Living with a False View of God

carrying-the-burden-in-honduras

If we do not allow Jesus to recalibrate our image of God we are probably going to live with emptiness, guilt, suspicion, and fear. If we take spiritual matters seriously, we will likely be driven to religious activism to secure a place in God’s good books. We will function like servants and not like sons. Christian living will become dutiful, joyless, and burdensome. We may give it our best shot, but inside we’re running on empty. We may wear a smile, but our heart is struggling to keep going. A false view of God sabotages¬†our spiritual life. Vital Christianity involves knowing that we have a Christlike God.
