❌Religiosity is about trying harder to do more. I’m not interested in religion, just give me Jesus. .
The Gospel is the opposite of religion. Religion says obedience brings acceptance. The Gospel teaches the opposite; Acceptance brings obedience.
Religion says " behave, then believe, then belong" (act right, think right, talk right then I'll fit in, I’ll belong )... The Gospel teaches "Belong, then believe, then behave"(amazing grace, great faith, great works). .
❤️Ephesians 2:8-10,” For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.”
