SEPARATING THE SPIRITUAL FROM THE PHYSICAL
THE HIDDEN MEANING
I were inspired by the recent loss of a loved one, in this next scripture, to acknowledge “that God took a real one.” But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. Galatians 4: 4-5 NKJV
REDEEMED – Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. Matthew 20: 28 NIV
1 Peter 1: 18-21 – For you know what was paid to set you free from the worthless manner of life handed down by your ancestors. It was not something that can be destroyed such as silver or gold; it was the costly sacrifice of Christ, who was like a lamb without defect or flaw. He had been chosen by God before the creation of the world and was revealed in these last days for your sake. Through him you believe in God, who raised him from death and gave him glory; and so your faith and hope are fixed on God. GNT
Absolved – Being the first to say that I am definitely not perfect, and truly believe I am living what others may consider “My Best Life.” Allows me the perfect opportunity acknowledge God’s presence in my life, and the answering of my prayers in bringing my Uncle home “Absolved.” The law was introduced in order to increase wrongdoing; but where sin increased, God’s grace increased much more.
