Tullian Tchividjian: A High View of Law & Grace

"A high view of the law... demolishes all notions that we can do it–it exterminates all attempts at self-sufficient moral endeavor. We’ll always maintain a posture of suspicion regarding the radicality of unconditional grace as long as we think we have the capacity to pull it off. Only an inflexible picture of what God demands is able to penetrate the depth of our need and convince us that we never outgrow our need for grace–that grace never gets overplayed... 

So a high view of law equals a high view of grace. A low view of law equals a low view of grace."
