We do so because through His virgin birth, sinless life, sacrificial death and powerful resurrection He has freed us from the pressure and pitfall of legalism. The gospel of Jesus Christ empowers us to live a life of bold holiness without having to conform to man-made rules that only serve to promote a false spirituality.
Along with that the gospel constantly reminds us that we belong to the living God because of who Christ is and what He did. Finally, the message of the gospel is one that addresses our hearts and not just our actions. Through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ we're brought into an intimate, worshiping relationship with the living God where our hearts and mind are dominated by a craving for His word, a determination to walk in His ways and desire to proclaim His kingdom.
