It’s true, I have a deep sense of connection with Kim Walker-Smith because they were interviewed for the series of pre-married DVDs that my fiance and I went through in a class. Moreover, I’ve seen her at the grocery store. On top of all of that, she’s part of the house I call “home” : Bethel Church. That is the deepest resonance. Having said that, I am very very very happy for the upcoming release of their album! Check it out! Buy a copy for a friend needing encouragement!
Yes! Yes! Yes and YES!!!!!!! Live a life led by love and stop worrying about “the law.” Jesus PAID for our freedom from the law. We are free, free, free to live full lives easily being led by Christ alive inside us. Easy Jesus-y does it!
Tell your friends, tell your family, WE ARE NOT UNDER THE LAW.
“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.
Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”
“It may be that we have lost our ability to hold a blazing coal, to move unfettered through time, to walk on water, because we have been taught that such things have to be earned; we should deserve them; we must be qualified. We are suspicious of grace. We are afraid of the lavishness of the gift.
But a child rejoices in presents!”
“Am I suggesting that we really ought to be able to walk upon water? That there are (and not just in fantasies) easier and faster ways to travel than by jet or car? Yes, I am. There are too many stories of mystics being able to move hundreds of miles through the power of contemplation for us to be able to toss them aside. Over and over again throughout the centuries we have made choices which were meant to free us, but which ultimately have limited and restricted us. But the artist has retained some of the freedom we have lost in the industrial dailiness of our living.”
