Reflections Along the Jesus Way
October 31, 2023 – Quote for the Day:
“I am a critic of religious legalism, but more importantly I am a deeply devoted Christian. I am also a recovering legalist, and I know the deadly power of religious legalism. I know that Christ set me free from its bondage. I know that I was blind but now I see (John 9:25). I must report what I see and who healed and rescued me, whether modern religious Pharisees like the implications of my story or not.
Grace helped me see that it is a travesty and a perversion of the gospel of Jesus Christ to be calling oneself a Christian while insisting that the work of salvation is primarily a human effort or a combination of what Jesus did plus what we accomplish on our own. God’s grace denies all heretical ideas and philosophies that proclaim human effort to be necessary to gain God’s favor.”
