Set Free from the Spiritual To-Do List

“He canceled the record of the charges against us
and took it away by nailing it to the cross.”
Colossians 2:14

Even though I came to faith in Christ at a very young age, it has only been in the last few years that I have begun to marvel over all that God has done for me through the Gospel. For most of my life, subtle forms of legalism and spiritual perfectionism kept me locked up in fear and pride instead of living in the freedom God’s grace provides.

In recent years, God has used teachers like C.J. Mahaney, Matt Chandler, and Tullian Tchividjian to open my eyes to beautiful aspects of the Gospel that I had somehow failed to grasp. In the following video, Pastor Tullian takes about 2 minutes to highlight a truth about our salvation in Christ that he believes many Christians regularly overlook… 

What a difference it makes to approach our Christian life not from the perspective of what we must do, but from the perspective of what Christ has already done!
