A couple of weeks ago, my Thursday Night Ladies Bible Study (The Jesus Who Surprises) took a detailed look at Religion vs. The Gospel. Sadly, when issues arise in our lives we all too often default to the Religion side of the chart instead of putting our faith in Jesus.
Take a look at the chart below. The Religion side of the chart represents a works-based faith, whereas The Gospel side represents grace. Which side of the chart do you tend to fall on? What does this say about your faith? Do you see any areas where your perspective needs to change?
“Fight the good fight for the true faith. Hold tightly to the eternal life to which God has called you, which you have declared so well before many witnesses.” 1 Timothy 6:12 (NLT)
