Salvation

Part of God’s plan was that

We would be included in the plan

Participants in his plan of salvation

In his glory

In the knowledge of Jesus Christ

And he who sent him

He uses us to carry out his plan

Only revealing the plan

As we carry it out through time

Not until the plan is complete

Not until

But finding at the end

After it has been completed

That we knew the plan all along 

 

He planned that we would carry it out

And entered that plan

Fulfilling his plan 

 

What we had in the beginning–salvation

We had all the time

We just had to see it to believe it

Salvation is the work of the Lord

Begun in him and fulfilled in him

Jesus Christ

No one is greater than Christ

Though Christ is greater than no one

He is not different than mankind

That who has taught me all I know

That which was here before me

 

There is no one greater than Christ

Likewise Christ is greater than no one

We are the same

There is no difference

 

I have followed one who is Christ

And he followed God

He became as God

And I have become as him

 

St. Matthew 10:24-25

“The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.  It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord…”

St. Luke 6:40

“The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.”

 

Christ

How do we see Christ?

 

Meaning do we see him:

As a father

As a brother

As a son

As God

As a teacher

As a spiritual leader

As a man

As the messiah

As the Creator

As one of the created

As the Word of God

As a master

As a servant

As truth

As love

As glory

 

Who is he to us?

 

He is all of these

 

But above all

He is my husband

My very soul

 

 

Genesis 2: 24

“Therefore shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”

And they twain shall be one flesh:  so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.  What therefore God hath joined together, let no man put asunder.”

 

Romans 8:35

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?…
