Freedom to Get on with Life

Healthy theology makes us right with God, not because of anything we’ve done/not done, but because of what Christ has done through his revelation of dying and rising.

It is finished.
Any ounce of score-keeping that humans cling to has been settled.

Now we can stop expending our energies
to get in good with God.

This results in freedom…

Freedom to get on with life.
Freedom to love our families
and serve our neighbors.

Freedom to be who we are
in our vocations.

And - most of all
freedom to mess up.

In short,
freedom to be creaturely beings.
As we were created to be.

As Ever,
