Sticking to the letter of the law looks very good; very holy.  But it’s just glorified arrogance.  Legalism is falling from grace.  So am I being arrogant to maintain my ‘image’?   Would it be causing unnecessary conflict to change?


Galatians 5:4


You who are trying to be justified by law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace.


Galatians 5: 13-15


13You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. 14The entire law is summed up in a single command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” 15If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.


 


Psalm 85:10 


Love and faithfulness meet together;
       righteousness and peace kiss each other.
