A Treasured Trust


God cares less about your obedience than He does about your trust. It's why He so enjoys hanging out with you. To the extent you believe obedience is higher than trust, so is the height and thickness of the wall of failure you believe you have to keep pulling down between you and God. There is no wall—He removed it forever.

    Grace allows for sin but isn't a license for us to sin

    Love this, Ralph. An amazing, wonderful truth to wrap your head and heart around ...let those newborn legs of trust learn to stand strong on His promises and His faithfulness and His accomplished work. =)

    So very true! I love the fact that there's no wall at all, and I feel so lucky every day that he picked me out to be his special daughter, my Abba Father is the Awesome, and he loves that I trust him. And there is nothing like unconditional love!
