Dearest _____________,

Lordy, Lordy, I'm bolded over by what you've just written..............I live almost from a totally different vantage point regarding my soul and body..............

Years ago when I saw that Satan was out and Christ was in to stay for keeps; I had to accept that I had been made perfectly new; spirit, soul and body......... I was joined Spirit to spirit, and Christ now manifested HIS very life through my unique soul ( personality, the total me...........) and body.....my funny form.....

At that point I took into myself and accepted all of HIM and all of ME............. made one in unity! After that time my soul took on new meaning because it now had become the fertile garden/ ground for Christ to redeem others...............by way of me........my hopes, dreams, agonies, ecstasies, and everything that concerned me concerned Him and I moved into the adventure of watching how we worked as a team to bring life for others.........

Renewing my mind became the way I began to cooperate with Him in this new way of seeing and living............always knowing it was He by way of me..........bearing about in MY body HIS own dying and rising..........for my world.............

You see; we've been so much a part of the old thinking that we drag those grave cloths with us into our NEW life; and I might add; (although this is strong) we almost commit spiritual abortion because we won't accept that the LIFE now lives in our souls and bodies as well................ There was never anything wrong with us in the first place.............we simply took in the WRONG ONE............... Now that he's out; and new 'resident boss' (as Watchman Nee called HIM) is in; we are totally a new creation and rightly used by the perfect Christ living His life in a perfect vessel. That's why Jesus called us to perfection; and Paul told us how to get there.............It wasn't a problem that would have to wait till heaven for us to live the experience..........no, no, no, it was the PROBLEM SOLVED by ONE PERSON; and when He cried out "It is finished"...............he meant it!!!! He meant 'the old was over; and His precious creation was now cut OFF from the old............ I shiver to think of the total salvation He bought with His life.............and when I say 'total' I mean He bought back the earth; us; our clay temples; our body's

Everything; HAS BECOME NEW............There really never was anything wrong with us anyway; it was the ONE (SATAN) who indwelt us that was evil .........
We are already sanctified and set apart for His works to be manifested in this matter realm..............We don't finally get on with that business until we get over ourselves..........it isn't about us anymore..........as far as perfection goes........ We contain the PERFECT one.........and we've been (by faith) perfected in unity.. UNITY; that's a big word....and a big leap of faith to believe there's nothing wrong with us any more............. I think that's it for now..............

All my love and hope to hear from you again on this subject...
