December 30, 2020 - Perichoresis: We are all ONE
Genuine acceptance removes fear and hiding, creating the freedom to know and be known. In this freedom arises a fellowship and sharing so honest, open, and real that persons involved dwell in one another. There is union without the loss of individual identity. When one weeps, the other tastes salt. It is only in the Triune relationship of Father, Son, and Spirit that a personal relationship of this order exists. And the early church used the word perichoresis to describe it. The good news is that we have been included in this relationship. And it is to be played out fully in each of us and in all creation.
LMA promotes the TRUTH of perichoresis. The idea that we are all ONE. That we are ALL connected by and through God's Spirit. As you continue in your recovery/spiritual journey, rest assured of the outcome…..you will achieve victory. You are unique, yet, you are included in God and in one another. You are unique.
Ephesians 4:32 (TPT): But instead, be kind and affectionate toward one another. Has God graciously forgiven you? Then graciously forgive one another in the depths of Christ's love.
Ephesians 4:32 (Mirror Bible): Be inspired by kindness and compassion; your forgiving one another when you might feel irritated and frustrated demonstrates the way God graciously treated us in Christ.
You are forgiven…..forgive others…..you are forgiven….forgive yourself…..you are forgiven!
