Confusing Christianity with legalism


*
‘You may be confusing Christianity with legalism.
Legalism is joyless because legalism is endless.
There is always another class to attend, person to teach, mouth to feed.
Inmates incarcerated in self-salvation find work but never joy.
How could they?
They never know when they are finished.
Legalism leaches joy.

Grace, however, dispenses peace.
The Christian trusts a finished work.

  “Gone are the exertions of law-keeping, gone the disciplines and asceticisms of legalism,
gone the anxiety that having done everything, we might not have done enough.
We reach the goal not by the stairs but by the lift …
God pledges His promised righteousness to those who stop trying to save themselves’.

Grace offers rest. Legalism never does’.
(Max Lucado: Max on Life, page 22)
