Who lives in you? Is it an idea? An ideal? A comfortable religious system?
The potency of the things Jesus did while he was here were born in deep intimacy and worship with the father. A lot of us fear it because we will have to take responsibility and authority over the things that (seem) to have a death grip in our lives, the lives of those we love and in our culture…. sickness, depression, fear, anxiety, division, anger, jealousy, lust, racism, slander, pride, selfish ambition, hate.
Just because we have been born into bondage don’t mean that we have to accept that our slavery is common and the norm, because of Jesus and our birthright through him we can have freedom.
We are at war with a BB gun against a formidable opponent because we haven’t been taught that we are the sons of God, that we carry the same power that Jesus carries, that Yahweh loves us as much as he loves his only son Jesus, and as we learn to rest in Him and what He has done for us (his finished work on the cross) we start to see that He is our champion, He is the one who fights for us and there is nothing anyone or anything can do to separate us from his love.
