I love how Jesus never spoke like an old eight track tape player stuck on rewind … The Sermon on the Mount is completely opposite of anything and everything in the Old Testament. It’s Law verses Grace and Grace wins. Over and over again Grace Wins. It’s for this reason and this reason alone, we ought to look to the hills from which our help comes from. Thank You Lord for Jesus and his platform of Grace, It’s the only thing that really matters for one day we will all be dust … but while we walk around in this earthly body we should stand in and for hope. Lord, YOU inspired Paul to share with us the mystery of glory which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. The hope of glory is Christ in you. Not later hope but right now hope. Because later we got some washing yet to do. And later we got a crown of life to receive. And later we got some white robes to wear. But for right now, the mystery is no more. Christ in you is the hope of glory.
May God be the glory in your everyday story of this little thing we call life.
To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:27 (ESV)
