the exhaustion of legalism

legalist God

I am a recovery legalist. Legalism is exhausting. Eventually the legalist reaches a threshold of pain, the line where his soul says to itself, “This is too hard.” Yet, we legalists go on and on despite the pressure of it, especially when we tabernacle our hearts in a colony of fellow legalists.

The legalists think that those outside their colony are still on a junket to “a far country” (Luke 15:13), but really what we have found is the freedom of coming home.
