Rest day for me=more time for morning reading
“And it is the love of Christ as seen in the gospel-it is our response of gratitude for His grace-that gives desire to duty and changes “ought to” to “want to”
-Jerry Bridges, “Transforming Power of the Gospel”
How many times have we done our service at church out of guilt?
How many times have we done it because of how we would look to others?
How about doing it because that’s what is needed?
How about the times we have done it because it is what we were brought up to do?
I can say honestly that I have probably done the majority of those.
But this book reminds me that we should be doing it because we are sinners that need Jesus.
I recommend it!
The gospel should be our motivation.
Do you struggle with legalism?
You are not alone!
