Battering the legalistic idiot in me
I know that I can't earn God's love and acceptance but I still spend a lot of my time trying to.
There are five people God has used most regularly to save me from this: John Piper, CJ Mahaney and Terry Virgo through their teaching, Paul Woodward through his teaching and leadership, and Debbie in pretty much everything - she is so gracious to me and won't let me be otherwise with myself or others.
Here is Piper in full flow talking about the difference between duty and love in how Christians are to live. I'm so glad this is true, and so glad God has let me know it...
