A CONFLICT UNTIL…
BY: RAY PRINZING
“Follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called…keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ,”
The power of God resting upon a life always brings a conflict and a struggle, for the infusion of the power of the life of Christ is in contra-distinction to the self-will and ego of man.
Yet it is a paradox, that while we are in this continuous conflict, we are also in a continuous peace and rest in Christ. Furthermore, we are persuaded that these very pressures which are bringing such devastation to the world, are becoming the birth pangs for a new victory in our God. What has become the death-throes of the old order, becomes the birthing of the new.
Nor is our conflict limited to the conquering of our own self-life, and trying to get along with other men. There is a contest
When seems that all is brought to death, yet His life shall e’er abound, the conflict only lasts until your whole life in Him is found.
