I came home from Bible study with my mind too full to blog.

The Prodigal God: Recovering the Heart of the Christian Faith

p 37 You can rebel against God and be alienated from Him either by breaking his rules or by keeping all of them. Careful obedience to God’s law may serve as a strategy for rebelling against God.

With this parable Jesus gives us a much deeper concept of sin.

You can avoid Jesus as Savior by keeping all of the moral laws.  If you do that then you have “rights”  God owes you answered prayers and a good life and a ticket to heaven when you die.

p 44 There are two ways to be your own Savior and Lord. One is by breaking all the moral laws and setting your own course, and one is by keeping all the moral laws and being very, very good.

I don't want to avoid Jesus as Savior. I don't want to be my own Savior.

I'm feeling convicted today. It's a good place to be.

I know I need a Savior.
