Are you still down there?
Are you still making excuses for not being in Love?
Is guilt and shame what drives you?
Vs. 19 “Now we know that whatever the law says it says to those who are under the law.”
If you are still down there I am going to have to ask why do you want to stay down there.
This was the most painful time of my life and I would be willing to bet it was or is for you as well so why do some people chose to stay there?
Could it be that they don’t know any other way?
Is it possible that a person can become addicted to guilt and shame?
Perhaps even shame is comfortable and some are afraid of the unknown concept of Grace?
Here is a free gift just for those people:
Vs. 21 “But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.”
Chose Life today and crawl out from under that burden. You will be surprised how light and easy He makes your life.
Want a good starting point and understanding on Grace?
When we rely and lean on God for everything instead of ourselves, it naturally creates obedience for our Lord out of Love, honor and respect for all He has done for us. Great post!
Thank you Lara but I guess I would ask you this question – Obedience to what?
I am no longer under the law – that was my tutor and that brought me to Christ but after I am in Christ what role do you see the law having?
The law was taught “until John” – why is that?
The law is good for those under the law – so who isnt under the law?
Sorry I ask so many questions but I have found that the most desturctive and pervasive lie in the church today has to do with the law and its role in our relationship to God.
The link below is 7 simple questions and scripture – I would really enjoy your thoughts on them:
Perhaps the reason we struggle with accepting His grace for us is that we live in a world that demonstrates very little of it. Everything is performance based. Even in Christian circles….or should I say: ” Especially” in Christian circles.
So very true! I am in the process of reading The Furious Longing of God by Brennan Manning – Great book about that very issue. The saddest part is that the church which should be the least performance based is often times the most performance based.
I am considering starting an online church for that very reason. What do you think?
