    Another good article, Scott … one that will apply to everyone who reads it, if they will admit it. While our lives will continually change as we are being transformed into His image, God’s grace is sufficient for us all, even when we fail to live up to man’s standards of what a believer in Christ should look like. No one knows the motives of another man’s heart yet we stand in judgment of one anothers actions as if we are God Himself.

    One thing that has helped me on both ends of this spectrum is to remember that (1) God’s grace is sufficient; and (2) I am obligated to afford to others the same level of grace God has lavished on me when they fall short. I dare not demand anyone live up to MY standards when I fail to live up to God’s. Yet, we all stand as redeemed, sanctified, and abundantly blessed because the price has already been paid and our redemption made firm through Christ Jesus our Lord!

    Good word, Scott … again, you’ve knocked the ball out of the park! 🙂

    Thank you for this post. It’s so discouraging to walk through a world where ‘religion’ is based off of legalism and rules. So many people miss the whole point. It’s rare to find like-minded people when it comes to Christianity and who we are in Him. Reading this has encouraged me though. So thank you!

    […] I have written before about the famous quote that Christianity is a relationship, not a religion. However, no matter how many of us use that quote over and over, most of us fail to cultivate a deep friendship with God that carries for more than a few days or weeks before we lose it again. Something about a lasting relationship with Him seems to be unattainable in our mountains and valley journeys of spiritual life and if we’re honest, also too mystical to actually hold real value in our daily activities. Being too heavenly minded to be of earthly good, or something like that. […]
