The Need for Grace

In the midst of an interesting two-part series on simplicity over at Amy’s Humble Musings, this helpful gospel reminder:
"Having been saved by grace, we try to live by works. But the purpose behind what we were given was not to make us feel good about ourselves because we are doing all the right things, it was given to help us realize our desperate condition and our continual need for the grace of God in everyday life. It was given to drive us to our knees and to deepen our relationship with our God as we work out our salvation with fear and trembling."
