“Do this … and this … and that but don’t do that … or that … or this.”
Does your idea of what it means to follow Jesus include conformity to a long list of do’s and don’ts? Is your understanding of Christian living controlled primarily by what you are or are not doing? What role does religious activity play in our spiritual development?
The gospel is good news. It is an announcement of what Jesus has d-o-n-e on our behalf. The gospel is not a book of instructions telling us what to do or what not to do. The essential message of Christianity is not “do” or “don’t” but done.
Christian living is not just about following Jesus but re-following Him every day as we learn to rest in the gospel of what Jesus has done.
