Reading Deuteronomy 9 and we see that Israel has been rebelling against God from the very first day Moses knew them (verse 24). What kind of love is this when God continues to accept His elect no matter what they do? Grace…my favorite word. Yet I fight against it. Pride and legalism bring me down. Grace, knowing that everything is from God, should humble me. Then I see “Christians” living lives of debauchery and I know this isn’t right either so I push against it with more legalism. Rarely being able to rest in His grace.
Will God really take me as I am?
