UGP 010 - Performance Based Religion, Part 1

TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE

Performance based religion is very different than grace.  The idea of following rules to be acceptable to God can define a performance based religion. A religion that requires standards of behavior and the performance of those behaviors can actually run the risk of not having a relationship with God.

SCRIPTURAL REFERENCES

  • All our trespasses are forgiven (Colossians 2:13-15)
  • Wedding feast and the man not wearing the wedding garments (Matthew 22:11-14)
  • Do not judge (Colossians 2:16-19)
  • Rest from our dead works (Hebrews 6:1)

QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE

“I want to please God, but I need to know what the standards are”

Performance based religion is universal

“On my worst day, I’m no less an accepted, beloved child of God because it isn’t what about what I’ve done, it’s about what Jesus did” ~Joel

Sanctification is the internal change that works through us when we receive grace
