Grist from the Reading Mill:"All to often I've wrongly concluded that the only way to keep licentious people in line is to give them more rules--to lay down the law. The fact is, however, the only way licentious people start to obey is when they get a taste of God's radical, unconditional acceptance of sinners. Grace alone melts the heart and changes us from the inside out. Progress in obedience happens only when our hearts realize that God's love for us does not depend on our progress in obedience" (From Tullian Tchivijian's "Jesus + Nothing = Everything," 51).
