Your worth does not earn God’s love.  God’s love makes you worthy.

Some people think that the Gospel is freedom from ‘tradition’ and liturgy.  They attend church services where it’s relatively free-form.  Underlying the sermon, however, the pastor binds the conscience of the congregants in rules.

In liturgical settings, the service is not focused on the self.  It appears to be ‘bound’ in tradition, but the service and the preached word communicate Grace.  In which of the two can one find true freedom?
