Psalm 119.31-32 [AMP] I cleave to your testimonies; O Lord, put me not to shame! I will [not MERELY walk, but] run the way of Your commandments, when You give
me a heart that is willing (free/ when You enlarge my heart! {ESV}).
True freedom begins with a surrendered and reconciling heart. Through the blood of Jesus we can enter Abba- Daddy's office (throne room). His ministry becomes our reconciling ministry. Our faith works by this love for our people who need Him, our faith is cleaving to Jesus to love everyone.
C. S, Lewis, in The Problem of Pain, wrote:
"The characteristic of lost souls is their rejection of everything that is not simply themselves" (Von Hügel Essays
and Addresses 1st series, What Do We Mean By Heaven and Hell? Lewis 623).
"[The lost selfish soul] has his wish--to be wholly in the self and to make best of what he finds there. And what he
finds there is Hell. ... to enter hell, is to be banished from [full/ whole] humanity. ...What casts himself into hell is
not a man: it is remains..." (Lewis 623, 625).
The selfish man who sees the error of his ways, and comes to God will find a gracious, loving, embracing Heavenly Father Who will take the formerly selfish man (who had once sold himself into slavery to the world's way of life) and bring him back into relationship again as a son of God. The one who has wasted all that God had given him in a wasteful lifestyle can return to our Heavenly Father and begin a new life with Him.
If one abides/ remains in Christ Jesus, there is fruitfulness, His favor, His blessings, Peace, and His anointing upon his life. Because you set out to know Him, the knowing of Him intimately, Jesus tells us, brings the Holy Spirit to remain and abide with/ in you [See John 14.17b (HCSB).]. Because you set your love on Him, He will protect and bring you satisfaction that far surpasses any earthly security or gratification.
