This is the second teaching in the Grace Busters series. This series deals with identifying obstacles and those things that prevent us from receiving God’s grace.
Fear, unbelief and religion keep us bound, restricting and holding us back from accepting the freedom that God has for us. These are things that need to be addressed so we can move ahead and grow in our Christian life.
This is the first message in a series addressing the Grace Gap: both the lack of understanding of God’s Grace as well as those things that keep us from taking hold of that which he would give us.
Legalism seeks to close the Grace Gap by adding to or turning to rules and rituals rather than fully depending on the Grace of God alone. Legalism of the heart versus legalism of the mind is also addressed in this teaching.
