Blunt God and the Hybrid Gospel

A prayer in response to Galatians 2:15-21

Blunt God, you don’t leave any wiggle room on this one, do you? Either the salvation you offer is all in Christ or it is not in Christ at all. I love Jesus, but sometimes find a hybrid gospel appealing, adding some current spirituality to faith in Jesus, topping the gospel with my hard work or winning personality, augmenting grace with my pleasant idols. Confront me again with the unvarnished truth that my salvation is in Christ alone. Amen. (BC 22)
