Wherein we find freedom from rules and new life in Christ, consider it no accident that we meet at a bar called Saints & Sinners, and are unable to make time for legalistic checklists because we're too busy being saints.
Jesus could have given us a new set of commandments — a hundred if he wanted — but Jesus doesn't want control. He wants love, and love is the opposite of control.
