the fulfilled law

by max lucado
 
“He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 1:6 NIV

Religious rule-keeping can sap your strength. It’s endless. There is always another class to attend, Sabbath to obey, Ramadan to observe. No prison is as endless as the prison of perfection. Her inmates find work but they never find peace. How could they? They never know when they are finished.

Christ . . . fulfilled the law for you. Bid farewell to the burden of religion . . . God pledges to help those who stop trying to help themselves.

[“i give you permission to be imperfect” -pastor jim]
