‘Legalism is hard work. It never lets you rest. Legalism takes the focus off of God’s longing heart for you to have a passionate desire for him and turns your focus onto how good we can be to deserve goodness from him.’ P. Chad Keeteman
Legalism never teaches anyone on how to conquer any human weakness (sin) that separates a person from God. In fact, it more often chases people away from church, making it difficult for connection to the body of Christ and more importantly, it pushes people away from a relationship with God. It can lock doors of hearts that never needed to be locked.
Remember: God’s word is the standard, not our good judgment.
Paraphrased from 2/6/16 sermon Good or God
Be blessed and be a blessing!!!
