Paul's passion for the gospel is clear in his passionate appeal to the Galatians. His is astounded that they can see the breathtaking beauty of the gospel of grace then turn back to a performance religious treadmill. Strangely, there are people who want you to incrementally return to this miserable gospel by trying to disguise it as the truth. They want you to return to performance slavery! Are you guilty of this kind of reversal of the gospel? The gospel is not about being nice, it is about God's total provision of objective righteousness for the wicked sinner. Can you identify this error in your thinking and drive to perform? Do you realise that those embracing such an error deserve to be eternally cursed? If you know someone who is attracted to, or is trapped in this anti-gospel performance slavery, does your heart go out to them because you know they have placed themselves in a damnable position before God? It is salvation by Christ alone or it is no salvation at all. It is self-destruction. Never lose sight of the gospel of grace or the authority of Scripture through which it comes. Turn back to grace now.
