The Fruitful Bride – (final thoughts)

At present, we are working with the light of truth presented by Dr. Francis Schaeffer from his book True Spirituality where we are discussing the basic considerations of the Christian life, or true Christianity.

Additional thoughts to wrap-up the chapter… The Fruitful Bride 

It is as redeemed, justified, created creatures, men and women, that we now stand, moment by moment, before the personal God.  It is not just one part of us.  The will, the mind, the emotions—all are involved: the complete man, as a unit, involved in this moment by moment, one moment at a time, believing God’s promises and living moment by moment in total regard to the significance of the work of Christ in our present lives.  Eve doubted God; that was her sin.  She believed the ‘lie’.  Eve doubted God, and I as a child of God am now to do exactly the opposite:  I am to believe him in every choice I make in my moment by moment life.  The fundamental problem in the world is that people doubt the God who exists.  Doubting God is living in revolt to the God who is Creator. Doubting God is living in revolt to the truth of purpose and intention for life.  To believe him, not just when I accept Christ as Savior, but also at every moment, one moment at a time:  this is the Christian life, and this is true spirituality.  And ‘this’ is what the lost world seeks.  If we can learn to let Christ fully shine through us, we can be his light and love to the people who live in darkness in the world around us.
