"If you are burned out by Christianity, if you feel you have failed the standards too many times, if you avoid God with as much intensity as you avoid your selfless friends, then perhaps you need to hear the gospel once more.
The gospel says, You are free by Christ’s blood because he says so. God has made a promise that won’t be broken. You didn’t earn it, and it’s not your job to prove that you could have earned it... It is unconditional, slightly offensive, and wildly liberating." [via]
