It's 2014 and Christians still out here yelling rules at people that lack a relationship with Christ that contextualizes those rules and enables us to do anything about them. Rules couldn't save the Israelites and they can't save us. You got a lot of lost churchgoers out there following rules right into oblivion trying to lead people to accept task master Jesus instead of introducing them to the lover of their souls. People will walk away from anything to follow Jesus when they've encountered Him but they'll run and hide from Him if they keep encountering a church that prioritizes the law over love
The beautiful thing about having a relationship with God is that He will not hold your past transgressions against you. Every minute is an opportunity to change who you were before. We are so blessed to have that.
“If I could hear Christ praying for me in the next room, I would not fear a million enemies. Yet distance makes no difference. He is praying for me.”—Robert Murray McCheyne (via foreverbeingmadebeautiful)
