When Jesus is your life you multiply the Kingdom. When Christianity is your life you spread religion.
Serenely oblivious that they are substituting themselves for Jesus, the marketers of religion are convinced that their methods and ways are Jesus. But strategies, programs and ‘keys’ are no more Jesus than your tennis shoe is you.
Love is not lawlessness. Love draws us into Him. In Him we multiply His Order. Love is Jesus.
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord. liberates us from Adam and captures us in Christ. With Jesus as our life we become His Kingdom in the world.
The Kingdom of God grows from seeds. A seed in Kingdom terms is Jesus. The planting of seeds is the planting of Jesus in hearts, minds and lives. God’s priests and kings grow because Jesus is planted and nurtured in them.
In Jesus we are the church and are arranged as His Body to multiply life without measure.
Unless the world system falls into the ground and perishes there can be no life. It is by believing in Jesus that humans can live in God rather than in the knowledge of good and evil with its multiple injustices, self-righteousness and appalling chaos.
“I have so frequently and over so long a period noted a lack of freedom even in very serious Christians that I feel I must try to remind us of what we are.”
