follow rules


I didn’t grow up with church. I thought it was a place you had to act just so, follow rules, and if not, you were doomed to hell. I thought I was beyond help, a weed and unworthy.

Have you ever felt that from a church or group?

Yes, its still messy, unfortunately. That’s why Jesus came.

It’s really about love, sacrifice and faith – not rules.


The obvious impossibility of carrying out such a moral program (The Law) should make it plain that no one can sustain a relationship with God that way. The person who lives in right relationship with God does it by embracing what God arranges for him. Doing things for God (law) is the opposite of entering into what God does for you (faith). Habakkuk had it right: “The person who believes God, is set right by God—and that’s the real life.” Galations 3:11-12partial
