In the hallways of the Christian world you sometimes hear, “we should ask if an action would be right or wrong before doing it.”
I’m afraid you and I are in trouble if we should indeed apply that advice.
You know why?
If you were to ask yourself on a continuous basis the question “Would it be right or wrong for me to do this or this action,” at least three things happen:
1) You become self-absorbed and insecure.
2) You are hindering the indwelling Spirit to freely and spontaneously flow through you.
3) You become a rigid, judgemental legalist instead of being a care-free, contagious and gracious person who lives by faith from the wide, open spaces of God’s grace land.
Here’s the deal…
Asking yourself the question, “Is this action right or wrong” is the same as stepping back into the garden of Eden and choosing to eat of the “tree of the knowledge of good and evil.”
As Christians our job isn’t to decide:
1) What is right and what is wrong, or
2) To do more of those “right” things.
Our job is simply to live and walk by faith…
In this video I’ll share how you can know you live by faith so that you’ll experience joyful freedom!

Summary: the definitive question for the Christian is not, “would this action be right or wrong,” but is Christ expressing His life through me, am I depending on Him as my life source? That’s the question.
Your life calling is not to do right, but to believe right. Why? Because right living comes from right believing.
If you believe right, you’ll automatically live right.
P.S. In two weeks time we’ll answer the question “What brings God glory? How is He glorified?” The answer to this question will help you to be who you’re called to be and to do what you’re called to do without strain and stress.
