This is one of the greatest distractions and mistakes of our time.

We say “it’s not about being good enough, God loves you as you are,” then we slap rules, expectations, “correct beliefs” and “best practices” on our backs and expect people to be able to shoulder that weight.

We ditched the belief that we had to be good enough to be saved, then we picked it right back up in order to be “holy” or “true believers” or “good Christians.”

The purpose of relationship with God is relationship.

End of story.

And when we give ourselves over to experiencing and living into that relationship as the center of our lives, THAT is when we find ourselves becoming something more.

Yet, at the same time we also discover, this something more was always there.

Buried deep within you.

You always were this person you are becoming, you just lost sight of it.

Connecting with God shifts the weights, the burdens, the expectations, the pain, the trauma, and the poor examples we’ve been given all our lives that have told us who we are and who we are supposed to be

God uncovers the truth of who we have always been, who we are becoming, and most importantly, who we are right now…

the Beloved of God.
