Jesus is not impressed with religions deeds and accomplishments, neither is he repelled by immorality and the failure of sinners. Greg discusses Jesus' ministry to the Samaritan woman he meets at the well.
In one of the most startling promises he ever gave (John 14:12) Jesus told us that we will do even greater things than he did. What did he mean? What can be greater than opening the eyes of the blind or raising the dead?
Grace is the narrow road that leads to eternal life — it’s not crowded, it’s the road often not taken. Grace involves accepting God without any reservation(s).

God told Jeremiah to tell those who were merely fulfilling their religious obligation to be inside the four walls of a “holy place” that they were having a religious experience but missing the meaning.
