Dear Brad: I teach a class each Sunday morning called "Doin Life With Jesus." This has forced me to stay in the red letter truths although I may expand to RT Kendall's work on the parables. I have found a call to purity, holiness and a new rest in Him. I have also found not everyone is interested in what I am sharing each Sunday. I guess it just seems impossible for us to live up to meaning doing life with Jesus as He would today.

I have been provoked this week by Heb. 5:8-9 "though He was Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered. And having been perfected (completed) He became author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him."

I beleive this relates to all that you are saying in that Jesus obeyed His Father, He was lead to live the laws given to Moses but with the heart of the Father. Obedience always comes with some sort of cost and most of us are not willing to pay this price. Perfection and or our completion in this race is through suffering then we can come to glory. Heb. 2:10b "to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings."

It is not easy to live the red letter truths but we MUST.

Thank you for probing the deep clear waters.
