I find it interesting that we, as believers, still struggle with the things Paul talks about to the Galatians 2,000 years ago. People who are supposedly strong believers still relying on what they do for Christ rather than what He did for us. In Galatians 3:24 Paul says, So the law was put in charge to lead us to Christ that we might be justified by faith. Nowhere does it say we are justified by the work we do for Christ, yet that is what we classify as a “good Christian”. Don’t get me wrong, I am not trying to say we don’t need to be good people. God created us to serve Him by serving and loving others, but that is not salvation. It is obedience and a byproduct of loving God and wanting others to know that love. Let us work to be a reflection of Christ and recognize that He does not expect us to be perfect or even strive for perfection, but rather to simply be a reflection of Him and His love.
