Human Being not Human Doing

I was reflecting this morning on the wonderful liberating truth of justification by Faith alone. It frees us from the paralysis of trying to DO lots of things to please other people or to meet our own demanding standards. God has done EVERYTHING needed for us to be right with Him. Our worth comes from adoption into His family, and from His unconditional love for us, not from any other external source. Which is good news…

There is an excellent chapter applying this truth in Going the Distance which is a really good book about avoiding burn out in ministry. Highly recommended.
