Orientation to Life

God will not measure us by anything but His own gift, His own mercy, and His own grace. He will not deal with anything according to moral light. We are measured only according to how we respond to His life and light.

When knowledge possesses us without God’s light, we end up living in the Christian paradise of salvation without the grace of God transforming our minds. When Jesus Christ possesses us and takes over our hearts, however, then we learn the proper orientation to life.

Jesus wants to teach each of us to orient ourselves to His life. God sees us in His Son, who is the Light of the world. God sends forth His light and His truth to lead us (Psalm 43:3). Ecclesiastes 11:7 says, “Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold.”
