I got this in an email from an old friend the other day, who is freshly learning to live loved. I really like the way he qorded this.
Once I began to understand what it means to live loved, I started seeing the gospel afresh in many places. I’m seeing how essential it is to keep the gospel in the foreground, to stay near the Cross and not slide into a soft legalism of “practical Christian living” that makes what I do the main thing rather than what Christ has done (and continues to do) for me.
That’s a mouthful!
