Since coming back from Vienna, Brie and I have been doing a Bible study called Gospel Transformation put out by World Harvest Mission. Our chapter this morning was entitled Barriers to Believing. Here are just a few passages I underlined. I hope it speaks to you as much as it did me. Particularly the last sentence really made Brie & I think long and hard!
"The cost for the recipient of God's grace is nothing -- and no price could be higher for arrogant people"
"There are things we do as Christians that are clearly wrong. These are acts of the flesh that are overtly sinful and disobedient"
"God views our works as acceptable and good because of Jesus"
"Whatever is not of faith is sin" (Rom 14:23)
