SEP 20 // Rigid…


SEP 20 // Rigid rules about food and weight won’t bring you any closer to God. It may feel “safe” to shape your life with rules, but ultimately the more you focus on keeping them, the less likely you are to make decisions based on love and freedom. This perpetuates a cycle of “slip-ups,” followed by self-punishment, shame, resolve and then another slip-up. Christ’s death on the cross brought an end to rule-keeping as a form of righteousness. Ask him today to help you give yourself grace to abandon rigid rules in favor of a life of balanced moderation. //

“If a living relationship with God could come by rule-keeping, then Christ died unnecessarily.” 

–  Gal. 2:24 (MSG)
