Some Christians live lives of what I like to call “religious anxiety.” You say to yourself, “I know I am not living in the maximum manifestation of the application of God’s principles of grace.” So, how do you get plugged into this process and correct your attitude toward yourself?
As humans and sinners, experience has everything to do with how we hear. When I hear a message about the journey of grace, am I willing to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ? Growth speaks of a process. In 1 John 2:12-13, “little children,” “young men,” and “fathers” are references to positions in the process of grace living. Still, there are people who tend to condemn themselves when they hear a revelation like that because they are not living in grace.
Don’t fall into that trap. Grace depends upon the Giver, never the receiver. We have already received the fullness of His grace in positional truth. Now we just need to adjust to grace and be established in it through the experiential impartation of truth.
