It's easier to wrap our heads around independently performing for God, rather than understanding that as we were under the law, dying because it was to heavy for us, we couldn’t hold it, Christ set us free, completed the law on our behalf, and gave us his Spirit to hold us up and help us.
Hebrews 12:2 says “Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith.” He is the justifier. He is the sanctifier. Sanctification isn’t something he’s assigned for us to do, it’s something he’s promised us that his Spirit would do.
What happens when we use the law to perform for God, and how is that different from learning to depend on God in all things? Gretchen and Katie discuss dependence on God vs independently performing when it comes to spiritual disciplines.
