If you can embrace the truth of your union with Christ, you will begin to see life from a completely new perspective. It is challenging, but the reward is a total liberation into the grace of God.
Try this. Assume that God has forgiven every one of their sins? Suddenly you will start to look at people, things, and events differently. If you assume a positive message of reconciliation between God and man life little by little starts to well up into a kaleidoscope of vibrant colours and the black and white world begins to look very old hat.
We all need to see colour, a beautiful prism of how we are wonderfully and beautifully created. Are original state back in the Garden of Pleasure was the mirror image of a vibrant, creative, wonderful, joyous, energetic, delightful, hopeful, excited God. Colour is just us going back to our original state.
We are easily tainted by the deceitfulness of the world, but our true nature is to live in the fullness of God. So that in all we do an in all we show we experience the glory of our new creation. In effect our view of God and life creates the way we view everyone around us.
Every interaction is an opportunity for you to see the life of creation in others. Every interaction is a chance for you to believe that God has forgiven everyone their sins. Knowing that God in Christ is not counting sins against us is the message of Gods favour that brings us into harmony with himself.
Look around are the people who you come in contact with, and see them as forgiven. When they do bad things, when they act badly towards you, remember they are forgiven. When you can’t understand why they are acting like they are towards you, just remember their sins are not being counted against them.
Assume the office of being a reconciler and begin to flourish in the freedom of forgiveness.
Everybody you come in touch with, those that cut you up on the motorway, those that push ahead of you in the queue, those that tell lies about you to make themselves popular, all have been forgiven at the cross, before they were born.
When we begin to view everyone as loved by God, forgiven by God, we start to see the awesome potential in each other’s lives and that potential begins inside us.
