The problem we have with God’s grace is that it’s all grace. That makes us uncomfortable, and I understand that. Our hearts are naturally built on legalism. Everyone feels like they should do something to get something, so we contort God’s grace into a manageable legalistic machine filled with daily QT routines and spiritual progress charts and how-to-avoid-sin and religious busy-ness. Nothing is inherently wrong with these things until they forfeit God Himself.
