"Follow Christ in the denial of all the wills of self, and then all is put away that separates you from God; the heaven born new creature will come to life in you, which alone knows and enjoys the things of God, and has his daily food of gladness in that manifold blessed, and blessed, which Christ preached on the mount."
Common sense flows - Who is Jesus? Can I know him? I know Jesus what does my life look like?
The joy of a Christian is recognized in the overt freedom one experiences living in obedience to God’s grace. When we realize the holistic truth that all we are and all we have are afforded by grace engaged with the all encompassing wonder living purposed lives in reflection of Christ’s glory there is true freedom from every imaginable anxiety.
The implication of committing our hands to Christ’s work is the frontier work of Christ’s mission opening up to us.
