Why is Paul so Frustrated?
The PAIN of His Personal Experience

Paul’s Frustration was his best attempt to:
Protect God’s Church
Jesus + NOTHING = Salvation

Jesus + Keeping the OT Law = Salvation
Paul’s Frustration was Fueled by:
Passion to advance God’s Kingdom
"The gospel is not a Help Wanted Ad where God is looking for a few good men and women. It's a Help Offered Ad, where God through the power of his Spirit and the gift of his grace, he takes bad men and women and makes them good."
~ John Piper
Before he spent time with men -- Paul first spent time with God!
When I’m Slipping into a “Try-Harder” Approach:
I grow frustrated.
I just feel tired.
I end up conceited or defeated.
"If you're tired and worn out on religion, come to me and I'll show you how to do it. I'll teach you the unforced rhythms of grace. My yoke is easy; my burden is light."
~ Jesus, Matthew 11
“Cheer up! You are far worse than you’ve ever imagined. But far more loved than you’ve ever imagined.”
~ Jack Miller
