COMMENT Father God deployed a plan that He knew could not work. But nevertheless a plan that would lead us to His Son and more. It would result in Jesus living in us by the Spirit, becoming our life by the Spirit and being the new and living way to His Father heart.
In the old covenant religion directed us to life. In the new covenant life is Jesus Himself. He is the Way into the Father’s light. This is why remaining in the old covenant and flailing about in religious activity leaves us dim of perception and poor in discernment. By living in Jesus we come to the light.
