“Man often tries to do through performance what God already did through creation.”
I think sometimes, we as believers, forget. Forget the power of God’s design in creation, forget the power of the Cross.
We forget that He loves us more than we could ever love ourselves. He wants connection with us more than we desire connection with Him.
He has already made a way through creation and through the Cross. There’s nothing left for us to do except choose Him – choose “us”.
We need to quit trying to perform for or earn what He has already made provision for!
