As believers, we understand salvation is by God’s grace, and there’s nothing we can do to earn it. We trust in Christ’s death and resurrection.
But like the Garden of Eden, there’s a temptation to think that if I knew or did a little more, I could be more godly. We start to mix in rules and parts of the law in an effort to be better.
In part 6 of my new series, The Perfect You, I share how Jesus spent part of His earthly ministry explaining the futility of attempting to achieve righteousness through obeying the law. Thankfully He’s provided a better way under a new covenant!
Adding even a pinch of the law into our daily living is a dangerous invitation to sin. We are much safer under grace.
P.S. This series is inspired by my new book, “The Perfect You: God’s Invitation to Live from the Heart,” now available!
