Not ENOUGH STRENGTH CAPACITY
Mood:  lazy
Now Playing: Umma23
Topic: Galations 3:13

S.

Galations 3:13 (NKJ) Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us (for as it is written, 'Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree'.)

 "Hangs"=suspends, to keep from falling or sinking

"tree": from the Greek word, "scetarius"= A Roman ("strength") measure of capacity. 'STRENGTH'S CAPACITY'

O.

The 'curse' was having to work/sacrifice/do-it-yourself, in order to be right with God. A 'curse' is the calling down of evil onto someone. From the time of Adam and Eve's disobedience to God, humanity was cursed. Disobedience to God causes an open door to satan messing with us. But Jesus, the Chosen of God, traded His life for the 'curse/the evil' for us. Jesus took that 'evil/curse' suspended it on the cross with Him, and it died with Him. He arose but the curse stayed buried....IF we leave it there! Jesus did all is needed to be right with God again. Humanity can NOT do ANYTHING, physcially, to be right with God. But JESUS can...and DID! We rely on His works, not ours. We don't have enough capacity in our strength to work hard enough to be right with God. But Jesus, being God Himself, has more than enough strength. We rely on HIS strength and NOT our own.

A.

Jesus killed the need to 'work' to be right with God. Now I am to just rely on Him. I can see myself hanging in the air, kicking and wiggling, trying to get to God. But when I allow Jesus' Spirit to blow me, I easily get to where I need to go. Resting in the wind of the Spirit, He blows me where I need to go, what and who I need to touch.

P.

Jesus, Thank You! You made it so easy for me to rely on You. Show me how to lay aside all my human works and rest in what You have already done. Show me, Lord, how to always point to the Father, as You do!
