Unleash Your Inner Warrior
My dear warrior,
Over the last year, my understanding about grace and the law have been intensely challenged. As the questions came flying, I found myself unable to answer and I realized that though I knew God’s heart for me, I did not understand His grace as fully or deeply as I ought. The challenge caused me to become hungry for answers, and I became all the more ravenous after God’s heart and mind. I wanted more than just to know His heart for me; I wanted to know His thoughts! Being challenged this way caused me to delve constantly deeper into His Word, and constantly ask for wisdom and spiritual understanding and seek to understand the reality of His Kingdom. Those questions lit a fire in my heart that launched me onto the greatest adventure of my life—and also inspired me to start this blog, because I cannot stand to keep what I have been learning to myself.
For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome. - 1 John 5:3
What if when God said, “be holy, even as I AM holy,” it wasn’t just a command. What if it was an invitation? What if God is inviting us to be like Him? When I read that verse and I hear His voice, I don’t hear an angry, wrathful taskmaster saying “Be holy, or else!” I hear a gentle, loving God whisper to me like He's sharing the greatest secret in the world with me. He nudges me in the ribs and says, “Hey, be holy. Even as I AM holy. Wouldn’t that be awesome?” What if when He said, “You shall be holy unto me, because I the Lord am holy and I have separated you from other people, that you should be mine,” it was a beautiful promise? A promise that says because He loved us so much that He sent His only Son to save us, that we are being transformed in His image. A promise that says He has purposefully set us apart to be made like Him. In those moments, I find my heart is absolutely exhilarated. My heart is set alight as I am filled with a desire to be more and more like my Creator. I want nothing less than to be like Him!
