Freed From Self-Effort

dancing-to-be-done

Have you experienced the freeing power of God’s Grace? Have you been set free from self-attempts to please God by your behavior? I trust you have because otherwise you are just acting religious void of any real power. It’s the trap of ‘self-will’, of saying you can do this on your own, of believing the lie that you have to prove your love for God by what you do. God’s not keeping score, and He’s not mad at you. Don’t fall for the same lie that Adam and Eve did when the serpent told them “Do this and you will be like God” (Genesis 3:5). They were already clothed in the glory and grace of God, but they fell and believed THEY had to do something on their own. Religion promoting self-efforts is in error and far from what God wants for you. If you’re His child, He’s pleased with you right now regardless of your behavior. Experience more of His love and you’ll be free from self-efforts, condemnation, and guilt because “…if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed” (John 8:36).
