HEBREWS 13:9--"Do not be carried about with various and strange doctrines; for it is good that the heart be established by grace, and not with foods which have not profited those who have been occupied with them."
Religions are about law and what humans can do to win God’s favor. Only one spiritual truth is about grace—what God has done to make us right.
This is why only Jesus’ message can be called “Gospel,” and “Good News.”
Law is a depressant. Human beings struggle to be good enough for God. That was the problem addressed in Hebrews 13:9. The message was that law–bound Hebrews shouldn’t think a good relationship with God meant a return to the kosher table.
Grace is the elixir for the heart. It focuses on being right rather than doing right. We are made right with God in Jesus Christ. When we are right, doing right flows. This encourages the heart just like a good medicine!
