UGP 006 - Jesus of Grace - Pleasing or Trusting
TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE
Joel shares his testimony of grace. What happens when you fall off the “gerbil wheel”? If I mess up, how do I fix it? Pride makes me feed my performance and look for honors from men. What is legalism? It’s all about performance; rules; standards of behavior; the better you perform the more pleasing results you will have. The New Testament shows us the God of love, mercy and forgiveness
- If you are living in a community of shame, guilt or fear turn to the God who does not give us the spirit of fear. (2 Timothy 1:7; 1 John 4:18)
- Jesus said we cannot have two masters. (Matthew 6:24)
- We love God only because he loved us first (1 John 4:19)
- Abraham believed God and it was credited to him as righteousness. His trust in God made him righteous (Romans 4:3). A big difference from the Book of Mormon Doctrines and Covenants 132.
QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE
Pleasing God and trusting God can be both motivators. Motivators can be like masters.
Trusting God opens our eyes and hearts to experience that God is able to do all things. He can be trusted.
As a believer, become a safe place for others to come and share what they are struggling with.
