Something to Think About until I Have Time to Blog about What I Think About It

"When sinful, broken, hurting people are pleasanly surprised at how accepting we are, and religious people are outraged at how accepting we are, there is a good chance we're starting to live like Jesus. We will have finally learned the difference between acceptance and agreement - a lesson religious people find hard to grasp" - Bruxy Cavey

Your thoughts?

This is a really, really beautiful and difficult lesson God has taught me. There is a very healthy tension that keeps you right there in the middle, next to Jesus - a balance between legalism and free-for-all. And it's nothing we ever conquer or get super good at, because we are screwed up humans going through the ebb and flow of life.

But that is what I strive for - to allow that tension to keep me from moving too far either way.
