My assumptions of what grace and life in Christ look like often reflect my former religious imaginations. Now just because I wrote "religious", don't assume I refer to anything to do with organized religion or church. Instead, what reminds me of those past perceptions are the voices of the world at large. I mean basically everybody. And the subject matter makes no difference, for those familiar imaginations bend even random thoughts and words accordingly. This is the mind or logic of the world. My being in Christ is the only thing that delivers me from it. Don't let anyone convince you that you play by the same vain imaginations.
