Chapter 13: Devotion Without Obligation category


#1

Let’s move on to chapter 13., learning to live by passion instead of obligation. So much of religion is crafted around fear and guilt, forcing people to do what they “should” do, rather than learning how Jesus passion begins to overrun their own and they actually have a desire to be about the things Jesus is about.

This chapter invites us to switch gears from doing what we “should” to a growing devotion to Christ that loving others, connecting with them, and walking with them through pain is not our obligation but the overflow of our growing friendship with him.
