Reflections Along the Jesus Way

June 11, 2023 – Quote for the Day:

“God’s grace is proof that our currency – our medium of spiritual and religious exchange – is not accepted in the kingdom of heaven.  We cannot pay for or earn any standing with God because he doesn’t accept our ‘money.’  Christ-less religious institutions would have us believe that the religious currency it prints in the church basement will enable us to buy a ticket to heaven.  But God’s grace says that God’s ‘money’ is free.  Of course, within legalistic, authoritarian religious institutions God’s grace doesn’t really count for much because their legalisms blind them so they just don’t get it.”
