Triumphal Procession

The book of Galatians tells us that the person who lives in right relationship with God does it by embracing what God arranges for him.  Solely, rule keeping for rule keeping sake does not naturally evoke living by faith.  If living by faith is our goal, the book of James tells us there will be deeds, but if we marry these two books into one thought~ those deeds will be the ones the Lord has predestined for us, according to the needs of the moment. Those deeds WILL usher His grace to those in our midst in its various forms. 

Jesus tells us that His yoke is easy and His burden is light. Although our engagement with God in meeting present needs might be a sacrifice, we can trust that the fire of God will ignite that sacrifice in such a way that life and life abundantly will result.  Righteousness, peace and joy will be the by~product of heavenly activity and will become our portion. The joy of the Lord will become our strength, even if elbow grease and endurance are required.

Having a heart for Him creates a heart like His in us. As we choose to co-partner with Him, His Presence in us is enlarged both for the task at hand and for our benefit.  Thus, walking in the Spirit~step by step, task by task, heart by heart in triumphal procession (as He leads) in Christ, spreads everywhere the knowledge and fragrance of Him, filling the earth with His glory.

Glory!
