Christ Our Sufficiency (Part One): Deserving Nothing. Grateful for All.

"It was for this freedom that Christ set us free [completely liberating us]; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery [which you once removed]." (Galatians 5:1, AMP)

What is it about a man who makes him think he has to suffer to gain God’s attention and approval? What is it about him that makes him think things have to be difficult before they can be considered godly?

We sure don’t learn these from God. We don’t understand these from the word of life. These are mere concoctions of men to feed their ego. They seek to deserve that which God freely gives. Oh, what foolishness, and exercise in futility.

Rather than believing and trusting God, they are motivated by their pride and sense of wanting to be in control. (In some cases, these are put together to gain control over others – placing men whom God has set free back under bondage.)
