It's a book about the greatest battle on earth, affecting every living being for eternity. A battle so intense if we could see it, we would stand frozen in awe and wonder
Yet we remain oblivious to the forces. We float comfortably in our own definition of life, what's good and what's bad. Things happen to us, and our hope rises and falls based on our daily circumstances. For some, all hope is gone, and life is marginalized to despair and total depression and sadness.
For others, life seems to be ok, while I remain nervous about the potential bad "stuff." I've adjusted my expectations and things are fine. I really don't have any religious interests; I'm making it work. The enemy is leaving me alone, because I'm not part of the fighting force, I'm on the sidelines.
For others, my childhood had a religious upbringing, and I value the principles, or I gained an appreciation of them along my life's path. I believe I have faith in God, and my salvation is assured, yet I continue to live my life for the most part how I want. God may not know this person, and he/she could be lost, an eternal fate terrorizing beyond imagination at the end of this life.
For others, life has dealt blows, and through it, an understanding of a "higher power" and the living incarnation of Jesus Christ's redemption has invaded the "soul" and imparted power to overcome and be at peace with everything, because God is God. He is good, and he knows me, loves me, and is taking care of me and leading me to a good place - regardless of what happens this side of eternity.
My choices have changed, I want to be holy. It is called Daily Redemption, a peace that passes all understanding. As atonement leads me to be one with the Lord Jesus Christ forever - His life living in me - perfect Amen
