The 100% concept in a relationship with Christ
Hundred percent is a mathematical expression of totality, which constitutes the whole of the subject. It is about the wholeness of a component without ex or inclusion.
Christ & totality.
The two aspects of totality in a human relationship with Christ.
1. Christ is 100% that we need.
Christ says, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”i Him being the way to the father concerns our identity; our source of origin so that we would adequately percieve ourselves. An object or a being is partly best understood in clarification of its origin. Christ calling himself the truth in this case He simply means he is the reality. According to the Blue Letter Bible the outline on the bible usage on this passage, a personal truth is that candour of mind which is free from affection, pretence, simulation, falsehood, deceitii. meaning He is our reflection in a mirror. Christ calling himself life, He becomes the 100% or all we need to indeed live and function to our capacity. Life outside Christ is incomplete just like unbelieveing Human spirit is not quickened back to life from the Human fall & lacks in fellowship with the God. Christ makes our lives complete and eternal.iii All that one needs of Humanity is simply Christ. He is the Hundred percent a man needs to function adequatly and understat himself philosophically.
2. The Godhead demands 100% from his adherents. Christ says, “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God”iv The ultimate point of a Christian journey of faith is to see God. Be it on earth today or in life to come. During the process to this goal we struggle to develop a pure heart for God; since we are not born believers. The Greek word translated for Pure is Katharos which means to being free from admixturev This is different from being clean. In a laboratory mixtures of chemicals can be kept clean from corruption of any kind but it is not pure any more for the substance is a compound or admixture. In reference to human heart to God, I call it the singleness of affection and attention to God. That is why God calls on us first of all to love Him our God with all our heart, and with all our soul, and with all our mindvi. This kind of affection and attention is 100% and second to none, be it family, national duty or a hobby in life.
he most important of all is to grasp the concept of 100%. Christ is all we need and he demands the first position in our live. Christ is the gateway to real life, true prosperity, and wisdom against all challenges.
If we give God full attention, He gives the same to us.vii So wonderful to get full attention from the father the universe! Lastly, it is all about love and affection and fellowship with God. He strengthens and sustains us as we express our love for and to Him. Love is something that grows. So let our love for Christ never stop growing. We can improve this by learning to discover Christ a new every day. Calling on his name in all situations and trusting to finally see God as the only provider for peace, grace and satisfaction in our lives. May God bless you as you seek the concept of 100% with him
