Found on a blog from 2010 about obedience hurts. Its thought provoking, a little different but I can’t deny it hits the mark. I truly believe we are to live under the mercy and grace of God.
"Obedience plays no role in the life of believer. The minute somebody tells you that you must “obey God,” you have met somebody who is a slave to sin. Why? Because in order to be obedient you must define what it is that you must be obedient to. And that leads you to putting yourself under law. “For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace (Romans 6:14).” The Christian life is one of trust and dependence on the indwelling Holy Spirit, not one of repentance and obedience to rules and laws designed to modify our behavior. The more “law” we subject ourselves to the more sin we will stir up. Therefore, we become mastered by it. That is why the Bible says that “the power of sin is the law (1 Corinthians 15:56).” Laws, rules, tenants, precepts and principles are not what guide a Christian. It is the grace of God that “teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age (Titus 2:12).” The sooner we trust in the Holy Spirit to guide us from within the quicker we will stop relying on our flesh’s inability to be obedient."
