Rules and regulations, rarely produce internal change – REVELATION DOES.
Regulations can modify my behaviour, for a time – but REVELATION THAT COMES FROM A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHANGES ME FOREVER.
Obedience to Jesus, will get me so much further than obedience to anyone else.
Keep the focus clear – “I am called o follow Jesus, no one and nothing else”.
There may be other people occasionally involved in the process, but if for some reason, there is not, it has to be “Me & Jesus, and together, we will be alright”.
