Young wives and moms often ask, "What do I do?" Whether we're asking for direction in our marriages, in our mothering, or in our ministries, we tend to want to know what the list is. Just give me a list, and I'm good to go. Just tell me the steps to holiness and I can do that.
Except, we can't. We can't keep the law perfectly. There is only one perfect human and He died with your "I can't" nailed to Him. The key, then, is learning to rest in the security of the Gospel, wherein all of our lists are fulfilled and we know we are loved, accepted, and perfect in His sight. Our "I can'ts", then, become His perfect righteousness and finished work. AMEN!
Heather has been a dear friend and a listening ear with an open home and heart to all of our family. She is our pastor Jim's wife, homeschooling mom of five, cake baker extraordinaire, and lover of Christ. Recently we were chatting about how the security of the Gospel and the love of God changes everything, including our lists. Thought you might like to listen in!
