“You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you?” Galatians 3:1
Living by faith in God’s grace is difficult. Our human nature likes to be religious and measure our ability to obey laws and keep religious observances. It loves to calculate how much of the Bible we read, how long we pray, how often we attend church services and other gatherings. Our natural inclination is to compare our efforts with those of others and congratulate ourselves if we have done more. But this is foolishness, not faith. Instead, we trust God’s grace. He has done all that is necessary to save us.
