In the same way, my brothers and sisters, your old selves died and you became free from the law through the body of Christ. Now you belong to someone else. You belong to the one who was raised from death. We belong to Christ so that we can be used in service to God.
Romans 7:4 ERV
Here is Your truth! It is not open to debate, amendments or challenge!
Remember Luke 20:18, “Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken. If that stone falls on you, it will crush you!”
U are that stone! I must be broken; fighting being broken will eventually crush me! Either way, Your will is, . . . I will be broken!
Like the chick in the egg - my choices have encased me & the case has been strengthened by my repeated willfulness in sin!
BUT when I become willing to die to all that is not - U, . . . I can break out of all that has “encased” me!
U break me out & adopt me & I belong to U!
I have been raised from the dead by U & stepped into the liveliness of life in Christ - in U! U are my life & are life-giving to me, continuously! And the Spirit lives in me providing all that is needed to make this all happen!
This is Your design . . . how U set things up - to be! I accept! I've joined up! I love it!
