From His Heart
The Ditch of Legalism – Part 1
June 9, 2023
Legalism is setting up rules you must follow in order to walk with the Lord—and it is really easy to fall into this thinking if you aren’t careful. What is the ditch of legalism, and why is it so dangerous? Why is Paul so fired up as he talks about this issue? In this message called, THE DITCH OF LEGALISM, Pastor Jeff Schreve shares three discoveries about legalism and how you can avoid it by keeping your eyes on the cross and by walking on the road of grace and truth. This message is from the series, BEYOND AMAZING: UNDERSTANDING THE GRACE OF GOD.
