“It’s easy to say ‘Jesus is my Savior.’ But sometimes people’s approval is my functional Savior.”
Bob Hyatt has been speaking to us at our Yearly Meeting’s pastors’ conference, and he’s been quite helpful to me. Last night, he kept reminding us the good news of the gospel: God’s grace through Jesus gives us our identity, our hope, our salvation, everything. We’re so tempted to let other things become our identity, our hope, our salvation. I’ve got several functional Saviors that need to be crucified and not resurrected.
