Quote: Living by Grace…

3 May

Religion prods the flesh to either try harder with perfectionist flesh or give up and resort to immorality.  It’s only when we see our union with Jesus Christ that we understand that there is a third way to live.  It’s not by trying harder, and it’s not by giving in to immorality.  It’s a life motivated by the freedom of grace that releases God’s Spirit to be all we need in every moment.

From ‘God Without Religion’ – Andrew Farley – pp 148
