So Are We

If we realize Christ's love in us, then we come to understand the amazing perfection of God in our experience as love flows through us. We can have boldness in the Day of Judgment because God dealt with the sin in us so that He could live inside of us, and then put us inside of Him. We have boldness to live in the victory of such truth as this because every issue of self has been dealt with by the Cross. We do not have to fight yesterday's battles, chase last year's effects, live in the environmental causes of evil, be confronted with superficial accusations, or fall into the demise of spiritual decline through Satan's program to educate our minds in the realization of the horizontal values of human exchange. We do not ever have to falter in human deterioration from the life of faith, but instead we enter into His victory and receive the gift of righteousness, which is Him alone.

Jesus did not have to die to be righteous, neither did He have to do anything to gain it, because Jesus is, was, and always will be righteous. Jesus Christ never had to prove His compassion in any way, because He is filled with it. He is filled with what He is- compassion-and, therefore, He simply rests in Who He is. He does not have to perform to be, but He is so He always performs. Jesus never has to wait to achieve, but He has achieved so we wait as that achievement is revealed. Jesus does what He does because He is never anyone else but Who He is.
