. All good is life, and life is all good. You can operate from the cause of right or wrong, but your effects would still be dead. But Christ's finished work is both cause and effect, in that it is Life. Christ is Life, for Good, for Life, for Eternity.
"By Christ's life we truly understand that death has been defeated. We have been healed of sin and bitterness, and now we are righteous, and apparently, sweet."
Christ made it clear that any victory which was to be won for us would be complete, and it would be without contestation.
...the day we are called to stand and fight, we embrace the danger, not to escape fear, but because we ourselves have been engulfed by an overwhelming love. Plautus said it best: Conquered, we conquer.
"Christ is our Victor, and we join Him in His procession of victory as those He has saved, new creations, made alive as He is alive."
