No burdens!

So why are you now challenging God by burdening the Gentile believers with a yoke that neither we nor our ancestors were able to bear? We believe that we are all saved the same way, by the undeserved grace of the Lord Jesus.” (Acts of the Apostles 15:10-11 NLT)

Boy do we Christians do this on a regular basis. We love to put rules and restrictions on believers. We burden with rules and useless rituals all in the name of religion. We are more like the Pharisees every day. 

We are all saved the same way. We all are sinners and saved only by the grace of God. We need to eliminate the rhetoric and get straight to the point. The Lord Jesus came to earth to be one of us. He died for us and he rise from the grave to save us from our sins. It's simple, it's not filled with "yokes" that we can't handle. No restrictions, rules, or exceptions. We are saved by the grace of Jesus! We don't need to do anything. We just need to accept that grace and love!

Dear Lord, thank you for loving me even when I'm unlovable. Thank you for not coming to burden me. You are amazing, your grace is amazing!
