The Good News!

I am, that I am - everything is within HIM!

I recently had a wonderful conversation with my dad about Salvation. He and I spoke about sin. He shared with me that that first reference to it in the bible implied "being without". My own research further revealed that in the latin languages it refers to "something missing, being without".

What a mindshift this understanding had brought. 

In Sunday school class I was taught that -"Jesus died for your sins" - the focus is on the act of sin (missing the mark, breaking the law, etc) and the hopeless guilt and shame of it. This is certainly not condusive to a dymanic relationship with my Saviour as I the hopeless sinner will always sin.


Understanding that sin means I am without or missing something that can be found in Jesus my Saviour - I immediately have hope and the journey of restoration can begin bringing with it a completeness and because of that little to no chance of a repeat offence.

Lets apply this to some of the bible stories we know well:

Genesis 3 tell of the story of Adam and Eve - once they had eaten of the fruit they now had now determined  good and evil on their own - they were WITHOUT  the peace, wisdom and knowledge experienced in their relationship with the Father. they were WITHOUT a covering - they were MISSING the authority given to them.

Jesus has all authority, Jesus is our covering and because Jesus gave His life we can now enjoy a restored relationship with Father, Son & Holy Spirit and we can once more experience peace, wisdom and knowledge.

Jesus often spoke in parables to show us what the Kindgom of Heaven is like - we see through the stories of the Prodigal son, the lost sheep and the woman who lost her coin this truth demonstrated. With true repentance comes great joy as one discovers what has been missing and then find it in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.   

What wonderful, good news! This is "Shout it from the rooftops" revelation!  He is I am, that I am - everything is within HIM!
