We shall Find Rest if Like our Lord we are Willing to Accept all kinds of limitations without struggle.
But he said, “What is impossible with man is possible with God.”
So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.
Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions.
2 CORINTHIANS 10:3-5
For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ,
This makes Jesus the guarantor of a better covenant.
But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith— that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.
What is impossible with man is possible with God. Luke 18.27
God Desires not only a Change in the Mind of His Children at the time of Conversion; He Desires ALSO a mind that is Totally Renewed, which is Transparent as Crystal.
We find this Commanded in the Word of God.
The reason Satan can work is that the Christian has NOT been Liberated Entirely from a carnal mind.
The mind set on the flesh is hostile to God.
All the things in the world serve as enticements to men to sin.
The Second Coming of the Lord is to Change the World.
He will not only give us Enjoyment Within but also Allow us to Enjoy the Environment Without because He will Change the Environment on Earth.
God’s Faithfulness to His People!
And His People’s Faithfulness to God!
I will Put My Laws into their mind: thus God Secures their Unchanging Faithfulness to Him.
Their sins I will Remember no more: thus He Assures His Unchanging Faithfulness to us.
A Pardoning God and an Obedient People: there are the two parties who are to Meet and to be Eternally United in the New Covenant.
Faith in Christ as our Righteousness is to be Followed by Faith in Him as our Life from the dead.
We Died with Him.
Truly Dead to sin and able to Live for the Glory of God.
Actual Participation in and Experience of the Risen Life of Christ.
A Spiritual Reality!
Now Follow The Spirit!
Our scattered thoughts are like ungirded loins.
Yet God can gather up our scattered thoughts as a person girds up his loins.
How often our thoughts, though not unclean, are scattered and not focused.
In Prayer and in the Study of God’s Word, our mind will run wild.
Our thoughts may not be bad, but even good and tasteful thoughts are not conceived at the right time.
This is because the loins of our mind are too loose and not concentrated.
Yet God is Well Able to Restrain our minds and Bring our thoughts into Focus.
