Religion gives us unending work and distractions.
God’s gift is rest from useless work and focus on His love for us,

Religion says, “You are what you do so take on one more job, plan one more program, wear one more hat.”
God wants us to be formed only by His perfect love for us, in us, and through us.

  • one of my favourite part of the prayers of confession (is this uniquely Methodist?) is:

    “Forgive us, we pray. Free us for joyful obedience, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen”

    I’m not sure how to put it, but through Jesus, being obedient/righteous is no longer a chore.
