We all have the venom….
Scripture states that this age is under a foul and rebellious spiritual influence, and it only takes a causal observation to see the fruit of this deception.
Of this deception mans religious mindset is formed, this is displayed in various ways, all of which are devisive, religiosity is indeed devilish, we all are snake bitten and the venom of distortion and half truths can be found in us all…so what is our hope??
It’s exactly as our brother Paul stated…what a wretched man I am…and the remaining portion is our hope…
“Thanks be to God, through Jesus Christ our Lord!”
Yes it’s the workmanship of His hands that transitions us from death (our carnal snake bitten thinking) into His Life, Light and Love.
This is what Grace is, the workmanship of His hands inwardly, and His Mind becoming our thoughts.
It’s only as His mind becomes our plumb line, our nature that we begin the ascent out of the ‘snake pit’ of religiosity into the clear clean Living Water of the Spirit of Christ. As our brother Paul also stated…
“allow this Mind to be in you that was in Christ Jesus” this Mind is the Mind of our Father.
Blessings in Christ!
