On Transcendence

“Transcendence Trumps Personal Striving”

 Another Patton Associates S-M-A-R-TBriefing

Definition

tranˈsendəns/
noun
existence or experience beyond the normal or physical level.

Used in a sentence: See the Spiritual Growth Tips below.

synonyms: excellence,  supremacy,  incomparability, matchlessness, peerlessness, magnificence; rare paramountcy

While reflecting on this word in the context of some powerful biblical statements, I sensed the following Tips come to my mind:

Jesus Guarantees Transcendence To His Elect

1 Corinthians 15:17-18
“16 And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. 18 Then those also who have died in Christ are lost.” ~ Jesus (1 Corinthians 15:17-18 NIV)

“Jesus personally guarantees spiritual transcendence in the life and death of each of His true Follower!” (Matthew 23:39 & 28:20) ~ © gfp ’42™

“God, The Father’s Son, Jesus’, transcendent, triumphal “Yes!” to Satan’s defeatist “No!” is His resurrection from the dead as expressed in the creedal statement based on Holy Spirit’s inspiration of 2 Timothy 4:1 :
“He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and His Kingdom will have no end.” ~ © gfp ’42™

The Elect’s Transcendence Is Rooted in Holy Spirit’s Power

“Because fearlessness, holiness, & transcendence are God’s will for Jesus Followers, He makes available His power to enable their fulfillment when we ask!” ~ © gfp ’42™
(Luke 1:74-75, Philippians 1:6, & 1 Peter 1:16 + Romans 8:18-30, 1 Corinthians 15:35-50, & 2 Corinthians 3:7-18)

Transcendence Only Results From Being in Christ

On love
Jesus loved you, as an individual, so much He died and rose from His grave to set you free from the penalty for your many sins plus grant you an abundant life in the dirty here and now, as well as the eternal hereafter!

“When I let little things become the big thing for which I consistently fight, I forsake joyful transcendence for the fleeting happiness of being the center of my own universe!” ~ © gfp ’42™
