Is going to church necessary? Does being a “good person” mean we are “good enough” as believers? Does God care about the “small” things in life? Only pastors can be in charge and lead others, right? God wants me to be happy, doesn’t He? What are your thoughts?
The moment that the “works” becomes about us, our faith is hindered — basically self has gotten in the way of what God was trying to accomplish in us. It’s seemingly true for too many things: when SELF steps into the situations God ordained, we’re stepping in front of God and limiting what He can do in our lives.
