After several years of teaching in house church and in mentoring relationships I find myself unwinding unnecessary complicated notions about the Christian life. I end up saying the following a lot:
- God really does love you
- God’s grace really does cover all your sin
- God began a good work in you and really is carrying it forth to completion
- Just keep your faith and trust in Christ
In the last few days I’ve been repeating these things to myself because I really need to hear them.
The problem is our beliefs get distorted. They go from the simple precepts listed above and morph in to something more complicated.
