Two People, One God.

There are two people.

One clings to a rope in fear, petrified of falling and dying. The other works constantly.

The working one lives in complete exhaustion all the time. Never taking a break, never stopping for a breath.

The one clinging to the rope is afraid of everything. Worry is a constant in his life. He won’t let go for fear of what may happen.

God speaks to both,
“I saved you.”

He then walks over to the one who works constantly and asks for the list of deeds that’s mentally been made over and over and over all her life.

Reluctantly, she hands it over.

Then He walks to the one living in fear and clinging to the rope and asks for him to let go. He too reluctantly clings to the rope, but finally lets go.

“I saved you. Love Me. Serve Me. Trust Me. Nothing is too hard for you, because I live in you. I will do things in your life and through your life that will scare you. Still cling to Me. Your good is in mind.”

Friend, God is asking you to let go of your imaginary rope of fear and fall into His plan for your life. Though it may be scary, it will be worth the risk. Big faith in God means big trust in His ways.

If you’re my friend who’s living it up in legalistic land I ask you to come find grace. Jesus’ blood covers ALL of you. He doesn’t save in part, but fully and completely.

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” - Hebrews 12:1-2
