We Get It Backwards

We get it backwards.  Not just you.  Not just me.  We.  We get things backwards.

Backward

Take, for example, those of us who follow a life of faith, a life of following Christ.

We believe that it’s about morality.  We believe that our faith is about being good and doing good.  We believe that strictly following religion is our way to God.

Instead, it’s about life.  We were dead, but God has made us alive through His Son.  Our relationship with Christ is our hope to be good in God’s eyes.  He did the work on the cross for us.  Not only is He the Truth and the Life, He is the Way.

How about us turning things back the right way.

Have you ever gotten things backwards?

    Any performance-based effort at what is called “faith” (but is really religion) has gotten it backwards. Been there done that don’t want to again.

    I would like to change that a bit, if I may. It is about a Life of Love and that is what makes the difference. We do seem to get it backwards, however I am doing my best to turn it around.

    Thanks Larry!
