Rhapsody of Realities TeeVo Devotional 14th July – From Legality To Reality

(Live In God’s Reality For You)

TO THE BIBLE: 1 Peter 1:10-11
“Of this salvation the prophets have inquired and searched carefully, who prophesied of the grace that would come to you, searching what, or what manner of time, the Spirit of Christ who was in them was indicating when He testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow.”

“Dad, did Jesus really suffer and die for everyone?” Olga asked her dad.
“Yes, honey, He did,” he replied.
“Then why do so many people still suffer so much today?” she pressed.
“My dear, people suffer because of their ignorance of God’s Word,” he answered.

1 Peter 1:11 talks about the sufferings of Christ and the glory that should follow. Christ already suffered, and His vicarious death and triumphant resurrection paved the way for a life of glory for all of God’s children. There’s absolutely no reason for any Christian to suffer in life except by choice or ignorance of God’s Word.

You must get to know the Word of God in truth and live by the vital realities of His Word. Part of the ministry of the Holy Spirit to you is to make the Word of God tangible in your life. He makes all that Christ came to do in His substitutionary work authentic in your life; He brings you into the vital experience of it, not just the legality.

Let’s explain it this way: as far as God is concerned, everybody in the world has been saved… legally. However, until someone accepts that salvation, it’ll not be a vital truth or reality, and as a result, he’ll never experience the salvation that Christ brought to him. He may go to hell, not because of his sins, but because he didn’t know or accept the truth of salvation that was made available to him in Christ.

In the same way, when you’re in Christ, you must recognise, accept, and endorse the blessings of salvation that the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ has consummated for you in order for them to become vital realities in your life.
