Cheap Grace and Legalism

Cheap grace gives us license to do what God has clearly said we should not do.
Legalism strangles us. Both make us look bad in the eyes of non-Christians.
The answer is to fall head over heals in love with Christ. Then obeying the Bible becomes a matter of wanting to please the one you love, and not the terror of not making it into Heaven.  It is then that we can relax. Since we love him we don’t want shame to be brought to his name, and he will love us for eternity.
