Continuing…summary thoughts from our study in The Search For Significance…by R. McGee
Friends… McGee’s work has been very helpful for me to come to a deeper ‘experiential’ level of what Christ provided for us in His sacrificial death and His resurrection. The reality of what we have in our position ‘in Christ’…the understanding of what we have through the work of ‘justification’…’reconciliation’ ….’propitiation’….’regeneration’…. is truly soooo wonderful and if we can come to see and comprehend the depth of it…it provides for us a higher position of strength…where our faith grows in knowledge and strength..and we can grab hold of eternal and powerful truth ‘so that’ we will be able to use such ‘truth’ to work against and overcome the schemes of the dark side that seek to hold us back from being all we can be in our daily life. 😊
When you choose to believe God’s Word, your emotions may not follow immediately. Does that mean you aren’t trusting God? No. Faith is often exercised in the context of a struggle, in the midst of conflicting thoughts and emotions. A look at the people of God in the Scriptures shows that their faith was not in the absence of doubts and struggles but in the face of doubts and struggles. The idea that faith is only found apart from conflicting thoughts and emotions is one of Satan’s schemes to confuse and discourage us. When we trust in God, we will experience many obstacles to faith, but placing our trust in His Word – not feelings – will see us through. Guaranteed!!
