“CHRISTIANITY is not a code of rules and regulations or a set of DOs and DON’TS but simply an OUTWARD expression of the GOODNEWS of GOD’s GRACE that is in your spirit”
“Christianity is not a code of rules and regulations or a set of dos and don’ts…“
Religion is, and that is bondage. We, Christians, are not in bondage. The religious are. We’re in a relationship with God.
“…but simply an OUTWARD expression of the GOODNEWS of GOD’s GRACE that is in your spirit.”
Matthew 4:34 says: “for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.” That is a spiritual principle. And Jesus, in John 7:38 said, “He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.”
You received Jesus by confessing He’s Lord when you believed in Him (Romans 10:9). And the result was this spiritual principle working for you: you’re whatever you’re on the inside.
The Holy Spirit is inside you. He’s the very nature and presence of the Father. And you carry Him around every day. The euaggélion (The original word for euaggélion is εὐαγγέλιον, ου, τό. It’s phonetic spelling is (yoo-ang-ghel’-ee-on) – the Gospel – literally, “God’s good news” is what you have inside. It’s like pregnancy. You can’t hide it. What’s inside you will manifest. Hallelujah.
