Day 34 meditation focus is the three noble truths of Christianity that produces the good life.
The secret of the rich, full, and contented life is always in the simple living of life. Since there is mystery in the living of that life, man rarely, if ever, experiences the life he so desperately desires. A quick, honest look at one’s existence reveals a life that falls far short of the expectations of the continual good life. Regardless of his efforts, man always seems to fall short of perfection, the complete life.
Day 34 meditation reveals why most people fail to experience the life they desire.
Failing to grasp the truth of living in God’s grace, man spends his days in an abnormal existence. This abnormality (experiencing life less than God intended it to be) is so consistent that man has come to accept it as the norm. This false norm has become so entrenched in man’s mind that it prohibits him from rising above the all-too-frequent hells of his life. Having never experienced the rich, full, good life of God’s grace, man fails to perceive the hell he is experiencing until it is too late.
Unfortunately, most people, including most modern Christians, struggle in life because they never get past the simple, yet profound, challenge of grace and its revelation. Grace seems to be consistently bestowed in vain (2 Cor. 6:1) or is frustrated (Gal. 2:21). Most believers experience the frustration of grace by their own attempt to live for God (attempting to live in and through the deeds of their lives) rather than to live in God (living in harmony with the outworking of grace that produces the deeds of their lives). They are their own worst enemy.
Day 34 meditation proclaims the three noble truths of God’s grace, God’s love, and God’s power.
Three noble truths of Chrisitianity that produces the good life.
- The good life occurs only in, by, and through the grace of God.
- The good life occurs only in, by, and through relationships with others.
- The good life occurs only in, by, and through the innocence of mind.
