Legalism & Love

“And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets."” Matthew 22:37-40 ESV

Sometimes religious people are so caught up in “being good” and making sure that others aren’t sinning, that they forget to do everything out of love. Yes, Jesus and the Bible tell us to be obedient and to not sin, but it’s worthless if it doesn’t come out of our devotion and love for Him. We aren’t saved by obedience. There is nothing anybody can do to earn or deserve salvation. We are only saved by the grace and love of God and We should pour out worship, praise and adoration in response. We should obey the Word of God too, but as a response to Gods love and grace, not fear of losing our salvation. #savedbygrace #worshipandpraise #worshipper #discipleship #followerofchrist #goodgoodfather #childofgod #faith #shalom #onespiritonechurch #dailydevotional
