How do you “balance” knowing how forgiven we are with our sense that we need to learn more and more how to behave in a holy way? I’m thinking that it’s no longer my job to try to behave rightly. That’s already accomplished by the Cross (If you don’t understand this, we should talk. It’s a vital piece of the Truth.). Instead, I need to keep renewing my mind on the matter of believing how incredibly loved, adored, protected and favored I am by God. As I believe this, my behavior will be a non-issue.
