As believers, we all stand by grace answering the hardest call…”believe and be-living!”
What we experience when moving away from grace is not liberty, but the bonds of legality, whether formally or practically. (Yes, licentiousness is a form of legalism.) Where we are not overcome by the abundance of His life-giving love…we are apt to be found attempting to build ourselves up into His image.
Idolatry is banished only in the light of God’s glory beheld in the face of Jesus Christ.
Grace, mercy, and peace to you!
