Reflections on Holy Communion 4

"Lord have mercy on us and incline our hearts to keep this law."

Is it possible to repeat these words, and yet see God’s law as opposed to grace?
Is there anything our churches need more today than to pray for the grace of obedience?
Is there any pagan concept more pervasive than freedom as undirected autonomy?
Or do we think we can obey God without his outpoured mercy?
Are we not under the law of Christ?
Lord , have mercy on us, and incline our hearts to keep your law
