Genuine Freedom

glorious freedom

What a great deliverance we have:
out of the authority of darkness.
What a marvelous transfer:
into the kingdom of the Son of God's love.

Today I found genuine freedom.
Freedom from flesh, freedom from self;
freedom from striving just to be good.

To live in God's kingdom
is not a matter of outward teaching & regulation.
In this realm we are ruled
in love, with life, and under light.

A realm that requires the divine life
with the innate ability of life.
The authority of the kingdom is
in the flowing of this life,
in the shining of Jesus,
and in the sense of life.

Here there is no fear.
No more struggle to please others,
'Tis freedom to live solely unto the King.

Personal notes from "The Ministry of the Word" Vol. 19, No.1 (Jan 2015)
