We’ve been considering the difference between pleasing God and trusting Him. The motivation has come through The Cure: What If God Isn’t Who You Think He Is And Neither Are You. I am so impressed with the content of this book and think it hits a nerve among believers as we walk out the grace of God.
Today I want to look at a few questions to help us identify which path we are on. When are primary motivation is to please God, we follow the first path.
Pleasing God can look like “trying to change from who I was into who I should be. We constantly find ourselves working towards becoming more righteous.”
The second path of Trusting God looks different. On this journey we find ourselves “maturing into who I already am (based on what Christ has done). We are already righteous, made right by God the moment we believed.”
