    Sue that quote from Sparks says it all–It is NOT what we do for God but what God does for us–and I might add–through us–the grace is that we get to participate with Him in His doings.

    Thank you for the reminder that “Life in Christ…or the cost of discipleship” is available for us. Only God’s grace and our obedience can make it so. “Heavenly Father, we cry out to be in the Life in Christ.

    Paul told the Greeks on Mars Hill, “For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.” (Acts 17:28, KJ2000).

    I had a sort of a vision of myself and another person walking together hand in hand in a reddish sunset scene and I heard the Lord say, “This is the way it is when you are IN ME”… peace, harmony, love and total unity. We are IN Him and He is IN us at the same time just like Jesus prayed,

    “I in them, and you in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that you have sent me, and have loved them, as you have loved me. Father, I will that they also, whom you have given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which you have given me: for you loved me before the foundation of the world. O righteous Father, the world has not known you: but I have known you, and these have known that you have sent me. And I have declared unto them your name, and will declare it: that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.” (John 17:23-26, KJ2000)

    Thanks for sharing this, Susanne.

    • You are very welcome, my brother. Regarding satanic attacks against the kingdom of God and the unity He bestows on His children, I was just reminded of the following verses, Michael.

      “Whenever you enter a town and they receive you, eat what is set before you. Heal the sick in it and say to them,‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ But whenever you enter a town and they do not receive you, go into its streets and say, ‘Even the dust of your town that clings to our feet we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near.’ I tell you, it will be more bearable on that day for Sodom than for that town.” (Lk 10:8-12 ESV)

      We need to be very careful so that Satan cannot destroy this God-given unity. Shaking the dust off also means to delete some comments permanently and to separate ourselves from all ‘Christians’ who do not know His Spirit. (Rom 8:9) If they do not have Christ’s Spirit and speak up for Satan, let us shake them off.

        I agree, Susanne. What I really hate is when a person comes with accusations against another that are not substantiated with facts and they do not even reveal their OWN name. Darkness!

        “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone that does evil hates the light, neither comes to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he that does truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are worked in God.” (John 3:18-21, KJ2000)

      • Perfectly said. I have been saying that as of late. Shake off the dust. Praying for safety. I have had a couple of people very concerned about me without them knowing the details. The Lord nudged them to contact me. And very true indeed. God wants my safety. Amen. Though I walk through the valley of Shadow and Death. I feel like I am actually living the scriptures. I know I make hasty decisions but the Lord is always faithful to deliver me out of them. Amen. God bless you Susanne and Michael.

        Love in Christ always and more and more obeying God’s voice.

        Love, Stacey
