"Since orthodox Christianity has always held firm to the basic belief that it is by looking at Jesus himself that we discover who God is, it seems to me indisputable that we should expect always to be continuing in the quest for Jesus precisely as part of, indeed perhaps as the sharp edge of, our exploration into God himself."

- N.T. Wright
"Lord, There Has To Be An Easier Way To Get To You"

"I thought 'Lord, there has to be an easier way to get to You."

This thought was a turning point in the life of someone at the end of her rope in a works-based, legalistic religion. She had been taught all her life that she had to jump through hoops to earn salvation, until finally gospel truth began to be spoken into her life several years ago.

She told her freedom story tonight in our home group.

Salvation, redemption and freedom are beautiful.

I don't think I've met any converts from a background like that. (Or if I have, they're keeping it quiet.) If you don't mind me asking, what kind of background did she come from?

Take care & God bless

Stories of people finding freedom are great to hear.
