Life, Liberty and Pursuing Him

2Cor3_17

My dear child,

 

“Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty” (2 Corinthians 3:17). 

 

Freedom is not chiseled in stone, but found by looking for Me. Liberty is not dependent upon your feelings or even your actions. Yet, it is quite easy to find. Find Me and you will find freedom. 

 

I explained this in My sermon on the mount. “You have heard that the ancients were told….but I say to you” (Matthew 5:21-22; 27-28; 31-32; 33-34; 38-39; 43-44). Those old “ought-to” laws were things of the past. Dead words written on a parchment page. The ancients were “told” and expected to live up to a firm guideline. 

 

The Law is what was said in the past. The Life is what I am saying to you today. Not just 2000 years ago when I said it the first time, but new daily, right now (Hebrews 4:7; 8:13). I am all about Life (John 14:6), not the Law. Those fixed rules and regulations have already been fulfilled; checked off the list; completed (Romans 8:3-4). They were all fulfilled in Me (Matthew 5:17; Romans 13:10 with 1 John 4:16). You don’t need to attempt them anymore. 

 

You are freed from the Law spoken in the past (Romans 10:4). You are freed to follow My voice today. 

 

You are of Me, My precious child. Therefore, you have the right to hear My Words daily (John 8:47). My Life speaks and reveals. It’s the Nature of all I am. Your life obeys as it hears through daily communication with Me. 

 

Think of a bud on a vine. One day it shoots forth and surges life toward the sun. It doesn’t copy the pattern of the tendril next to it, for it grows unique as directed by the sap of the root (John 15:1-5). 

 

So is your life within Me. Not living according to yesterday’s command, but new, growing and responding to My ever-present Voice. 

 

Life in Me is an eternal movement, always tendriling toward My Living Word. You stunt growth when you try to use last month’s Word to meet this day’s challenge. I’m speaking today. Use today’s word for today’s problem.

 

Why are you obsessed with making the little rules? Why must you always resort to doing life today by the standards of yesterday? I speak and you want to set up a tabernacle and never move (Matthew 17:4). I am alive. I am on the move. I am like the wind (John 3:8). Follow Me and allow the dead to bury their own dead (Matthew 8:22). I’m not the God of the dead, but of the living (Luke 20:38). 

 

Leave the Law in the past. You are righteous now (2 Corinthians 5:21). The Law’s not made for you (1 Timothy 1:9). Walk, instead, by following My Spirit (Galatians 5:18; Romans 8:14). 

 

We’ve got a big, wide spiritual cosmos in which to travel. Live Life today. Come. Experience.
