GIG 249 - If It's Not About Morality and Religion, Then What?
But if life in Christ is not about morality and religion, then what is it about? If it's not about our own pursuit of right and wrong, then how do we know how to live? It involves getting away from the religion and morality tree, and in many ways it begins with understanding our new identity in Christ. We're not trying to become something by maintaining a certain level of performance or morality. Rather, God has already made us righteous and He's already given us a brand new identity that He is already fully pleased with and that He fully accepts! So rather than "doing" in order to try to become what we think God wants us to be, we are meant to rest and relax in who He has already made us to be, and to live from our new identity.
