What is God up to in you?

.. The work of Jesus in the world is two-fold.

It is a work accomplished for us, destined to effect reconciliation: between God and man; it is a work accomplished in us, with the object of effecting our sanctification.

By the one, a right relation is established between God and us; by the other is the fruit of the re-established order. By the former the condemned sinner is received into the state of grace; by the latter the pardoned sinner is associated with the life of God....

How many express themselves as if when forgiveness, with the peace which it procures, has been once obtained, all is finished, and the work of salvation complete.

They seem to have no suspicion that salvation consists in the health of the soul, and that the health of the soul consists in holiness.

Forgiveness is not the re-establishment of health, it is but the crisis of convalescence. If God thinks fit to declare the sinner righteous, it is in order that He may by that means restore him to holiness."-Godet.

What is God up to, IN you?

You believe What?!!!

What fool believes that a baby came from a virgin and a dead man came back to life?

God shows that He is in charge of this life and is willing and able to violate concrete principles to show His love for us; even though we lived as enemies of God.

Don't be a fool!

Make peace with the God who made you and holds it all together.

Jesus lived and died and lives again to show the love of God;
and to BE the way, the truth and the Life.
"no one comes to the Father except through me"
~Jesus of Nazareth, The Christ of God

"Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28

Only a fool would pass on that offer.
