Live The Mystery!

It’s ALL about Jesus–start to finish.  I cannot say it any better than Oswald Chambers did today (this is just a sample, the whole thing was excellent).

The mystery of sanctification is that the perfect qualities of Jesus Christ are imparted as a gift to me, not gradually, but instantly once I enter by faith into the realization that He “became for [me] . . . sanctification . . .”  Sanctification means nothing less than the holiness of Jesus becoming mine and being exhibited in my life. . . Consequently, I slowly but surely begin to live a life of inexpressible order, soundness, and holiness–” . . . kept by the power of God . . .” (1 Peter 1:5).

7_23_15_Sanctification_#286We all want to be able to explain things–but with God, most things are a mystery–especially sanctification.  If we could explain it, we could imitate it and as stated above, it’s not about imitation, it’s about being the real thing–mysteriously kept.

Now that’s a mystery to live in.
