“The Bible’s purpose is not so much to show you how to live a good life. The Bible’s purpose is to show you how God’s grace breaks into your life against your will and saves you from the sin and brokenness otherwise you would never be able to overcome…the Gospel is, ‘if you are absolutely accepted, and sure you’re accepted, only then will you ever begin to obey.’” Tim Keller
